Great moments from that year show Bowie, then known as David Jay, holding a saxophone.

He joined after guitarist Alan Dodds placed an advertisement in a music store in Bromley, South London.

Alan, 75, later a pastor, said: “We knew he had great aspirations and was a great talent. He was destined to go on to bigger and better things.”

One night, David took on the lead vocals when Roger Ferris, now 67, ran over the glass before a gig at Blackheath.

Roger told The Sun: “I like to think that, thanks to my accident, I gave Bowie a great time.”

Stella Gall, 78, is supporting the singer with Ms. Christine, who passed away in 2006. She said: “It’s a wonderful thing to say that I played with him.”

Bowie left shortly after and joined several other bands.
