David Bowie’s first TV appearance was on the show Tonight in 1964. He was talking about his Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men, which was a PR thing set up by his father.
As Metro said:
“As he did through his music, fashion and personality, this was an early example of classic Bowie taking the opportunity to express himself and it reminds us just why he was so iconic worldwide.”
He passed away last year at the age of 69 after a long battle with cancer. He was a pioneer in rock and roll for over five decades, and he will be missed. He was also well-known for a few acting roles including the cult classic Labyrinth. He played the Goblin King who took a baby, and challenged a girl to his labyrinth maze.
He was a very talented and unique artist. We still miss him.
