    Had a great day out, learned a lot about the history of David Bowie and the Rock ‘n Roll era in the 60’s & 70’s. Grant was absolutely knowledgeable and passionate and knew everything there was to know about David Bowie and others musicians he was involved with at the time. It was interesting to hear about who was who in those days and the relationships between Bolan, Elton John and Tony Visconti. Definitely 5 star tour but I’d say 10 stars to Grant.
