With exclusive voice-over contributions from David Bowie, this film is a celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson, a rock hero virtually uncelebrated despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever.
Hitting select theaters in a handful of cities today is Beside Bowie, the new documentary on Mick Ronson. Ronson’s name may not ring a bell but the work he created over the years will certainly strike a chord with virtually everyone on the planet. Ronson was a humble guitarist from Hull, England that would end forging a career-long association with the iconic David Bowie. Throughout his career, Ronson would also team up with the likes of Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter, Lulu, Lou Reed, Morrissey and John Mellencamp.
Sadly in 1993, while working on a solo album, Ronson passed away before receiving the recognition he so richly deserved or before taking that final bow. Now, with unprecedented access to archival backstage footage – never before released – and iconic imagery from superstar photographer Mick Rock, this fascinating and at times controversial special reveals the ultimate authentic chronicle of the career of a cornerstone of rock.
Producer and director Jon Brewer commented, “Both Mick Ronson and David Bowie together were the ultimate duo. They performed and recorded like magicians and created masterpieces that will live on forever.”
Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story is distributed in the US by MVD Entertainment Group via Blu-ray + DVD, transactional video on demand, and download to own rights from international distributor Content Media following the Parade Deck Films theatrical release.
