About this deal

Alongside his memories, MacCormack opens up his archive of photography, sharing over 150 Rare and Never Before Seen Images of his adventures with the music legend.

For the next three years Geoff was by Bowie's side, travelling through Japan, across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Express, through Paris and Rome, and all over the US. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.David Bowie: Rock ‘n’ Roll with Me is Geoff MacCormack’s remarkable photographic memoir, charting his lifelong friendship with David Bowie. Illustrated with personal and previously unpublished photographs, this limited edition book offers a rare glimpse into life with music's greatest chameleon. 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. We’re incredibly proud to be publishing Geoff’s book and know fans, old and new, will be as enthralled with his book as we all are.

A must for all Bowie fans, it sheds a rare insight into a friendship where two men shared their love for music from the moment they met to their final goodbyes. After three years of touring, recording and travelling with Bowie, MacCormack started an award winning (Gold Clio, Ivor Novello) music production partnership with Simon Goldenberg who he met, coincidentally, in The Three Tuns pub, home of Bowie’s earlier ‘Arts Lab’. 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. When David asked Geoff to join his band as a backing singer and percussionist, he was already well on the way to superstardom.

The album Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars had conquered the UK charts six months previously in June of 1972. Images bring MacCormack's stories to life, showing the places he and Bowie inhabited, the people they met and the adventures they shared. 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’.
