Demo Tape Of David Bowie's 'Starman' Hitting The Auction Block

CNN reports that an unheard demo tape featuring what is believed to be the first recording of the late David Bowie&apos;s iconic song &quot;Starman,&quot; will go up on the block at Omega Auctions in Newton-le-Willows, in northwest England.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said in a phone interview that he is fairly certain this is the first recording of the song.

&apos;Starman&apos; was released on the 1972 album &quot;The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.&quot; The recording is currently owned by Kevin Hutchinson, who was given the tape in 1971 by a friend who had worked with Bowie in the studio.

Auctioneers estimate the recording could sell for as much as $13,000.
