Reviews

  • "The best music book I have ever read, dislodging Revolution in the Head and England's Dreaming. Superb in every way."

    Matthew d'Ancona
  • "His blow-by-blow account of the performance is breathless in its fan-boy enthusiasm and much of the rest of When Ziggy Played Guitar is rooted in its personal impressions. “The by-product of Ziggy’s success was the validation of identity, our identity”, Jones writes, and it’s hard not to be moved by his hero worship."

    New Statesman
  • "Jones is a wonderfully fluent writer, with a terrific knack for atmospheric phrasemaking, period detail and juicy factoids."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Dylan Jones’s account of David Bowie’s rise to superstardom. We’ll eat up anything about the greatest pop star who ever walked this planet."

    The Herald Magazine
  • "This excellent book looks at the background to that memorable TV event, and its enduring legacy."
