Urban Myths: Bolan and Bowie

A dramatisation of the first time David Bowie met Marc Bolan.

Part of Sky Arts ‘Urban Myths’ strand, this film recounts the colourful first meeting of two struggling teenage musicians, Davie Jones (later Bowie) and Mark Feld (who became Bolan). David first met Mark when they were summoned to their manager Les Conn's office in Denmark Street one morning and, in lieu of them making him any actual money by selling any records, asked to repaint his office. This is When Bowie met Bolan.
