Tales of Rock – Bowie and Jagger in Bed

David Bowie is an innovative English musician that has sold over 140 million albums. He is an extremely popular singer and has done a lot of work to help fight important world issues. In 1972, Bowie became one of the first popular singers to reveal to the public that he was bisexual. Bowie gave an interview that was broadcast around the world. Since that time he has bounced back and forth on the issue and remains married to Somali-American model Iman.

In 1970, David Bowie was married to a woman named Angela and the couple divorced in 1980. In 1990, after a ten-year gag order ended, Angela Bowie appeared on The Joan Rivers Show and gave some controversial details about her time with David. She is quoted: “I caught him in bed with men several times. In fact the best time I caught him in bed was with Mick Jagger.” At this point, Howard Stern, who was involved with the interview, asked Angela if Jagger and Bowie had their clothes off. She said: “They certainly did.” The accusation became international news and Jagger released a statement that dismissed the claim.

A week after the interview, Angela Bowie went on television and said that although she had seen Mick Jagger and Bowie naked, it didn’t necessarily mean they weren’t sleeping. She clarified: “I certainly didn’t catch anyone in the act.” Some people have linked the event to the 1973 Rolling Stones hit song Angie. However, David Bowie said it best: “About 15 or 16 years ago, I really got pretty tired of fending off questions about what I used to do with my penis in the early ’70s. My suggestion for people with a prurient interest is to go through the 30 or 40 bios on me and pick out the rumor of their choice.”

This is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.

  1. I love David Bowie and have a healthy appreciation of Mick Jagger’s work with the Stones. However, that video for Dancing In The Street is an abomination. It is actually physically painful to watch. These are the guys who wrote Space Oddity and Sympathy For The Devil…how could they not see how awful this was? Family Guy once played that video in its entirety just to set up Peter with the following line when it was over: “That’s right, Folks. That happened. And we LET it happen.”

  2. Interesting piece on Bowie …”and remains married to Somali-American model Iman.”. You are aware David Bowie has passed away right?
    As for the DITS video, as a clip made for charity purposes and with both Bowie and Jagger massive satyrists, is it any surprise they would produce a text that created fresh fodder for the gossip table and had a huge party in the process?

    1. Thank you for your comment! I wrote that piece when he was still alive. I’ll edit that now. You make an excellent point in regard to the video. I never looked at it that way and will share that point with my friend Johnny R. the next time we’re sitting in McGlincheys drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and debating about music. Thank again! I appreciate your words.
