A Portrait of Bowie Reviews
While some of the interviews seemed like they were taking advantage of a chance in the spotlight, the rest were extremely interesting. A couple of the interviews made me almost tear up. Having the pictures out of order was a little confusing, but I still enjoyed looking through them. Rest in Peace, David Bowie, and thanks for a lifetime of amazing music.
Very interesting read. Sent me to the web time and again to check out a reference to a song, a painter, even the odd old TV show. I now have to revisit (and in some cases visit for the first time) the man's musical output.
Perfect for Bowie's hardcore fans
Of all the books published since Bowie sadly passed away, this is easily the most essential for the committed Bowie fan. It adds good information and anecdotes and takes an intelligent look at his his work as seen by those who worked with him. Full of insights and new information, as well as being lavish enough to make a perfect gift.
A beautiful oversized book, full of excellent photographs and featuring interviews with those who knew Bowie and were greatly impacted by his life and work. People like Nile Rodgers share their stories and experiences of working with the man, providing readers with an inside glimpse into this creative genius.
Perhaps this would have worked best concentrating on the photography as the interviewees seem a bit random, famous musicians who met him a few times, members of his various bands, and artists who painted him, that you don't get any idea of who he was as a person, feels like a very expensive cash in that looks better than it actually is.
