David Bowie, Jimmy Page and that Small Issue of Child Rape

I won’t be buying David Bowie’s new album today. I’ve been a fan for years. Right up until I read this blog post on the 70s rock scene in LA and the obsession with “Baby Groupies” in. I genuinely did not realise this was a thing until I read the blog last year: what kind of man has “sex” with a 13 year old child?

Apparently, a whole lot including Bowie but also :

  • Iggy Pop
  • Johnny Thunders of the New York Dolls
  • Jimmy Page
  • Mick Jagger
  • Dee Ramone
  • Marc Bolan
  • Alice Cooper
  • Rod Stewart
  • Bill Wyman
The child David Bowie raped, because no 13 year old can consent to sex with an adult man, was part of the “Baby Groupie” scene. I’m not going to name her here despite her name being easily available on line because I believe that all rape victims deserve anonymity. The young girl was then abused by Jimmy Page for more than a year and half. Their relationship started when his manager “kidnapped” her for Page. The young woman was repeatedly locked in hotel rooms by Page and his manager because of her age and their fear of the legalities of the situation; you know that whole child rape thing.
The media sources I have read about these two men claim that the 13 year old “lost her virginity” to Bowie and was in a consensual loving relationship with Page. She was a child abused by two adult men who have never really taken responsibility for their behaviour.
Bowie and Page may be brilliant musicians but they deserve to be on the #DickheadDetox.
I won’t be buying their music ever again.
