Trying and failing to find a good version of the story of Handsome Dick Manitoba and Scott "Top Ten" Kempner of The Dictators at a 1972 Elvis show at MSG and watching Elvis's RCA labelmate Bowie totter in mid-show in full ZIggy Stardust regalia.

Couldn't find it in any book, maybe because I heard it on the radio:
David Bowie R.I.P

Madison Square Garden about ten minutes after Elvis hit the stage. I had the humiliating experience of walking down the center aisle
Handsome Dick Manitoba just said that he and Scott Kempner paid eight dollars each to go to that show and they sat very close to Bowie. After the show SK made his way up to Bowie and asked him what he thought of the show to which the answer was the one word "undeniable."
