Exposure Musical To Feature Bowie Photo?

Fame, What's your name?

Possibly the vaguest headline I've ever written, however...Great full-page picture in the Spectrum section of the Sunday Times Magazine, accompanied by the text below...

Of course, Bowie fans worth their salt will know that the 'factual' information provided above isn't quite right: "David Bowie stares blankly into Michael Ochs’s lens on a TV chat show in 1974."

~ That's not a blank stare, it's a sweet smile
~ It's not Michael Ochs’s lens...Neal Preston took the picture
~ The TV chat show was in fact Good Morning America wherein David was interviewed by Rona Barrett for a live broadcast on ABC
~ It was actually February 1976, not 1974

Neal Preston took many great photos of David between 1973 and 1976...and possibly more beyond that I'm not aware of.

Though I've seen at least a dozen stills from this recording, I have to admit that this is one TV appearance I don't think I've ever seen...anybody out there have a tape of it?

Almost forgot, the reason the magazine reprinted this picture was to publicise the upcoming Exposure musical, which you can learn more about here.
