Album artwork for The Mick Ronson Story: Turn and Face the Strange by Rupert Creed and Garry Burnett

This book explores Mick Ronson’s life and career with his family, friends, fellow musicians and fans. ‘This is a lovingly crafted tribute to his life and his music.’ Marc Riley, BBC Radio 6 Music

For devotees of David Bowie, and Mick Ronson – the Spider from Hull – who lit up the fabulous Ziggy Stardust shows with his dazzling guitar playing and powerful stage presence. This is Mick Ronson’s story. And it begins in his home-town of Hull.

With unique material and exclusive interviews with fellow musicians, friends and family and those who knew him.

A long overdue biography of guitarist, songwriter, arranger, producer and musician Mick Ronson. Most famous for his critical contribution to David Bowie’s spectacular live band, studio albums including Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Aladdin Sane. Mick also helped produce Lou Reed’s Transformer, released five solo studio albums, performing in bands with Ian Hunter, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan as well as working with many other musicians.

This is an authentic story of a boy from a council estate from Hull who achieved international rock god status. Set in a time of seismic social change, with colliding cultures of personal and community identity, image and fashion, gender roles and sexual freedom.
