VIDEO FEED: Passions: The Mick Ronson Story

posted Thursday Mar 22nd, 2018

With all the well deserved hype about the Beside Bowie documentary, (just released on Hulu) don’t overlook another gem. In a 2017 episode of the UK TV series Passions, Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet visits Ronson/Bowie historical sites, while interviewing Bowie fans and associates. Kemp’s eloquent and wonderfully melodramatic presentation is sometimes funny, in its painfully sincere deification of his hero. When interviewing John Cambridge of pre-Bowie band The Rats, I was floored to hear clips of another early 70’s heavy metal project called merely Ronno.

Fitting, because Ronno is some trademark Mick Ronson balls out rock ‘n’ roll! What, you’re still reading this, what the hell…start watching!
