[Buch] Spider from Mars: My Life with Bowie

"Spider from Mars: My Life with Bowie" von Woody Woodmansey

[html][/html]Klappentext
A phone call from David Bowie changed Woody's life. It was March 1970 and the twenty-year-old drummer from Driffield was about to take a sensible well-paid factory job. Instead, he took a huge leap of faith and joined Bowie's band, embarking on the adventure of a lifetime.
Woody describes the early years when money was so tight that the band - Woody, Mick Ronson, Tony Visconti and, later, Trevor Bolder - all lived in Bowie's flat. He takes us through the period of intense creativity as they recorded The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Aladdin Sane. He reveals how Bowie transformed himself from a long-haired folk singer into the red-haired rock god Ziggy - and cajoled the Spiders (all down-to-earth Yorkshiremen) into outrageously tight, pastel velour suits and girls' shoes.

They went from playing to forty people in a pub to playing in front of thousands of screaming fans in Britain, the US and Japan. Bowie and the Spiders had achieved their dream, but success came at a price. Insightful and poignant, Spider from Mars lovingly evokes a seminal moment in music history and pays tribute to one of the most outstanding and innovative talents of our time.

My condolences to the Woodmansey family.  Woody told me this morning that his wife, June Woodmansey, had passed away peacefully yesterday. June was a bastion of strength for Woody.  They were childhood sweethearts.  June was on most of our Holy Holy tours, helping not only Woody, but looking after other chores like selling merch. June was a woman of great strength and intelligence and so very caring. She was all set for a career in Fashion years ago when Woody got a job playing drums in The Spiders From Mars.  She is survived by her children and grandchildren.

R.I.P. June :'(
