    This was a fun read I always think of Bowie as such a mysterious figure and its always interesting to go behind the curtain and get a glimpse of how he interacted with the Spiders There were really great photos and so many personal touching accounts from Woody Especially after Bowie s death, discussing the decision to continue to to

    Well, as I stated in an earlier rock book review, if you really want to know the dirt about a band you don t read the story from the band leader, you read a book written by the drummer or the bass player, hence the great book on Ziggy Stardust The Spiders From Mars as told by the drummer I m just panting with anticipation.Well, David Bowie s chameleonlike way

    A fun peek into the world of Bowie from the POV of a likable, average bloke Woodmansey starts with his bleak Northern childhood, which he manages just to make interesting, but soon enough he meets DB and the book really takes off If, like me, the very mention of a Bowie song or outfit or utterance gives you a little thrill, this section is golden Alas, all good things

    The only book specifically written about the Ziggy Stardust days by one of the Spiders From Mars himself.One of the best, most enjoyable biographies I ve ever read.Best drummer name ever too.
