David Bowie’s death on January 10, 2016 stunned the music world just as Prince’s death three months later would. With a career that spanned more than a half-century his impact was enormous. Australian music historian and graphic designer Roger Griffin has authored a curiously creative book that examines Bowie’s life in detail during the 1970s (his “Golden Years”).
Prior to its release (today) in the U.S. this book was published overseas, including in Australia and the U.K. Because it has not yet been widely reviewed we will be adding relevant third-party reviews as they become available.
