Combining footage from interviews with the late great David Bowie and contributions from those who knew him personally, this documentary celebrates the illustrious life of one of the greatest artists to ever grace the stage.
Great movie, but it never mentioned Stevie Ray Vaughn. Why?
Great movie, but it never mentioned the fact that Stevie Ray Vaughn (all time Texas blues great)contributed to the writing and played lead guitar on the biggest hits, "Lets Dance" and "China Girl" amongst other songs. Why? In the movie Carlos Alomar seems to take credit for writing the key riff for Lets Dance. Bowie plays the guitar solos in the videos. Any one who knows Vaughn's music can clearly hear it's a S. R. Vaughn opening he learned from one of the "Kings" (Albert, Freddie, or B. B.) Bowie fell in love with Stevie R. Vaughn's playing when he heard him at the Montreux Jazz festival. He convinced him to play on his current album and tour with him to support the album. He also agreed to let Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble open some of the shows. Bowie didn't Honor his agreement and Vaugh walked soon after the tour started.Wasted opportunity for both artist.
