"My biggest up was when I met Mickey Rourke for the first time and he said (unspeakably poor Mickey Rourke impression), 'Oh man, in 1973, man, I was dressing just like you, man, I had green hair and stack-heeled boots and leather trousers.' And I'm trying to see Mickey Rourke wearing all this gear. I said, 'You were a glam-rocker?' He said, 'Yeah, man, in Florida nobody had seen anything like it!' I found that absolutely great. I felt so encouraged by that. A guy like that and it was a major part of his life."
David Bowie, Q, June 1989
