As one of the most intimate and candid memoirs of David Bowie, David Bowie: Rock ‘n’ Roll with Me is an incredible story, a rare insight into a friendship where two men shared their love for music from the moment they met to their final goodbyes. I showed the negative of this shot to the legendary printer Robin Bell, he said he’d see what he could do.Schooldays behind them, David Jones metamorphosed into David Bowie while Geoff worked at a string of clothes boutiques and even as a runner and occasional singer for the BBC Radio One DJ Emperor Rosko. And now David Bowie: Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me is out in the world — perhaps the closest you’ll get to being on tour with Bowie in that era without a time machine and a backstage pass. He helped record six albums, including Pin Ups, Diamond Dogs, Young Americans - at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia - and, of course, Station To Station. The book contains nearly 150 photos taken by MacCormack throughout the years, some never seen before: from touring the Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane shows and sailing to New York on a world tour, to Bowie's first major film The Man Who Fell to Earth and the recording of Station to Station and his Thin White Duke persona.

Nevertheless I stayed with him for another two years, travelling and working on other tours - including Diamond Dogs and Young Americans - and six albums from Aladdin Sane to Station to Station.

Bowie wearing only his underwear while playing to adoring fans in Tokyo, meeting Russian villagers after stepping off the Trans-Siberian Railway or the filming The Man Who Fell to Earth in New Mexico… McCormack's years with Bowie seem to have been "the freakiest show" - but it's clear that he had the time of his life. Beginning at Burnt Ash Primary school in the mid-1950s, where Bowie and MacCormack discovered their passion for music to touring the Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane shows and sailing to New York on a world tour, to Bowie’s first major film The Man Who Fell to Earth and the recording of Station to Station, MacCormack was there touring, recording, and traveling with the man who changed rock music. This richly illustrated work documents the three years MacCormack spent writing, recording, performing, living and travelling with Bowie.Apart from Mike Garson - who was already installed on piano and mellotron - I was one of four new recruits. Images are accompanied by personal essays and reflections about working with Bowie, from memories of the earliest days at the Arts Lab in Beckenham to detailed accounts of life on tour. His engaging story will chronicle the author’s childhood in Bromley where he met David at the age of eight, quickly forming a bond over their mutual love of music – especially the brand new sounds coming from America in the 1950s. Photography was purely a hobby for me for about five minutes – it just happened to be the right five minutes. That’s thousands of images and articles, documenting the history of the medium of photography and its evolution during the last decades, through a unique daily journal.

The Collection has been re-scanned (drum) to a high standard, using Gallery quality archival giclee prints on Hahnemuhle Photorag Pearl 320gsm 100% cotton.
