Spider from Mars : my life with Bowie by Mick Woodmansey( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In January 2016, the unexpected death of David Bowie rocked the globe. For millions of people, he was an icon celebrated for his music, his film and theatrical roles, and his trendsetting influence on fashion and gender norms. But no one from his inner circle has told the story of how David Jones -- a young folksinger, dancer, and aspiring mime -- became one of the most influential artists of our time. Drummer Woody Woodmansey is the last surviving member of Bowie's band The Spiders from Mars which helped launch his Ziggy Stardust persona and made David Bowie a sensation. In this first memoir to follow Bowie's passing, Spider from Mars reveals what it was like to be at the white-hot center of a star's self-creation. With never-before-told stories and never-before-seen photographs, Woodmansey offers details of the album sessions for The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and Aladdin Sane: the four albums that made Bowie a cult figure. And, as fame beckoned but eventually consumed Bowie, Woodmansey recalls the wild tours, eccentric characters, and rock 'n' roll excess that eventually drove the band apart. A vivid and unique evocation of a transformative musical era and the enigmatic, visionary musician at the center of it, with a foreword by legendary music producer Tony Visconti and an afterword from Def Leppard's Joe Elliot, Spider from Mars is for everyone who values David Bowie, by one of the people who knew him best."--Dust jacket

David Bowie : the Berlin briefings( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Bowie had never intended to spend the best part of 24 months living in what was then still the divided city of Berlin. Indeed for many years he moved from location to location without having much of a base at all. But in the late 1970s he ended up in the former (and indeed future) German capital and it probably had more impact on the music he produced than any other neighbourhood he ever called home. With the influence of bands like Kraftwerk and Neu, the impact and guidance of co-composer and instrumentalist Brian Eno, and the gritty street life of the decadent city, all providing ambience and background, he made arguably the finest albums of his career, recording, as he did, just 500 yards from the later-demolished Berlin Wall. This film contains numerous interviews with Bowie and with others such as co-producer Tony Visconti, which focus on this strange but fascinating period of David Bowie's life and provide some understanding of and context for the radical departure he made from his previous chameleon-like incarnations, to being 'simply Bowie'
