PRIZE DRAW! FREE TO ENTER BW COMPETITION
Here's your chance to win one of two copies of BOWIE ODYSSEY 70 by Simon Goddard.
Recently published is this beautifully written 192-page book covering David Bowie in 1970. I've only just finished reading it myself and I highly recommend it. No wonder it is 'A Sunday Times Book of the Year 2020'.
Synopsis: He starts the decade a teenage pop idol. But the one-hit wonder who sang 'Space Oddity' is still very far from becoming the star who will one day define the 1970s. Not when he still has a band to find, a manager to sack, a mentally ill brother to save, a wife to marry and a rival called Marc Bolan to beat. Not when David Bowie still has no idea who or what David Bowie is.
Starting at the beginning of Bowie's incredible ten-year odyssey changing the course of pop music, Simon Goddard's bold and expressionistic biography weaves time, space, rock 'n' roll and social history to relive Bowie's 1970 moment by vivid moment.
About the author: Simon Goddard was born in Cardiff in 1971. He grew up in Wales and Scotland and went to art school in the North of England before becoming a music journalist in London. He is the author of six books including Songs That Saved Your Life (hailed by The Guardian as "the best Smiths book"), Mozipedia (a Mojo Readers' Book Of The Year), Ziggyology: A Brief History of Ziggy Stardust, Simply Thrilled, the mock-picaresque biographical novel Rollaresque ("an excellent history of the early years of The Rolling Stones" - The Times) and The Comeback: Elvis and the Story of the '68 Special.
