Haven't seen this secret gig story by Bowie & Iggy in 1977 at the Oaks Hotel in Manchester before.

Having delved deeper into this story I think, as I did initially, it has to be fake ?

Feels all wrong.
Lust For Life was released in autumn 1977 for a start, long after the Idiot tour that DB played on. And Iggy doing a duo set with DB on keyboards and guitar just doesn’t sound right either. I call Fake.

I knew The Oaks well, and the Bernie Inn it turned into. I went there A LOT. It was literally a five minute walk up the road from the college I attended at the time. I have never heard this story before. I'm about 99.9% sure that if it happened, I would have heard about it.
