Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story  


From Emperor Media Ltd. and acclaimed producer/director Jon Brewer, with exclusive voice over contributions from David Bowie, this feature documentary is an unprecedented celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson – a rock hero virtually unknown despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever.

Despite his contributions and work with Morrissey, Lou Reed on ‘Transformer’, Ian Hunter and Mott the Hoople, Bob Dylan and most notably David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars, it was really Mick Ronson’s dynamic support, contribution, and co-creation of this era in music as well as to the expansive and multi-faceted career of David Bowie that this film explores, and at times, exposes. Featuring exclusive access to archives never seen before.
