David Bowie 1980s

This is Nick Ferrari's lovely story of David Bowie's response when he made up a story about him in The Sun.

The legendary singer died earlier following an 18-month battle with cancer.

That led Nick to tell the story of an interview with the star. One day in 1985, Nick accidentally got out of a lift on the wrong floor and saw Bowie deep in conversation with two members of Monty Python.

Nick admitted he hadn't had a big story in a while, so he made up a story about Bowie starring in the next Monty Python film. It was entirely untrue, but it made a big splash in the paper.

The next day, Bowie granted a very rare interview to The Sun and Nick went along to speak to him.

His reaction when Nick admitted making up the story is priceless.

Listen to Nick's story above.
