Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell: The Dangerous Glitter of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Lou Reed

OUR PART #  00332756


When Lou Reed and Iggy Pop first met David Bowie in the fall of 1971, Bowie was just another English musician passing through New York City.  Lou was still recovering from the collapse of the Velvet Underground, and Iggy had already been branded a loser...  Yet within two years, they completely changed the face of popular music with a decadent glamour and street-level vibe.  With Bowie producing, Reed's "Transformer" was a worldwide hit, spinning off the sleazy street anthem "Walk on the Wild Side."  Iggy Pop & The Stooges' "Raw Power", mixed by Bowie, provided the mean-spirited, high-octane blueprint for punk.  Bowie boosted elements from both Iggy and Reed to create his gender-bending rock idol Ziggy Stardust.

Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell is the story of this friendship and the incredible productivity and debauchery that emerged from it.  Presented here for the very first time are their stories interwoven in a triple helix of sexuality, glam rock, and drugs – as seen through the eyes of the people who made it happen.
