He gained fame in the late 60’s with the smash hit Space Oddity. His rise to stardom was gradual but inevitable.His passion, for music, has allowed him to sell over 140 million albums worldwide. In 1996, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. David Bowie was one of the hardest working men in show business. This is the true story of how a boy, from South London, persevered and changed music forever. Basically this “documentary” is broken up into 3 different raw footage interviews, one from 1996 probably raw interview footage from MTV. Another from the 70’s (US TV ’The Dick Cavett Show’ 11/05/74: Episode No.1539, Season No.7.), One from 1987 (Glass Spiders Period). All are great and candid just straight conversation with the man himself. (60:25)
