"Golden Years" on 'Soul Train' (1975)
It must have looked like a historic occasion – the whitest man ever invited onto Soul Train. First Bowie mutters at the floor until a worried-looking Don Cornelius says, "OK, David, I think we have to move on." Then he twitches his way through "Golden Years," even though he can't remember the words. "I hadn't bothered to learn it," Bowie confessed later.
