Bowie's Piano Man - Signed Biography

  • $34.99


Bowie's Piano Man is the biography of Mike Garson - David Bowie's pianist and most prolific band member who played on 19 Bowie albums.

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 and 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."

Now available for purchase - the book is signed personally by Mike.

"The must have book in this field." - Ricky Gervais

"Wonderful addition to the Bowie bibliography... a class book for a class act." - Classic Pop Magazine 

"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
