1969, David Bowie releases ‘Space Oddity” in the UK. This is the original video from 1969.
1971, The Bruce Springsteen Band opened for Humble Pie at the Sunshine Inn, Asbury Park in New Jersey. After the show an impressed Peter Frampton from Humble Pie, tells Springsteen and the band he’d like to have them open for them on a national basis. Frampton also said he would be happy to get the band an audition with his record label, A & M Records. For no logical reason Springsteen’s manager Tinker West declined both offers on the spot.

The Bowie video is hilarious – if you didn’t recognize him you would think it was a bunch of high school students doing an on the cheap version video of the song!
