'He made you feel that you were the only person who exists, the centre of his universe.
Then he had you in his pocket, so to speak, but after that, he would move on,' said David Bowie's former assistant, Tony Zanetta After a David Bowie concert in Los Angeles in October 1972, just four months after the release of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and with American Bowiemania at its height, DJ Wolfman Jack threw a party at his home, with the singer as guest of honour. Together, they walked into the bathroom, locked the door, and did not emerge for quite some time, ignoring two drag queens who hammered on the door with their high heels, screaming, ‘Open the door, we can do a better job than she can!
April 1992 - Present Iman and British rocker David Bowie have been married in bliss for over 20 years.
They have two daughters, Zulekha Haywood from Iman's previous marriage, and Alexandria Zahra Jones.
Bowie, born in Brixton and raised in modest circumstances in the London suburb of Bromley, was determined to break into London’s music scene.
According to Leigh he became ‘adept at playing London’s gay elite’.
Bowie's colourful, gender-bending sex life has included rumored relationships with Elizabeth Taylor and Bianca Jagger as well as ones - which the women have themselves confirmed - with Marianne Faithfull and Susan Sarandon.
In '73 and '74 Bowie produced the Astronettes, a nonstarter that features Cherry's vocals on a curious collection of Bowie-penned tracks; the session was released in somewhat official forms in 19.As a Seventies superstar, he trumpeted to the press that he was gay at a time when even Elton John was still in the closet, then amended it to bisexual, in the process smashing through the accepted barrier of what was considered ‘normal’ sexuality.He squired Playboy model Bebe Buell, singer Nina Simone, Charlie Chaplin’s widow Oona (22 years his senior) and transsexual Romy Haag, and though Bowie has explicitly denied it, many have enjoyed speculating – as his first wife Angie once did – that David and Mick Jagger were lovers.The singer Ava Cherry was sound asleep in her Lincoln Park home on the morning of January 11 when her phone began incessantly chiming and vibrating with alerts. "My heart just sank," recalls Cherry, who was raised in Woodlawn. I don't know why I felt that suddenly because, of course, he was married—but my remembering him from the past was just a flood of fantastic memories.Who's Facebooking me and texting me this much this early? He began my career in many ways." Though Bowie's first marriage didn't legally end until 1980, his love affair with Cherry spanned one of the late artist's most intensely creative periods, from the tail end of 1972 until 1975, during which Bowie was either touring on, writing, or recording the albums The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972), Aladdin Sane (1973), Diamond Dogs (1974), and Young Americans (1975).
