Underwood claims he is responsible for giving the singer his distinctive ‘alien eye’ after the pair came to blows over a girl when they were bandmates.
Other panellists for the event include Charlie Waterhouse, the designer of the designer of the Brixton £10 note featuring Bowie’s portrait, and Simon Parkes the former Brixton Academy owner.
Ticket holders can also take part in London’s Original David Bowie Musical Walking Tour, which includes spontaneous renditions of his greatest hits along the way.
The two-hour tour has attracted fans from across the world, including Australia, New Zealand and Brazil.
Mr Stephenson said: “In the year that I have been running these walking tours of Brixton I have found that there are many reasons for Bowie fans to want to experience a guided tour of David Bowie’s early life in his hometown.
“This year I wanted to breathe even more life into those major stopping points of the tour, so have brought in some help from several key figures connected to Bowie’s life and career.”
