Start here with Mick ripping through "Moonage daydream". This is awesome.

One of the first bootlegs I ever got was Bowie 1972 Santa Monica Civic Center, which was eventually officially released. What a great show - this song and "Width of a Circle" and "Waiting for the Man" are big standouts. GREAT guitar tone.

Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture is a GREAT DVD documentation of The Spiders From Mars band with Bowie and Ronson. Ronson died of liver cancer in 1993 at age 46. Another great one gone way too young.

The solo on the first version of Prettiest star from 1970 is Marc Bolan.

Ronson was a fantastic guitarist but also a great producer with Ian Hunter's first solo album and Lou Reed's Transformer been excellent.
What direction Bowie would of gone in if they had stayed together is anybody's guess.Ronson made one of his last public appearance with Bowie at the F Mercury tribute concert at Wembley Staduim in 1992 playing on Heroes(a song originally recorded with Robert Fripp)and he sounded just great.

That was a great version of Heroes I loved the All The Young Dudes from this tribute, also, where Ian Hunter joined Mick again (with David, Queen, and co)

Mick Ronson played some great guitar... gone too soon...

He was the co-arranger with Bowie for Hunky Dory, Ziggy, and Aladinsane

Check out the Ian Hunter Live Album "Welcome to the Club" , Rono playing some smoking lead all over that record.

Saw Mick with Bowie in Edinburgh on both the Ziggy tour and Aladdin Sane. Lifetime highlights for me, but the night I saw him touring Slaughter, his first solo record and met him outside the Odeon in Clerk St will always be with me

You got that right mister

I was lucky to meet and see Ronno many times with Ian Hunter and Sandy Dillion though only once with Bowie and that was the F Mercury show.I once saw him working the mixing desk for a band called Slaughter and the dogs who he was producing when they played a pub called the Black Tulip in Dewsbury West Yorkshire their must of been less than 50 people present.
