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.'" 


Their love affair was played out in the UK media decades ago.Filthy Americans.Your blind and foolish.They both have admitted in being bisexual.


Everyone knows david is bi.Mick first i heard of it.But my dad always dis-liked the stones and other rock bands because he thought they were gay.


This is very old news. And..., who cares?


More proof that some will stick it anywhere.


BTW... I love these guys and their music!


omg..I am so glad others remembered this! It was such a "OMG did you hear???" in the 70's/ I was born in 1966. and I remember the rumor about the stomach pumped. what a scandal it was back then! I was young and believed it all. Years later I heard it was all BS. why is it back now? Does anyone who buys "books" now, read or care to read about Mick, David or Rod?


I think they made a very beautiful couple, and btw who care's, I mean really is this suppose to be new's, anyway I'm sure the book will be a hugh success, only to feed alot of fantasy's from the masses...


who really cares?....it's their lives....i have NO PROBLEM with singers/actors, etc being gay.....their music isn't my cup of tea....but, that's me. alisa


This isn't news - it's been around for years.


@OLD NEWS, just so you know, I heard the exact same rumor about Rod Stewart. It's bullshit, pure and simple . . . and so what if Mick and David slept with each other? It's obvious they were experimenting with bisexuality. They have both had committed heterosexual relationships since this, and have more than a few children between them. What they do in the bedroom is them and their partner. And while we're talking about stories that aren't really news, Teresa Giudice has ugly kids.
