From Station to Station is the untold story of three years writing, recording, performing, living and travelling with David Bowie.

He stayed by his side through six albums, five tours, one film and numerous adventures.
Illustrated with personal and previously unpublished photographs, this limited edition book offers a rare glimpse into life with music's greatest chameleon.
'Bowie wearing only his underwear while playing to adoring fans in Tokyo, meeting Russian villagers after stepping off the Trans-Siberian Railway or the filming The Man Who Fell to Earth in New Mexico… McCormack's years with Bowie seem to have been "the freakiest show" - but it's clear that he had the time of his life.' BBC News
'During the part of 1973, I had two huge strokes of luck and good fortune. Firstly, while working in a London office I got a call from a childhood friend called David Jones. David Jones was now David Bowie and he invited me to join his band, The Spiders,'The second piece of luck was that David wouldn't fly. Thus we would have to travel the thousands of miles around the world by ship, train and road.''
'We were every inch the freakiest show in town'From Station to Station captures this 'freakiest show' in over 200 photographs and items of memorabilia, including tour programmes, tickets and letters, from the author's personal archives, nearly all of which are being published for the first time.
