A MIDDLE-AGED married couple have admitted that David Bowie was their first mutual crush.
59-year-old accountant Roy Hobbs and his wife Mary, who have two grown-up children, both developed erotic feelings for Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust phase.
Hobbs said: “I remember I had just started courting Mary, and she told me about this space guy who was going to be on Top of the Pops.
“I remember thinking ‘who’s this total poofter?’. Then I realised that the makeup was highlighting some audaciously beautiful cheekbones.
“I was okay with the leotard too, when it became apparent that David’s slim but strong physique was perfectly suited to contour-hugging attire.”
Mary Hobbs, who works part time in a school, said: “We used to buy all David Bowie’s singles from Woolworths, then listen to them and daydream about polysexual adventures aboard a glam spaceship full of massive bean bags.
“It was quite typical for the time.”
Roy Hobbs added: “Before Bowie I was into Slade, but in a totally different way as I never used to imagine Noddy Holder’s body pressed against mine.”
The Hobbs’s have spent the morning respectfully listening to Bowie albums and agree that they still sound fucking amazing.
