It was a rare moment of solitude when Fred Armisen paid tribute to the late David Bowie. 


"Watching him was for me a life changing experience,” the former SNL cast member gushed. "David Bowie transformed whatever space he was in, whatever medium he was using and, that night for me, he transformed live television.”

He then introduced David Bowie’s first ever SNL performance in December 1979. It was a rendition of his very popular “The Man Who Saved the World.” Klaus Nomi and New York cabaret singer and drag artist Joey Arias accompanied him – they literally picked him up and brought him to the microphone!

It was the show's fifth season and Bowie was fresh off the release of "Lodger," his final in a trio of albums that would come to be known as his Berlin trilogy, inspired by the burgeoning German music scene and the soon-to-erupt new wave style.

The legendary rockstar died at the age of 69 on January 10th after his battle with cancer.
