SPIDER FROM MARS: My Life with Bowie


SPIDER FROM MARS: My Life with Bowie

WOODY WOODMANSEY    Book Number: 86635    Product format: Hardback

Michael 'Woody' Woodmansey was the drummer for David Bowie's The Spiders from Mars from 1969 to 1973 on the hit albums The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, and Aladdin Sane. Born in Yorkshire in 1951, he is the last surviving member of the Spiders from Mars. In January 2016, the unexpected death of David Bowie rocked the globe. For millions he was an icon celebrated for his music, his film and theatrical roles, his trendsetting influence on fashion and gender norms. No one from his inner circle has told the story of how David Jones, a young folk singer, dancer and aspiring mime artist became one of the most influential artists of our time. With never-before-told stories and more never-before-seen photographs, Woodmansey details the album sessions and how fame eventually consumed Bowie. He recalls the wild tours, eccentric characters and rock 'n' roll excess than eventually drove the band apart. With a foreword by legendary producer Tony Visconti who says about Woody: "His speedy hands were a blur, adapting quickly to the strange juxtaposition between sophisticated chord changes, sudden time signature changes and songs structured like operettas." Told with deadpan Yorkshire humour and grit. 302pp.
