Bowie in Bangkok: legend captured in documentary visiting 80s go-go bar (VIDEO)

Following the passing of superstar David Bowie, we’d like to remember his greatness and talent with a video that followed him as he visited 80s Bangkok on the Asia leg of his “Serious Moonlight” tour.

In a 1984 documentary “Ricochet,” Bowie journeyed to the Far East and indulges himself in Bangkok’s notorious red light district, where he also encounters a strange shadowy figure.

The film shows Bowie exploring the cities of Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore, and includes a typically bizarre angle as a dark sinister figure in sunglasses follows David wherever he goes.

This stranger has been interpreted by some as a dark representation of David’s fame, which he had a love/hate relationship with.
