        Bowie's Piano Man is the revised and updated paperback edition of the biography of Mike Garson - David Bowie's pianist and most prolific band member who played on dozens of Bowie albums. Now available for purchase - the book is signed personally by Mike and comes with his acclaimed Bowie Variations album and documentary DVD - all signed. 

        The book, written by Clifford Slapper, is a revised and updated paperback edition with six new chapters and is based on in-depth long conversations with Garson as well as with many of those he has worked with, such as Tony Visconti, Earl Slick, Trent Reznor, Gail Ann Dorsey, Gerry Leonard, Maggi Ronson and many more.

        Also featured are over 50 photographs, many never seen before, of Garson with Bowie and others. The book shines a spotlight on one of the musicians who contributed hugely, though often without full recognition until now, to modern musical history, especially through helping to mold the sound of Bowie's classic albums such as "Aladdin Sane." 

        Having played the Bowie songbook in concert countless times, Mike Garson always had the ambition to record his own original variations on his well-known themes and this has now come to fruition with his Bowie Variations CD. Thanks to advanced digital technology, Garson was able to create several exciting sonic overlays with an audiophile approach to recording.

        Filmed over a period of six years, the Mike Garson and his 88 Friends documentary on DVD offers a portrait of composer and pianist Mike Garson serves as both a tribute and a learning experience. Interspersed with anecdotes and advice from the trenches, Garson captivates the viewer, demonstrating his secrets as a world-class musician.

        If you'd like Mike to personalize your book, please reply to your order confirmation email upon purchase.

        "A welcome tribute to a great musician." - MOJO

        “Musicology of the highest order. Much more than a simple account of one man’s life. It is almost a history of the piano in popular music. Like Garson’s thrillingly exquisite improvised solo on “Aladdin Sane,” Bowie’s Piano Man takes you on a journey without coordinates. Brilliant!” - Tribune Magazine

        “Quite simply it's a great book: engaging, inspiring and entertaining about one of the greatest pianists of our times." - Blues And Soul Magazine
