First demo of David Bowie's ‘Starman’ auctioned
Music A demo with possibly the first recording of the song ‘Starman’ by David Bowie, on Tuesday, by auction. The tape from 1971 brought nearly 60,000 euros.

Almost fifty years, was the recording of ‘Starman’ by David Bowie weggepakt in the attic. Owner Kevin Hutchinson had the demo in 1971 from his friend, guitarist Mick Ronson,. Ronson was one of the musicians of Bowie, and was number like to practise this with Hutchinson. But that was not under the impression, as he told BBC. “I remember that I am looking forward listened and thought: This is okay.’ I thought: ‘This is fantastic.’ When you're sixteen, you're not easily impressed. Nothing impresses you.”

Nevertheless, he kept the bracelet in a box, which he then in the attic forgot. A conversation with his wife, Claire reminded him, however, to the existence of the demo. “I think they thought I was the strap had not. When someone says: ‘once I did something with Mick Ronson and David Bowie, people think: ‘Yes, make me something wise.’” When the tape reached, he could barely believe it. “The recording is phenomenal. You hear that Mick, the number of never-before-heard, because at the end he wants the tape recorder off, and then says Bowie: "Wait. There is still something more.’”

On the recording are the tracks "Moonage Daydream" and "Hang Onto Yourself". Hutchinson hoped that the demo at least 11.600 euro would bring, but that amount is so greatly transcended. Bowie died in 2016 at age 69.
