Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story

“… Of all the early seventies guitar players Mick was probably one of the most influential and profound…” David Bowie

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 multifaceted career of David Bowie that this film explores, and at times, exposes. Featuring exclusive access to archives never seen before.
