I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I thought, 'Fuck that. I want to be a superhuman.I felt I really wanted to back off from music completely and just work within the visual arts in some way. I started painting quite passionately at that time.I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me.Frankly, I mean, sometimes the interpretations I've seen on some of the songs that I've written are a lot more interesting than the input that I put in.I'm always amazed that people take what I say seriously. I don't even take what I am seriously.I'm not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I'm living on.But I'm pretty good with collaborative thinking. I work well with other people.

No artist offered a more incisive and accurate portrait of the troubled landscape of the 1970s than David Bowie. Cultural historian Peter Doggett explores the rich heritage of Bowie's most productive and inspired decade, and traces the way in which his music reflected and influenced the world around him. From 'Space Oddity', his dark vision of mankind's voyage into the unknown terrain of space, to the Scary Monsters album, Doggett examines in detail Bowie's audacious creation of an 'alien' rock star, Ziggy Stardust, and his increasingly perilous explorations of the nature of identity and the meaning of fame. Mixing brilliant musical critique with biographical insight and acute cultural analysis, The Man Who Sold The World is a unique study of a major artist and his times.

Bowie is best known for his bizarre and decadent unisexual and bisexual behaviour. His life and career tell a story of drugs, sex, very high peaks and deep lows and the exploitation of his androgynous looks. The result of almost forty years of research. The most complete and best balanced book about David Bowie that has ever been written.

David Bowie: Critical Perspectives examines in detail the many layers of one of the most intriguing and influential icons in popular culture. This interdisciplinary book brings together established and emerging scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds, including musicology, sociology, art history, literary theory, philosophy, politics, film studies and media studies.
