Rock bands and naked women – a not entirely unusual combination.
These days, rock bands are frightfully dull characters on the whole, less debauched bad boys (and girls) than chin-stroking social justice types concerned about the patriarchy and such. So let’s remember when our hedonistic rock stars had nothing on their mind other than sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll and more sex, and were more than happy to pose for photographs with half-naked glamour girls. You’ll notice that some bands – specifically ones with umlauts in their name – are represented more than most, and one genre dominates. But we’ll cheerfully add more images as we find them.
Of course, we apologise for the outrageous sexism here – try as we might, we just couldn’t find shots of female bands posing with scantily clad male groupies. At least on our gallery of naked rock stars, there is much more gender equality!
Here are rockers Bon Jovi as you’ve never seen them before – cavorting in bed with naked models and also meeting Michael Jackson. The never-seen-before images of the rock legends from when they were young and starting out have been released by original tour manager Rich Bozzett as part of his revealing memoir, ‘Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi’, available via http://www.sexdrugsandbonjovi.com. Most startling for the clean-cut rockers is the early shots of them lying on a bed pretending to cavort with the topless models. Bozzett, who traveled with the band from 1983 through to 1989 during their rise to fame, said: “I lived with the band and saw it all – from the incredible fan support to how Jon and the band dealt with the drugs, alcohol and sex that were part of that world.”
