From his humble beginnings working for Hull City Council to a career in the spotlight, playing alongside David Bowie and taking his place in the Rock Hall of Fame, the documentary film Beside Bowie provides insight into the life and career-long associations of guitarist extraordinaire Mick Ronson. Working closely with members of Ronson's family, producer/director Jon Brewer continues his tradition of intimate access and authenticity in chronicling the life and works of this man, a cornerstone of rock.

Despite his production and guitar work with Lou Reed, Morrissey, Ian Hunter and Mott The Hoople, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp and many others, it is Ronson's dynamic support, contribution, and co-creation of the expansive and multi-faceted career of Bowie and in fact that era of music, that the film and its soundtrack exposes. Featuring exclusive narration by Bowie and exclusive contributions by Rick Wakeman, Joe Elliott, Roger Taylor, Ian Hunter, Angie Bowie and many more, Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story is a tribute to an uncomplicated man who achieved the pinnacle of success in the music industry as well as the rarefied respect from his contemporaries for his production and guitar skills.

The soundtrack also doubles as Ronson's first official career retrospective compilation. As well as highlights from Ronson's solo records, the compilation includes material from his key collaborations with Bowie, Elton John, Ian Hunter, Michael Chapman and Queen. The album also includes a previously unreleased cover version of "This Is For You" by Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and a piano tribute to Ronson from Bowie's piano-man and band alumni Mike Garson (David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins).
