Believe it or not, Bowie was once booed following a performance of “Space Oddity.” Bob Harris remembers, via Classic Rock Magazine:
“I lived with a mobile DJ and he’d double-booked himself, so I took David with me to a college gig. I introduced him, he played Space Oddity and they started slow-handclapping.
“I was so angry I took the microphone and said, ‘Remember this name: David Bowie. He’s going to be a star and you’ll remember the day you booed him off stage.’”
For shame. Maybe this one was a little more well-received?
