Easy watch on the Bowie climb to fame

This documentary is an easy look back into the life and artistic climb of David Bowie to the level of international fame.

It is informative without giving you too much information. Plus it is interesting in how it shows David Bowie and his focused artistic drive on is music dreams and how he made it all come true.

His personal life is left in the shadows and not dwelled upon.

Very enjoyable documentary about a legend

Quite interesting and heartwarming! I didn't know so much of a lot stuff they talk about which is great and inspirational. I don't know why something like this would get hate, it is very intriguing. Glad this is available on showtime, it's not as bad as some say.

David Bowie: Finding Fame

Finding fame was not easy for David Bowie. It took a while for him to find his own voice.

Until then he borrowed Anthony Newley's with The Laughing Gnome. Bowie was more of a cheeky Cockney, even singing songs from Mary Poppins.

As a Londoner, Bowie also had time to try to imitate The Kinks or sing songs of the style of The Who.

The songs which Bowie released but they did not chart until The Space Oddity. Even then fame was far away.

Bowie was a man who was looking for an image as well as a voice and it seems he was getting there slowly.

The look came courtesy of Ziggy Stardust. Once fame was achieved, he put Ziggy away. It was now David Bowie from now on.

Although this documentary looked at his childhood, his parents seemed to be distant from him as well as each other. It did lack input from close family and childhood friends. I would liked to have heard more of Bowie before he became a singer.

Also Angie Bowie is missing from this documentary. She was instrumental in those early days and getting Bowie and his band to have a certain image and experiment with costumes.
