The career of David Bowie has been one of the most colorful and intriguing in modern rock history. In "The Complete David Bowie, " Nicholas Pegg chronicles the star's every move--from his first appearance as balladeer Davy Jones in the 60s, and his spectacular, gender-bending turn in the 70s as Ziggy Stardust, to his starring roles in films like "The Man Who Fell to Earth" and "The Hunger." This definitive reference also includes a detailed production history and an analysis of all Bowie's albums, including 2003's Reality; hundreds of entries with facts and anecdotes about all his songs, plus unreleased rarities; and set lists and histories of every live show.
