    1 thought on “The Complete David Bowie

    1. The Bible! This book is just the absolute business. Authorative, informative, witty, insightful and rigorously researched - plus, it's written by one of the Daleks so, double bonus!

    2. Let me say that I am probably one the biggest Bowie fans. I have everything that he's ever done as far a music, and I'm now trying to see his film work as well. My parents bought this book for me as a Christmas gift, and I'm still reading it. For me, its a bible for Bowie fans. Its something that every Bowie fan should read.This book covers everything that you could possibly want to know about Bowie. There's really no need to read any other Bowie reference work if you've read and/or own this boo [...]

    3. The complete David Bowie is a pretty good book to consult with for your Bowie needs. "*Channels Han Solo* I don't know, my Bowie needs are quite a bit," you might say. Mine too, my friend. I was born a David Bowie fan. Wearing a David Bowie t-shirt. Instead of saying "It's a girl!" the doctor said "It's a Bowie fan!" (or "It's another Bowie fan!", since my twin was born first).I've read a few Bowie books over the years (don't think they are on ?). I think this is the best one to get. Not annoyin [...]

    4. Yes, definitely the definitive Bowie overview. Song by song, album by album, etc. Pegg finds lots of unreleased and obscure tracks as well. Really thorough, and Pegg's a terrific writer. Highly recommended for the fan. Noobs probably want something a little lighter.I read a 1999 edition; surely more current/updated editions exist.

    5. Having now taken quite an intensive journey this year through the life and works of David Bowie, here is perhaps (and self-avowedly) the most comprehensive of all of these books. Structured ostensibly like a Discography/Filmography/Recording Date Diary, it's actually written like a normal biography, using this play-off between chattiness and completeness to set up Bowie as a multimedia monolith - warts and all - and to approach him along several faces, starting each time at the chronological beg [...]

    6. Where other writers about Bowie tend to treat their subject as an alternative religion, an epic tale of rock'n'roll excess where the music was more or less a footnote, or worst of all an excuse to go on about themselves for page after page after page, The Complete Bowie puts the art and the facts first and foremost, and in so doing ends up telling the story more accurately, coherently and above all excitingly than pretty much anyone else ever.And it really IS The Complete Bowie. From The Laughin [...]

    7. Nicholas Pegg's The Complete David Bowie is not a biography more of a reference book that includes biographical material. Pegg looks at every song in alphabetic order, revealing anecdotes and insights into lyrics. Every album in chronological order, delving into his state of mind whilst making them and who he had around him, videos, tours, including set lists, his acting career and then miscellaneous such as painting, internet etc. Originally I thought I'd be using it as a reference work but act [...]

    8. A beast of a book and bar the unexpected return of The Thin White David Bowie in 2014, there's not a spangled underpant or expressive mime uncatalogued. Essential.

    9. THIS IS NOT A BOOK YOU READ. This is a reference book for the extreme Bowie fan.There is already a newer edition than the one I have. And there will be yet another edition soon covering Bowie's final LP BLACKSTAR.This lists and comments on every David Bowie single; album and compilation.It also notes any song he covered in concert that was not his and did not appear on an album.The book is a monster and I will want that next volume.I really like David Bowie's work.

    10. Indispensable as a reference book, and equally fascinating to read from cover to cover. The best guide to a musician's work that I have ever had the pleasure to read.

    11. After David Bowie's passing, people were upset at losing such an iconic man but also someone who had compassion and talent. He left on a bang with his Lazarus album, and it shook everyone.This complete collection covers every song he wrote, concert he gave, and video made. It's an anthology dedicated to the work of David Bowie, and he even helped write it with Pegg to ensure it was accuratemerssphere/the-complete-

    13. I finally got quit going piecemeal on this one, and just ploughed in (as it gave me an excuse to trot out the Bowie music collection for the first time in a while) and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's a couple of minor errors and a bunch of typos, but this brick of a book is about as thorough a look at David Bowie's overall life and career and output as you might ever want. If you need to go deeper you can, of course, supplement it with volumes focused on specific aspects or periods, but on the wh [...]

    14. Just got this from the library and it will be the first book I buy for 2012. If you love David Bowie, it's a must. Love the way that it is organized. No pictures is the only draw back. Picks up where many of the biographers have left off. Talks about his role in Labyrinth which is really overlooked. Such an amazing career and an amazing old school artist.

    15. This is not a book to be read thru cover to cover, but rather, flipped open and perused as the whim strikes you. It's an exhaustive and somewhat exhausting tromp through David Bowie's life, and, as such, is alternatively fascinating and banal. Well worth the read, if this is the kind of thing you want to read.

    16. In my opinion it's the best Bowie book out there. Not only does it contain almost every piece of information worth knowing about Bowie's career, it's also very well written and neatly structured. I think the word "bowiepedia" would describe this 700 page giant of a book fairly well - and I would definitely recommend it to any Bowiephile interested in learning more.

    17. A must read for every Bowie fan. Its reference book likes structure - a section for every track; another for every album; another for acting; and so on - works perfectly. Pegg's highly readable book is a rich store of background information, biography, and insightful analysis.

    18. This is not the kind of book you read from cover to cover. It is, however, a very detailed account of David Bowie's professional life. Therefore, it is an invaluable reference for the David Bowie fans of the world.

    19. This guy! What a guy. I was watching the video for "Loving the Alien" just today. This book is a wonderfully detailed resource on David Bowie, but naturally it appeals only to a niche market. My edition doesn't cover Reality or anything after that, sadly.

    20. A massive and thorough reference source for Bowie's work. Definitely something to grab when the mood strikes or when you're seeking a bit of trivia, but tedious to attempt a front to back read. Borrowed from the library - I should just buy the thing, as I could go back to it endlessly.

    21. Fascinating subject - massively dull book. Only gets two stars because it's about the legend that is David Bowie.

    22. This is the sixth edition. Given recent events I may wait a few years before updating. Truely brilliant.

    23. Seriously encyclopedic. Includes everything you wanted to know, from who's standing by the wall making out in "Heroes" to the Diamond Dog hiding in Jareth the King's hosiery

    24. If you like David Bowie than you need this book. In his own words you get a detailed explanation of each album, each song, each lyric. Pull out all your David Bowie albums-Listen and Learn

    25. The definitive Bowie guide.This book is packed full of information about the great David Bowie. Exploring every song he ever wrote and how they came to be, this is a bible for all Bowie fans.
