"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
Bowie's Piano Man is based on author Clifford Slapper's 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. 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.
