Re: Mick in 60/70ies = androgyneous ??

All serious biographers agree that during the period 1973 through 1976 Mick Jagger tried to experience his androgyneous sides, and most probably he even had male sexual relationships (if only casually). Remember, this was the zeitgeist of the day.
That attitude is very striking on the tours of 1973, 1975 and 1976 with lots of makeup, female looks and gay elements in the show, especially during the 1975 and 1976 tours. You can see a picture of such a scene with Billy Preston in Annie Leibovitz' book on the 1975 US tour, and I saw it myself at a concert in 1976. There is a video which was filmed in 1976, probably in an empty hall in Cologne, Germany, where the 'gay show' reached its climax.
In 1978 times had changed, and Mick obviously returned to heterosexuality...
This statement is based on serious books so it's no 'looking under the sheets'.
