April 2013

David Bowie
The Man Who Changed The World

In his new book “David Bowie: The Man Who Changed The World”, author Wim Hendrikse – a Bowie-fan from the beginning – has succeeded in sketching a reliable and, in particular, up-to-date outline of the life of David Bowie, King of Glitter Rock and trendsetter of the seventies. It is the most complete, best researched and best balanced book about David Bowie that has ever been written.
In this biography Wim Hendrikse delves into the amazing life and career of the glam rock superstar. Bowie’s life and career are characterized by drugs, sex, very high peaks, deep lows and the exploitation of his androgynous looks. As a song writer, singer, actor, performer and as an artist Bowie is regarded as one of the most influential pop musicians ever. He is best known for his bizarre and decadent bisexual behaviour.
