Menáge A Trois with David Bowie?

David Bowie

I was so adorable in the 70’s. So much so, that when David Bowie, seated in the passenger seat of his Sky Blue Jensen Interceptor spotted me with my t-tops off, in my 1978 Pontiac Firebird, driving along Olympic Boulevard,  he leaned out the window and asked me for my phone number. He said his name was DAVID in a sexy British accent, and I thought him quite handsome.

Ten minutes later, as  I was walking into my Westwood Apartment, my LAND LINE was ringing…remember this is 1978—-

DAVID asked me if I wanted to “hang out”.

“I have plans with my friend Mary for dinner, but you are welcome to join us.”

Mary Mass and I were best friends and she was going to be my maid of honor at my wedding. We were good girls from Miami Beach.David Bowie

45 minutes later, DAVID and his enormous bodyguard/driver showed up at my place.  DAVID handed me a bottle of Lafitte Rothchild. I thought that was cool.

We chatted and had some drinks while this awesomely charming man sat at my dining room table,  doodling something on a piece of paper. We must have had some conversation but I cannot remember anything.

At 7:30PM the three of us were off to Mary’s place in Brentwood, ten minutes away, in two separate cars. Mary played hostess to a lovely dinner. We sat around a coffee table, all four of us.

Sitting on the coffee table was a book of album covers, that Mary kept eyeing weirdly.

One Of The Women Who Turned Down A Menáge A Trois w/ David Bowie.

 

After a few minutes Mary Mass grabbed me and the book and we ran into the bedroom. She said, “I THINK THAT IS DAVID BOWIE”....We peeked out the door while squinting at the photos in the book. Holy Shit!!! It was.

Somehow we managed to ditched the bodyguard/driver, who left Mr. Bowie in our capable hands to spend the rest of the evening. We ate and had fun, and around midnight we drove him home…..(pre-UBER).

On the car ride to his quirky looking home in Laurel Canyon, he asked point-blank, “WOULD YOU GIRLS LIKE TO HAVE SEX WITH ME?”

We politely declined, and left him at his doorstep.

  8. Such sad news, thanks for cheering us up with this great story.

  9. And to think he threw YOU over for Iman! Great story! I’m taking this loss pretty hard.

  10. Loved the story Vicki.
    I didn’t know there were BFFs in the 70s (I recall BFDs and BVDs)
    See NY Times story Monday? Opening line: “It’s a good time to be David Bowie.”
    Spoiler Alert!

  11. I think my only reluctance would have been to have had to share him with a friend! Opportunity missed, for sure.

  12. A priceless moment in time, my goodness! Loved the album-cover discovery 🙂

  13. This is a great story, yet it makes Bowie seem rather creepy. But I suppose you could just see it as honest…

  14. A friend of mine had a similar encounter with Leonard Cohen. It must be a rock star thing. 😉

  15. Great story! Ever wonder what might have been?
