He sold more than 140 million records in the musical career spanning almost 50 years before his death in 2016.

But during his promotion to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, David Bowie was involved in a variety of small British bands, including one called the Manish Boys when he was only 18 years old.

And these recently unearthed archive photographs dating from March 1965 show the singer when he was just beginning, being interviewed by television producer Barry Langford before a BBC presentation in London.

It was claimed that Langford hated Bowie's long hair, and asked if he would cut it before appearing on his show, but Bowie told Langford: "I will not cut my hair for the prime minister, let alone the BBC & # 39;

However, Bowie was allowed to keep his padlocks for the interpretation of the band's song "I Pity the Fool", provided the group donated their fees to the charity if complaints were filed, of which there were none.

Only a year after the Manish Boys appeared on the BBC Two show at Langford Gadzooks! It's all happening, Bowie had released his first single, "Do Anything You Say," and his self-titled debut album came out in 1967.

Bowie died on January 8, 2016, having fought secretly against the disease for 18 months. His death caused a torrent of pain from celebrities, with several important sites in Europe and the United States transformed into memorials.
