Drummer JOHN CAMBRIDGE publishes his eagerly awaited autobiography in September.

Bowie, Cambo & All the Hype by John Cambridge BOWIE, CAMBO & ALL THE HYPE traces the extraordinary and pivotal friendship between DAVID BOWIE and drummer John Cambridge, from the time when Bowie made his first major career breakthrough in 1969 to his death from cancer in 2016.

John 'Cambo' Cambridge lived with Bowie at Haddon Hall when he had his first hit record 'Space Oddity' and toured with him in Junior's Eyes. He was there when Bowie lost his father, passed his driving test and played his first Glam Rock gig with Hype, even acting as best man when Bowie married Angela Barnett in 1970. And if John had not persuaded his former Rats colleague Mick Ronson to join Bowie in February 1970, there might never have been a Ziggy Stardust or the stellar career which followed.

In Bowie, Cambo & All the Hype we get a backstage pass to meet the key people and witness the events of those crucial times in a funny, moving, story of a unique friendship that survived the Hype.

Review: 'You were a great player in that early transition from drumming David's acoustic sound to the full-on rock sound that eventually gave birth to Ziggy. You have a big story to tell.' - Tony Visconti.

About the Author: John Cambridge (Cambo) went from being a drummer in bars and clubs to drum with Mick Ronson, Robert Palmer, Marc Bolan and many others. He is known for his musical collaboration and life-long friendship with David Bowie. John was instrumental in introducing Bowie to guitarist and producer Mick Ronson, his friend and colleague from local band The Rats. John subsequently performed many iconic concerts with Bowie, Tony Visconti and Mick Ronson, including the 'first ever Glam Rock gig' with David Bowie's Hype at The Roundhouse in 1970.
