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.'"

Really old news. Gotta be reaching for a news story to come up with this. I first heard about this "gay" affair in 1972!!!

Why do you think that this is news? I heard this at least thirty years ago! How come the publicity hound, manufacturesd 'star' Beyonci Knowles hasn't come out to support Bowie and Jagger?

Not a surprise to me. And everyone wonders why the world is going to h**l in a handbasket. The kind of perverse behavior exhibited by these 2 wankers should be enough of an answer.

I dont find this shocking at all. All the free sex and love of the 70s, it makes sense. No biggie really. Stories like this wont hurt them.
