A Graphic Novel Based on the Years Before David Became Bowie

David Bowie spent the first seven years of his music career trying to find an approach that would click with audiences. Between 1964 and 1971, he tried on a variety of guises: sax player, folksinger, song-and-dance man, even a friggin’ mime, fer gawd’s sake. Much of that time was spent living at a place called Haddon Hall.

Bowie’s experiences during those years have been turned into a graphic novel entitled Haddon Hall: When David Invented Bowie. Get the full story at Boing Boing.
