Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story Celebrates One of Rock’s Most Underappreciated Guitarists

Mick Ronson is often recalled as the pioneering guitarist who helped David Bowie formulate the sound of glam-rock on albums like The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

But, he was also an all-around gifted multi-instrumentalist who collaborated with Ian Hunter, performed with Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, produced Morrissey, and salvaged “Jack & Diane” from the scrapheap, turning it into John Mellencamp’s 1982 breakout hit.

Narrated by Bowie, The Mick Ronson Story celebrates Ronno’s diverse career, including his acclaimed solo albums and his life, which ended, all too soon, from liver cancer in 1993.
