Teenagers David and Marc are yet to hit the big time but an afternoon painting their manager's office is the starts of a lifelong friendship between the two, who will eventually be known as music legends David Bowie and Marc Bolan.

When introduced to "David Jones", Marc Bolan says "like Davy Jones from The Monkees?" "Why does everybody say that?" asks Bowie. "Because he's the only David Jones anyone has ever heard of!" says Bolan. This Urban Myth is set in 1964.
