I was a bit disappointed in that in a documentary about David Bowie none of his music featured !!! That's what let me down a lot. Interesting interviews nethertheless.
Only true legends of rock music are known by one word. As with ‘Elvis’ everyone knows the name of the most creative and influential rock artist of all time: BOWIE. Whereas other artists remained constant in appearance, or gradually evolved their musical style, Bowie was in a state of permanent revolution: constantly re-inventing his persona and sound. From the 1960’s mixture of psychedelia meets fantasy for Space Oddity, through to the ground-breaking, Ziggy Stardust, Bowie defied any label that the music industry tried to place on him. From Thin White Duke to soulful rocker; music, art, fashion and sexuality were Bowie's playthings - he was truly an artistic chameleon. Bowie was born David Jones in January 1947 but reinvented himself as David Bowie, in 1966. For the next fifty years Bowie would carve out one of the most individual careers in music, film and the arts. Featuring contributions from those who collaborated with him and archive interviews with the great man himself, BOWIE is a fascinating exploration of the life and inspiration of a true rock and roll icon who inspired a whole generation to become heroes.
