About this deal

The book presents photographs and items of memorabilia including tour programmes, tickets, and letters, from the author's personal archives, nearly all of which are being published for the first time. Apart from Mike Garson - who was already installed on piano and mellotron - I was one of four new recruits. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

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. 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. From Station to Station is the story of those three amazing years, together with my previously unpublished photographs of Bowie at work and at play. n' Roll with Me is Geoff MacCormack's remarkable photographic memoir, charting his lifelong friendship with David Bowie.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. David Bowie has signed a facsimile reproduction of an original 'While You Were Out' memo collected from the time he spent on the road, the sea and on the rail with school friend and companion Geoff MacCormack from 1973-76. Original red imitation morocco spine, padded buckram boards, lettering in gilt to spine and in brown to silk label to front cover, illustrated endpapers, all edges gilt. I just took this one shot only and I’m still amazed at how calm he is just before performing a major show to a London audience.

This richly illustrated work documents the three years MacCormack spent writing, recording, performing, living and travelling with Bowie. From Station To Station is the untold story of three years of writing, recording, performing, living and travelling with David Bowie. Geoff MacCormack, David Bowie’s lifelong friend, joined Bowie’s 1973 world tour as an additional back-up vocalist and percussionist, and later as a ‘Diamond Dog’ in '74 and what would be known as ‘The Young Americans Soul Tour’.

Illustrated with personal and previously unpublished photographs, this limited edition book offers a rare glimpse into life with music's greatest chameleon.

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.

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.
