What was it like to stand beside Bowie, glammed up as a Spider from Mars? A new doco highlights the incredible life of guitarist Mick Ronson.
Around three years before his departure Bowie sat down with a tape recorder, reliving his memories of longtime friend and lead guitarist Ronson. Suzi Ronson, Mick’s widow, was given these tapes as a form of narration for the film she wanted to make, but never could.
Suzi soon approached filmmaker Jon Brewer B.B. King: The Life of Riley, Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark) with the tapes, and thus Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story was birthed.
Watch the trailer below.
Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story is currently streaming on Hulu.
