An episode dedicated to David Bowie and an appearance by an eerie lookalike of the thin white duke. Richie is hitting rock bottom, he has gone on a coke fuelled bender as Devon has gone on a retreat with friends of Andy Warhol which has give the director an excuse to show the actress full frontal naked.

Richie is accompanied by a hot dog loving German companion Ernst who seems to be him everywhere so we figure quickly that he must be a figment of Richie's alcohol and drug frazzled imagination.

Andrea Zito joins the record company and her business acumen might be the record company's best hope for survival. Kip Stevens finally figures out that there is more to music than attitude if you are to survive.

By the end Richie is alone, Devon has left him and taken the kids, Zak at his daughter's Bat Mitzvah has told Richie to get lost and we see what happened to Ernst many years earlier in an open-top joyride. The best part of the entire series so far, as Richie gazes at the wooden coaster called 'Cyclone', emerging from the mist is Buddy Holly serenading him.
