David Bowie. Starman & Jagger by Marc Spitz, Paul Trynka PDF

By Marc Spitz, Paul Trynka

«Este es un libro esencial para vislumbrar algo más de cerca el mito Jagger, el mito Stones.» Juan Puchades

Un examen ecuánime sin precedentes de una de las figuras más celebradas e incomprendidas de los angeles historia del rock and roll.

El conocido periodista musical Marc Spitz ha explorado un icono cultural cuya contribución, imagen e influencia en nuestra cultura han sido insondables, y ha conseguido reflejar en profundidad una visión del legado de Mick Jagger. Jagger se construye como un fascinante documental en una serie de episodios que marcan los hitos de una vida de estrella, desde su infancia en una familia de clase media en el Londres de después de l. a. Segunda Guerra Mundial hasta los angeles adquisición del estatus nobiliario de sir Mick, un viejo y glorioso hombre de Estado del rock.

A través de un retrato mucho más completo que las biografías previamente publicadas, esta biografía profundiza en l. a. multiplicidad de roles incorporados por Jagger: liberador sexual, provocador de los medios, estrella del cine independiente, y, por si fuera poco, también empresario taimado con un entusiasmo libertino por mujeres mucho más jóvenes que él.

Este Jagger es tan inspirado, provocativo y polifacético como el mismo artista.

«Uno sabe que nunca hay nada definitivo en contemporáneos pero esta biografía es excelente y cultiva tanto el mito como anti-mito. Minucioso y encomiable trabajo de entrevista y diagnóstico sobre el Mesías Marciano que siempre nos ha ofrecido David Jones» Carlos Zanón

Conocido en todo el mundo como el gran “camaleón” de los angeles música, su brillante creatividad y constante reinvención le han convertido en un icono de nuestro tiempo.

Basada en cientos de entrevistas a amigos y detractores, ex amantes y compañeros de profesión, Starman revela cómo Bowie construyó su música y a sí mismo. Además, trata l. a. vida y trayectorias profesionales de muchas otras figuras relevantes del mundo de l. a. música que se cruzan en l. a. vida de Bowie como Iggy Pop, Lou Reed o Brian Eno.

True British roast beef'. As a pair they must have looked exceptionally attractive. D. had contrived to see something of him in Rome and then to have her family leave her alone with him on Capri. Before rejoining her parents in Venice, she and Aldington went to Naples, and two of her autobiographical notes are very informative.

Not surprisingly, Lowell entered somewhat into the Egoist picture. Pound had attempted to interest her in financing the magazine, but she came forward instead with her idea for a series of Imagist anthologies. Once Pound was at loggerheads with her he attempted to run an anti-Lowell article in the Egoist, but Aldington intercepted it, telling Harriet Weaver that if it were published he would resign. Clearly he had chosen sides in the contretemps, and now his friendship with Lowell developed by means of a steady trans-Atlantic correspondence, though he avoided complete alienation from Pound.

Aldington's response to her was not sceptical, as William Carlos Williams' was, when she ran, danced and soaked in the New Jersey rain, invoking: ' Come, beautiful rain! Beautiful rain, welcomelt?
