Just came across this video of a Bowie concert in June 1972. Your opinions please...at precisely 1:00, there is a glimpse of a bemused young man...could that be Brian?

I think they saw Bowie (after his 'transormation' into Ziggy) at Aylesbury Friars: I seem to remember that from somewhere...

It could be Brian. r it could be any of other of the tens of thousands of English youngsters whose jaw would at the time look like that.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

It's not him. Jaw's a bit much too wide to be Brian's, I think.

This was around the time Roger & Freddie drove up to see Bowie. It's possible Brian was around, although as this chap has not got a notepad jotting down all of Mick Ronson's licks it's probably not him. LOLZ.

Bowie had played at Imperial College a couple of months before. I should imagine that would be a better gig to check the crowd footage for. Although in the film (shot for French TV) no audience is seen.

The guys were big Bowie fans around that time, so anything is possible..
