Tony Visconti: The Autobiography: Bowie, Bolan and the Brooklyn Boy
Tony Visconti: The Autobiography: Bowie, Bolan and the Brooklyn Boy
Price: 2.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Bowie, Bolan and the Brooklyn Boy. Not quite there yet., 14 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fairly good read. Not enough detail though. You'd think that there would be a lot more insight into the people tony has worked with. A lot more anecdote and less detail about sound proofing. Don't really care how he got the right sound just wanted to know more about him and Bowie, some nice little bits of info but just not enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ziggyology, 20 July 2013

This review is from: Ziggyology (Kindle Edition)
What an informative book! I learnt about Beethoven, Jules Verne, Holst, H.G.Wells and, of course, lots about what happened in 1972/1973 in the universe of Ziggy Stardust. I became a fan when I first saw the cover of Alladin Sane and have been a Bowiephile ever since. I've read a lot about him, this book is probably the best. So interesting and entertaining. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrecking Ball, Bruce Springsteen., 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember the NME headlines in 1975 about Bruce being the Future of Rock and Roll. It said the same thing on the Posters in the London underground. Was he? Make your own mind up. For so many people he was. I'm one of them. Here he is 38 years later, still breaking new ground as well as revitalising the old. What a star, what a man, what a band, what an Album! Buy it it is truly wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ian McCulloch, Holy Ghosts., 21 Jun 2013

I love this album, but then I'm an Echo and the Bunnymen fan. There are some wonderful moments on this, however, as with most live albums (except for the exceptional Athlete at the Union Chapel) there are moments that seem a bit long drawn out. This is a great album though for all that.

An absolutely beautiful song from a fantastic album. Buy it even if it's just for this track, or just buy this beautiful track. Lovely.

It's OK. Not as good as I'd hoped. But then I have always bought Phil Manzanera albums on spec. Some are brilliant some are good. This one is good.

As good as it has always been. I love this song, I love the Pogues and hearing Kirsty McColl makes me cry again. Much loved much missed. Always loved.

Yeah it's Planty doing what he did in the 80's. I had this album on cassette tape back in the day. For some reason I thought it had 29 Palms on it, which was the only reason I bought it. Wrong. Hence it's just Okay. I was never a Led Zeppelin fan, but once he stopped screaming like a girl it transpired he could actually sing (that's irony folks). Any way gotta go. Lots of love.

Oh, 16 more words are required. OK it's Bing, he was blinkin' fantastic, this is an all time classic. What more needs to be said?
