“Closer than others I was your, I was your man”
On November 23rd 1975, David Bowie appeared in a fifteen minute segment for CBS TV’s Cher show.
The Bowie performances commenced with him sporting slicked back hair (Thin White Duke colouring and style) in blue jacket and shirt with grey slacks, singing his first US #1 single, Fame, which had peaked a couple of months earlier in September.
Fame was followed by a moving rendition of Can You Hear Me, performed as a duet with Cher. Both Fame and Can You Hear Me were live vocals sung over a pre-recorded backing track.
