Synopsis: Bowie is a superbly illustrated account of the life and career of a rock icon. One of the great innovators, David Bowie created and inspired Glam-rock, Plastic Soul, the New Romantic Movement, Hard Rock, and half a dozen alternatives. A naturally restless talent, by the time the world looks like catching up, he has already moved on. Like a modern reality TV contestant, the young Bowie would have done anything for fame. Acting, playwriting, mime and dance were just some of his other activities while the music career developed. And yet as soon as success arrived, he hid behind different characters. He was Major Tom, he was Aladdin Sane, he was The Thin White Duke and, most famous of them all, he was Ziggy Stardust. It was only a matter of time before pop's first true chameleon turned his hand to films - including The Man Who Fell To Earth, Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence and Labyrinth - and theatre - where he won rave reviews on Broadway in The Elephant Man. And when he married international super model, Iman, the camera's turned on him as A-list celebrity on the red carpet. Today, in his 60s, his name resonates with every age group across the globe. In this book every phase of Bowie's extraordinary life is captured in almost 200 rare images from the vast and incomparable resource of the Getty Library collection.
