This week, Mary Lucia talks about a rock documentary she saw recently and thinks you'll love: Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story.

If you're a David Bowie fan, you'll know Mick Ronson as the glammy, beautiful and delicate guitar player who's standing next to Bowie in the Ziggy Stardust era. A lot of the people in the documentary say Mick Ronson is what made David Bowie a rock star. There's no dispute Bowie would have been a star … but would he have been a rock star without Mick Ronson? It's a thought-provoking question.

Watch the video above to hear more about this documentary. Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story is available on demand on streaming services including Amazon and YouTube.
