Trivia

Jeff Beck guested on guitar in two songs and was supposed to have been in the film, but asked not to appear in it because he felt his solos and his appearance, looking more like a '60s blues rocker than Bowie and the Spiders' theatrical outfits didn't quite fit the movie. See more »

Bowie Wishes He Was Still This Good
10 April 2003 | by (Commerce, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This is a great concert film. Bowie is in his absolute prime and Pennebaker captures the moment. The film makes you you feel like you are actually at the concert not watching a movie. Bowie has never been better. This film is a moment in time.
