The time David Bowie hid from Roger Moore

The time David Bowie hid from Roger Moore
Dylan Jones has written a book about much missed musical legend David Bowie, and the stories he’s dug up are beginning to leak out. So, how about a James Bond themed excerpt, which Jones is handily quoted explaining in the Telegraph:
“[Author Hanif] Kureishi told me this story, that when David Bowie moved to Switzerland at the end of the Seventies to escape tax and drug dealers, he didn’t know anybody there… He was in this huge house on the outskirts of Geneva – he knew nobody…. One day, about half-past five in the afternoon, there’s a knock on the door, and there he was: ‘Hello, David.’ Roger Moore comes in, and they had a cup of tea. He stays for drinks, and then dinner, and tells lots of stories about the James Bond films. They had a fantastic time – a brilliant night.”
“But then, the next day, at 5.30… Knock, knock, it’s Roger Moore. He invites himself in again, and sits down: ‘Yeah, I’ll have a gin and tonic, David.’ He tells the same stories – but they’re slightly less entertaining the second time around… After two weeks [of Moore turning up] at 5.25pm – literally every day – David Bowie could be found underneath the kitchen table pretending not to be in.”
If true, hilarious. If true. David Bowie: A Life by Dylan Jones is what you’re after.
