David Bowie may have taken Mick Jagger to bed, but he shared an equally personal moment with Iggy Pop: they were arrested for criminal possession of marijuana at the same time. In March 1976, the Thin White Duke and his Stooge buddy were in Rochester, New York, for a concert, and following the show, the singers were nabbed “at 2:25 a.m. in a three-room suite in the [Americana Rochester Hotel] by four city vice squad detectives and a State Police investigator.”
For only $20,000, which is pretty low compared to Labyrinth‘s codpiece budget, one lucky buyer gets “a very rare photograph. Fresh from a prominent estate in Upstate NY. Never offered on the market until now…This photo came from a man who was present when Bowie and Pop were arrested.” Ah, the 1970s, when NARC cops resembled the weed-smokers they were arresting.
Unless they were arresting David Bowie and Iggy Pop.
Haven’t seen too many police officers with bleach-blonde hair.
