THE COMPLETE DAVID BOWIE (REVISED AND UPDATED 2016 EDITION) NICHOLAS PEGG

The biggest edition yet – expanded and updated with 70,000 words of new material

Critically acclaimed in its previous editions, The Complete David Bowie is recognized as the foremost source of analysis and information on every facet of Bowie’s work. The A-Z of songs and the day-by-day dateline are the most complete ever published. From his boyhood skiffle performance at the 18th Bromley Scouts’ Summer Camp, to the majesty of his final masterpiece Blackstar, every aspect of David Bowie’s extraordinary career is explored and dissected by Nicholas Pegg’s unrivalled combination of in-depth knowledge and penetrating insight.

“A great deal has happened since the last edition was published in 2011,” says author Nicholas Pegg. “Just a few weeks after that edition appeared, the legendary Top of the Pops performance of The Jean Genie was unearthed, and hey presto, the book was already out of date! But that was nothing compared with what was just around the corner.”

Bowie’s sensational 2013 comeback with The Next Day is covered in full in the new edition, alongside such milestones as the record-breaking V&A exhibition David Bowie is, the stage musical Lazarus, and Bowie’s final masterpiece Blackstar. The Complete David Bowie discusses and dissects every last development in rock’s most fascinating career. Speaking with those closest to the star, including Bowie’s veteran producer Tony Visconti, Pegg has been able to include a wealth of previously unpublished details about the recording of The Next Day and Blackstar, including the recording dates of each and every song, not to mention the tracks that didn’t make those albums. Plus, one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures in the Bowie story, David’s one-time girlfriend Hermione Farthingale, shares new, exclusive insights into their time together and their creative collaborations: “She had read my book and was keen to talk to me and to tell her story,” states the author, “and she did, at great and generous length. Hermione spoke with such warmth and affection about her time with David. She shared some wonderful insights into the music, and the stage and screen work that they shared in the late sixties, and also the songs that David wrote about her. Hermione’s memories have really enhanced the book.”

The Complete David Bowie is the ultimate collection for Bowie-aficionados, and a loving tribute to one of music’s most beloved and influential stars.

The Complete David Bowie (Revised and Updated 2016 Edition) will include:

    * THE ALBUMS - detailed production history and analysis of every album.

    * THE SONGS - hundreds of individual entries reveal the facts and anecdotes behind not just the famous recordings, but also the most obscure of unreleased rarities - from 'Absolute Beginners' to 'Ziggy Stardust', from 'Abdulmajid' to 'Zion'.

    * THE TOURS - set-lists and histories of every live show.

    * THE ACTOR - a complete guide to Bowie's career on stage and screen.

    * PLUS - the videos, the BBC radio sessions, the paintings, the Internet and much more.

“I've already bought four different editions of Nick's book, and now I'm going to have to buy another one - but I'm not complaining. Vital for any Bowie-Nut. Unmissable.” – MARC RILEY, BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC

“Part biblical reference work, part engrossing general read … Nicholas Pegg is one of the foremost minds in Bowieology” – Q

“All Bowie books must now be measured against Nicholas Pegg’s The Complete David Bowie” – TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

“My go-to book for anything to do with Bowie. No other book delivers such fascinating and forensic detail into the great man’s work” – GARY KEMP, SPANDAU BALLET

FOOTNOTE: You may be aware that Mr Pegg has 'appeared' as a Dalek on Dr Who, more times than you can shake a plunger at. He’s pictured here on an afternoon off, when he purloined the TARDIS and gate-crashed a photo shoot on London’s Heddon Street, early in 1972. Can’t prove it, but it is true.
