Octopus Books published : We Could Be: Bowie and his Heroes by Tom Hagler with Tony Visconti on October 19, 2021

Tracing the star’s encounters with fellow icons throughout his life, We Could Be offers a new history of Bowie, collecting 300 short stories that together paint a portrait of humour, humility, compassion, tragedy and more besides. He embarrasses himself in front of Lennon and Warhol. He saves the life of Nina Simone. He is hated by Bob Dylan. He teaches Michael Jackson the moonwalk. Individually astonishing, together these stories – including details never before revealed – build a new picture of Bowie, one which shows his vulnerability, his sense of humour, his inner diva.

Exhaustively researched from thousands of sources by BBC reporter and Bowie obsessive Tom Hagler – with the guidance and memories of Bowie’s long-time producer Tony Visconti – We Could Be is fascinating, comic, compelling, and a history of Bowie unlike any that has come before.
