Hallo Spaceboy: The Rebirth Of David Bowie (Book ECW)


While most biographies of David Bowie focus on the enigmatic glam era of Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity or the Berlin period with albums of Low, Heroes, and Lodger, Thompson’s book examines the iconic artist’s redemption from premature blandness.
Hallo Spaceboy serves as an excellent companion to his first critically acclaimed Bowie bio, Moonage Daydream. While Bowie pursued appearing in children’s films such as Jim Henson’s fantasy, Labyrinth, he had recently issued relatively safe albums such as Let’s Dance and Tonight. Thompson’s second latest volume starts with the Bowie’s creative nadir of 1987’s Never Let Me Down and the Vegas-tinged accompanying tour. However, the author makes the argument that Bowie eventually found his muse (perhaps when he reacquainted himself with Brian Eno, the producer of the Berlin trilogy) beginning with Outside and continuing with other works. Thompson also described Bowie’s successful ability to balance a prolific career with a blissful domestic life married to supermodel, Iman. The book’s title draws from the name of a track on the album. As an artist who has probably reinvented himself more than anyone else in rock’s relatively brief history, David Bowie’s transformation from bland pop auteur heading for extinction into a cutting edge force to be reckoned with and revered into well into his sixth decade.
