Book Review: Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie by Angela Bowie
Well Angie let me down. What I had hoped to be a deep insight into the life of David Bowie, turned out to be a dull boring bitchfest about how she should have gotten more attention.
Now don't get me wrong there were some interesting anecdotes and some talk about the whole David Bowie music scene. But Angie just seemed to want to flaunt all the affairs she had and then gripe about how David had so many affairs. The old pot and kettle simile fits here. She also went on to talk about the affairs between her and Mick Jagger and David and Mick. Seems either everyone wanted David or everyone wanted Mick, actually she talks like everyone wanted her.
I found the book very dull and hard to put up with the non-stop ego boosting and bitching. Don't bother with this one.
If you do know of a good biography on David Bowie, let me know.
