Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story

This film by Jon Brewer celebrates the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson, one of rock’n’roll’s most influential guitarists.

As a member of David Bowie’s backing band The Spiders From Mars in the early 1970s, Ronson contributed to some of the most iconic compositions, lyrics and recordings in contemporary music and helped shape Bowie’s career.

Ronson went on to record several solo albums and also earned a reputation as a sought-after session musician who played with Ian Hunter, Lou Reed and Morrissey, and toured with Bob Dylan and Van Morrison.
