He does however make a valid point that not everyone likes all of Bowie's phases, but to dismiss Outside as a dull Eno collaboration and to favour the rather sterile Stage over the raw emotion of David Live is questionable.
I rather lost interest after he devoted a disproportionate amount of time to Space Oddity and raved on inexplicably about the German novelty hit Major Tom (Coming Home).
I'm sure to some folks this book is . For me it's not
My love and indeed obsession with music came (like most) in my teen years and it was then that I discovered Bowie the musician not Jareth the Goblin King. Bowie wasn’t and still isn’t someone that you can listen to passively. His music dictates that you give him your full attention. Likewise this is what I gave to Rob Sheffield when I read his book On Bowie. The book was written in light of Bowie’s death in January and released a few months after and what I loved about it is that the biography (I feel weird calling it this) mixes moments from David Bowie’s life and shows the resonance that Bowie had on his audience. How what he did and how he did it impacted people. That is what, in my humble opinion, makes Rob Sheffield’s writing really exciting. You see it in his previous books and you definitely see it in On Bowie. It is the book that makes you shout “Yes! You get it. That is exactly how I feel.”
If you love Bowie then read On Bowie. If you love music then read On Bowie. And if you love it when an author just gets it then read On Bowie.
On Bowie by Rob Sheffield is available now.
