Here is my second post on why you should or at least could like David Bowie even tough you hate his music. And this is an easy on for all your headbanging metal kids! David Bowie at the age of 17 was the founder of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired men. Respect! Check below what must be the earliest TV interview with David Bowie, here still known under his real name as David Jones.

Another member of this idealistic group of long haired men was Jimmy fucking Page! David Bowie around the same time played in a band  named the Manish Boys which released one single “I pity the fool” in 1965. This ep features Page, at the time a session guitarist, doing the solo. The song also appeared on Bowie his debut LP.  Later on  in 1976 according to an interview Bowie once exorcised his house after Page visited him. He thought that Page brought poltergeist to his house. Later on more about Bowie and the occult…

Check here another early video of Jimmy Page with the Yardbirds:
