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.
