Item description for The Complete David Bowie by Nicholas Pegg...

The Complete David Bowie is the most comprehensive book ever published on one of music's most brilliant, enigmatic, and enduring stars.

The career of David Bowie has been one of the most intriguing in modern rock history. This book chronicles the star's every move---from his first appearance as 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 production history and analysis of all Bowie's albums, hundreds of entries on all his songs, and set lists and histories of every live show.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete David Bowie?

This Review is on Updated Version  Jul 27, 2004
If you are a Bowie fan, this is must reading. Pegg is extremely accurate, and his accounts of the songs Bowie has written and the stories about how the songs were recorded are fascinating. He does a great job tying Bowie's lyrics and music to places and times in Bowie's life, creating a full picture of all that was happening. The accounts of Bowie's tours and albums are accurate and excellent reading, very concise without being wordy or over the top. To get the complete picture of Bowie the entertainer buy this book. I have been a huge fan of Bowie since 1984 and this is the best book ever done on him.
 
It�s a great � encyclopedia!!  Jun 7, 2003
The Complete David Bowie is definitely the best account of David�s work, presenting in the first part of the book each and every song he has ever written or sung and continuing with his albums, singles, movies and live appearances.

Don�t get me wrong, Nicolas Pegg has done a great and painstaking job and the book is a great source if you�re going to write a thesis on Bowie(!), but I wouldn�t call it fun reading, mostly because of its structure, which is similar to that of a dictionary or encyclopedia! However, there are many interesting facts and quotes that will draw your attention, and you get to hear the explanation of many of his songs from David! �e.g. I didn�t know what the theme of Heathen (The Rays) was and why it brought tears to his eyes in one of his concerts�

I think it�s a very good and detailed piece of work, as long as you know what you�re getting!

The Best Book on Bowie for the serious fan  Feb 15, 2003
As a collector of Bowie's music, I found this book invaluable. It filled in some gaps in my understanding of the great ones music and cleverly clarifies the evolution process from one Bowie phase to the next.
The book makes reference to many rare and unreleased songs which is vital to a serious collector.
It is written plainly and factually with no hint of worship.
If you are only concerned with Bowie's music then this is the book for you. Essential.
 
The best  Aug 1, 2002
The best book about David Bowie, in a non-bio way.
The meat of the book are its song by song chapter, and album by album chapter.
The song by song covers every Bowie song, taking about its form and whats its about.
The album by album chapter covers each album in great detail.
The book also has chapters about Bowie's art, acting, videos, ect. In all it has nearly everything you'll need to know about David Bowie's career.
