Mick Ronson and David Cassidy: Will The Odd Couple Come Out?

John Morthland, Creem, February 1977

WHAT A difference a month makes. About 30 days ago as I write this, I interviewed Mick Ronson in his Manhattan apartment. I had never been a Ronson fan until his appearance with the Rolling Thunder Revue, oddly enough, and his subsequent cameo roles in several New York City shows. He was trying to put together a band, he said in this interview, but was in no real hurry. Auditions were going fine, but he didn't want to make any real splashes until everything was just right.
