ACC Art Books to publish a memoir from Geoff MacCormack, one of David Bowie’s closest friends of sixty years.

Geoff MacCormack, singer, songwriter and producer, has signed with ACC Art Books to publish his memoir due for publication in Spring 2023.  His engaging story chronicles the authors childhood in Bromley, meeting David at aged 8, and forming a bond over their mutual love of music – especially the brand new sounds coming from America in the 1950s.  Years later, MacCormack writes, his old school pal “phoned him and urged him to work with him”.  Within weeks, MacCormack was sailing to New York with David Bowie.

James Smith, Publisher of ACC Art Books, noted “this unique story, told with humour and incredible insight, details the authors adventures on-and-off the road with David Bowie – his childhood friend.  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 are.”

Alongside his memories, MacCormack will also open his archive of photography from his travels, and feature images of David Bowie throughout.  His recent exhibition of his work at the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, “Rock ‘n’ Roll with Me; 73-76” was both a critical and commercial success with plans to travel the exhibition in the works.

“Just suppose your Brilliant Pal said ‘will you join my band (The Spiders from Mars) and come on tour?  And then, just suppose, your Brilliant Pal said, ‘would you mind being a dog (Diamond)’.  That’s what happened to me. I am very happy to be working with the team at ACC, who will not only publish my words but also my photos with great care. I’m excited to share my memories with the millions of people who loved my Brilliant Pal.”
