Music journalist Lesley-Ann Jones knew David Bowie from the 1960s, when he was still Davy Jones, a young musician struggling to find success. Here she traces the epic journey of the boy from Bromley as he becomes one of the most influential figures in popular music. From interviews with numerous friends and associates as well as Bowie himself, she explores his rebellious nature, his many sources of inspiration and creativity, and his complex, intense personality. Along the way we discover Bowie's family background, the inspiration behind the creation of Ziggy Stardust, and how he came back from a near fatal drug addiction. Jones also revisits Bowie's tragic relationship with his brother and his bond with T-Rex front man Marc Bolan.

"This is a personal friendship in writing. The knowledge divulged here is an endearing and powerful tale of a man who conquered the entire entertainment industry with his creative force."—Variety
