Haddon Hall
Haddon Hall: When David Invented Bowie | Nejib
4 posts | 1 read | 12 to read
Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent for reinvention. But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from David to Bowie. In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie move into Haddon Hall, a sprawling Victorian villa in the London suburbs. Part commune, part creative hub, the house becomes home to a community of musicians, hippies, and hangers-on. As egos clash and parties get out of hand, David keeps writing: Changes, Kooks, Life on Mars songs that will propel him to global fame. Charting Bowie s personal life, the development of his music, and the transformation of his image, "Haddon Hall" is an evocative portrait of a young artist presiding over a musical revolution."

It‘s a so-so because I just don‘t get graphic novels, my brain obviously just thinks in words. Hubby says this is a good one and he reads a lot of them! At least it was about Bowie.

CherylDeFranceschi @Jenbug68 Agreed! So happy our graphic novel buyer knows me so well- not sure how this would cross my radar otherwise. And, it's gorgeous! 3y
