"Pegg eloquently catalogues Bowie's proclivity for making radical jumps from one musical and fashion motif to another." - Publishers Weekly
"All Bowie books must now be measured against Nicholas Pegg’s The Complete David Bowie ... ‘It is not only a pleasure to dip into, but also one of the few reference books that can be read cover to cover. Pegg’s encyclopaedic structure mirrors the cut-up, mix-and-match nature of Bowie’s own career, making one reconsider the very notion of a conventional rock biography." – Times Literary Supplement
“An indispensable guide for all serious collectors of David Bowie’s music.” - BowieNet
“Absolutely thorough, absolutely definitive and absolutely entertaining.” BBC Radio 5 Live

From the Publisher
The career of David Bowie has been one of the most colorful and intriguing in modern rock history. In The Complete David Bowie, Nicholas Pegg chronicles the star’s every move—from his first appearance as balladeer Davy Jones in the 60s, and his spectacular, gender–bending turn in the 70s as Ziggy Stardust, to his starring roles in films like The Man Who Fell to Earth and The Hunger. This definitive reference also includes a detailed production history and an analysis of all Bowie’s albums, including 2003’s Reality; hundreds of entries with facts and anecdotes about all his songs, plus unreleased rarities; and set lists and histories of every live show.
