Welcome to "the young american" - a website dedicated to the activities of David Bowie in America during 1974. This site is now 5 years old, having been first launched in January 2002. It was my intention then - as it still is now - to piece together all that is known about the period to provide a factual account of a very important time in our hero's illustrious career.


I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the site so far. Through these contributions we have learnt so much more about the period. For example, we now have a very clear understanding of the actual tour dates - an area which was previously shrouded in mystery.


On a personal front, I have made lots of new friends through the site and I am truly grateful to everybody who has contacted me with their comments or has sent me information for it.


Please continue to visit and contribute to itů there is still so much more to learn about the Year of the Diamond Dogs.
