NME - David Bowie Special Collectors’ Magazine
Bowie's back, and bigger than ever! 'The Next Day' is his first Number One album in 20 years, there's been a huge scramble for tickets to his V&A exhibition and his cultural currency has never been higher, so what better time to celebrate his legend and legacy with a one-off magazine revisiting all of the music, the myths, the movies and the mayhem of The Man Who Owned The World?
Raiding the NME archive for the most thrilling, colourful and revealing interviews from Ziggy to Berlin and beyond, we reassess every album, remember the most extravagant tours, delve into the most scandalous myths and rate his most memorable screen appearances. PLUS from Noel to Radiohead, rock's biggest stars discuss Bowie's influence, the V&A exhibition raided for its most stunning shots and we argue why Tin Machine were actually brilliant. Wham, bam, thank you glam!
