A new book is alleging that Mick Jagger and David Bowie really fancied each other. It has been rumored that the two rockers enjoyed an affair back in the day -- but a controversial new biography, Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, by Christopher Andersen truly lays it all out. According to the book, the affair started in the early seventies after Mick and David met in 1973 at one of Bowie's concerts.
The book says, "Bowie and Jagger were soon spotted everywhere together without their wives: sitting ringside at the Muhammad Ali - Ken Norton bout, hanging out at the London disco Tramp, yelling and stomping their approval at a Diana Ross concert, or just cuddling up together on a hotel room couch. Neither superstar complained when one enterprising photographer snapped the two men in a moment of repose, Bowie tenderly cradling Mick's head in his lap. Bowie also took Mick to gay films."
The book continues to talk about when Angie Bowie, who was married to David at the time -- came home to find the two men asleep together in bed. The book says, "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."
