Mick Jagger-David Bowie Gay Affair Alleged in New Book

by at . Comments

They were both notorious ladies' men in their heyday, but a new book alleges that rock legends Mick Jagger and David Bowie also romanced one another.

A controversial new book, Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, by Christopher Andersen, details the tryst with quotes from friends and family.

Andersen claims the Bowie-Jagger gay affair started in the early 70s, with Mick going backstage at one of Bowie's concerts to meet up with his new friend.

"Bowie and Jagger were spotted everywhere together without their wives," Andersen says.

"Neither complained when a photographer snapped them in a moment of repose, Bowie tenderly cradling Mick’s head in his lap. Bowie also took Mick to gay films."

It came to a head though, Andersen claims, when Angie Bowie, who was married to David at the time, came home to find the two men asleep together in bed.

"By October 1973, the Bowies were living on Oakley Street, just a stroll from Cheyne Walk. Angie had been out of town for a few days," the author alleges.

"She returned home one morning and went straight to the kitchen to make some tea. The Bowies’ maid, who arrived about an hour earlier, approached her with a peculiar look on her face. 'Someone,' she told Angie, 'is in your bed.'"

"Angie went upstairs to her bedroom, slowly pushed the door open, and there they were: Mick Jagger and David Bowie, naked in bed together, sleeping. Both men woke up with a start. 'Oh, hello,' said Bowie, clearly taken by surprise. 'How are you?'

"'I’m fine,' Angie replied. 'Do you want some coffee?' Mick, blinking awake, remained silent. Angie returned a few minutes later with coffee and orange juice."

Andersen claims that back-up singer Ava Cherry also supported the story of their affair with her own personal account. He writes:

"Ava Cherry, a backup singer who lived with the Bowies for a time, reportedly told a friend that 'Mick and David were really sexually obsessed with each other. Even though I was in bed with them many times, I ended up just watching them have sex.'"

Get a life (and some medication for your paranoia) Your father fought for his beliefs, which hopefully included the belief in the right of all people to live free of bigotry. Some of thise people you refer to as Homo Brits lost their fathers in that war, did your's come home?

@shuron filthy Americans? Blind and foolish? We take regular showers in this country and our eyes are fine. Which is why this is old news and no one is shocked. Some idiot wrote a book. Keep your nasty opinions about Americans to yourself and on your side of the "pond".
