    Wildly mixed bag Tremlett was among the first Brit journalists to pay attention to Bowie in the 60s so he had access his interactions wBowie at a far less guarded time resulted in some marvelous interviews and insights He outsources most of the mid 70s to the ZanettaEdwards bio and is fairly useless in the later years this was a multiply revised book last revision around 1996Still worth reading Tremlett is a very winning acerbic personality who acts as a much needed skeptic towards Bowie's colorful episodes ie the Station to Station LA exile era his wonderfully vitriolic bibliography is a hoot

    Is there a decent David Bowie bio out there? Probably not since Bowie was no fool and rarely gave interviews Although he relaxed during the last 15 20 years of his way too short life Bowie was still masterful at twisting an interview to go his way He preferred to let his work speak for him He also did not cooperate with Tremlett for this book published 1996 and OH it shows The book concentrates on Bowie's career up to 1976 The years 1977 1996 are covered sketchily in two brief chaptersIf you are looking for information on Bowie's film work forget it They are given only brief mentions with the exception of Bowie's first film The Man Who Fell to Earth Still worth it for the interviews Tremlett did with Bowie back in 1969 Also a good bibliography to warn Bowie fans which bios to avoid and which ones that are heavy on pictures and light on text There are very very few photos in this book Tremlett is also very good at naming his sources or pointing out what is his own opinion as opposed to factMy library's copy was a paperback that fell apart as I was reading it so I guess it's well loved condition is recommendation enough

    Many of the unauthorized biographies of musicians make the mistake in assuming that readers of them are out to get 'the dirt' on the subject This one really doesn't and that is what makes it very special and definitely one to read

    It's worth reading just to find out whether or not Bowie was really ever low enough to sleep with Mick Jagger NC
