Though it’s been rumored for what seems like forever (their “Dancing In The Street” video did them no favors), a book that’s coming out is lifting the curtain on the long alleged David Bowie-Mick Jagger sexual relationship.
In a published excerpt in the New York Daily News from Christopher Andersen’s Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, the author shows that the Rolling Stones singer put his moves on the Thin White Duke, with his wife eventually catching the iconic singers in bed together.
The excerpt reads: “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 when she returned home one morning and went straight to the kitchen to make some tea. The Bowies’ maid, who had arrived about an hour earlier, approached the lady of the house 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 on a tray. While it was not a case of coitus interrupts, Angie “felt absolutely dead certain that they’d been screwing. It was so obvious, in fact, that I never even considered the possibility that they hadn’t been screwing.”
This gives new meaning to moves like Jagger.
