David Bowie is heralded as a bastion for changing attitudes towards sexuality and male masculinity/femininity. However many fans of the beloved rock star conveniently forgive or live in ignorance of his devious sexual exploits. Lori Mattix disturbingly celebrated in rock and roll culture as a ‘baby groupie’ confirmed that a 26 year old David Bowie took her virginity at age 14:
“He got into the tub, already filled with water, and asked me to wash him. Of course I did. Then he escorted me into the bedroom, gently took off my clothes, and de-virginized me” Lori Mattix revealed speaking to Thrillist.
Bowie then went on to have a threesome that same night again with Mattix and her 15 year old drugged up friend Sable. There seems to have been a perverted culture of statutory rape of young groupies in the 70s. A rock and roll pedophile ring involving some of the biggest names in the world of music.
Edgar Alan Poe
Edgar Alan Poe was a creative genius, a man who thrived on the darker side of life and elegantly expressed it through writing. The man led a life and died a death of mystery and intrigue of which his marriage was no different.
The morbid theme of his work carried into his life, developing an incestuous relationship with his cousin Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe. Edgar then 27 years old took his 13 year old cousin as a wife.
Many a fan will forgive Edgar Alan Poe for his disturbing marriage to his own young cousin. Certainly in the US during the 19th century the age of consent was between 10 and 16 depending on the state. However this was far from the norm as women typically entered marriage aged between 20 and 22 (Sanders, A).
This begs the question – how much depravity are we willing to forgive for talent?
Elvis Presley was another man of mystique, mystery and talent. From the inception of his life Elvis was plagued with a terrible secret. He was the surviving twin of two brothers, having lost his sibling at birth. This may very well have led to his warped perversions in later life.
It has been speculated that his mother’s over protective smothering since losing her other son had left the superstar emotionally dysfunctional. An obsession with purity and innocence, possibly in morbid homage to his dead brother drove an infatuation with virginity.
Intimidated and disgusted by older more experienced women Elvis would target younger girls. The most notable target of this would be his soon to be wife Priscila who he met at the not so ripe age of 14. Ever obsessed with the purity of his girls, Elvis would not take Priscilla’s virginity until much later. However that does not excuse the deplorable acts he did partake with the young girl:
“That first night with Elvis, ‘he made love to her in every way short of penetration”. (Howe, C 2014)
It also seemed that Elvis had a kink for foreplay and voyeurism and very rarely committed to full penetrative sex. Elvis would eventually marry a 21 year old Priscilla and he fully consummated the marriage, leading to the birth of Lisa Marie.
Perhaps unsurprisingly after the birth of Lisa Marie, Elvis would soon break of the marriage with Priscilla. Presumably again in homage to another dead relative – his mother. He believed that motherhood was sacred and was unwilling to have sex with her again. His affinity for young girls and virginity must also have played a huge part in this decision.
Although the complete list of virgin and underage conquests of Elvis Presley will never be known here is a list of some of them:
- Priscilla Beaulieu 14
- Jackie Rowland 14
- Frances Forbes 14
- Gloria Mowel 14
- Heidi Heissen 14
- Sandy Ferra 14
- Reeca Smith 14
- Joyce Bova 25 (virgin)
- Linda Thompson 22 (Virgin)
- Kathy Westmoreland 25 (Virgin)
(Howe, C 2014) & (Leafe, D 2010)
It is quite ironic that David Bowie and Elvis Presley share these devious traits as well as a birthday. Titans of music and culture, but the culture of disturbing sexual fetishes lurks disgustingly amongst the greatness. Elvis met a fittingly disgusting end, dying on the toilet via heart attack before his time but past his best – a young, overweight, constipated junkie.
Maybe this is well known, maybe this isn’t, but I struggle to believe that so many actors would work for and heap praise on a child rapist. Indeed, even the worm that is Piers Morgan deserves credit for outing actors for their support of paedophile Roman Polanski. Morgan recently decimated Ewan McGregor for his hypocrisy in refusing to appear on This Morning, after he disagreed with his views on the Woman’s March against Trump:
“Had we done the interview, I might have asked him how his heroic support for women justified him working for director Roman Polanski, a self-confessed and convicted child abuser, on the film, The Ghostwriter,”. Wrote Piers Morgan (Oppenheim, M 2017)
Polanski is another celebrity to have lived through horrific tragedy. He was a survivor of the Krakow Ghetto and his mother was murdered in Auschwitz. Sharon Tate a movie star herself – the pregnant wife of Polanski, was mercilessly murdered by the Manson family. However Polanski has inflicted his own tragedy in the world.
In 1977 at the age of 43 he drugged and sodomised 13 year old Samantha Gailey. Despite Oscar winning fame Polanski has been on the run ever since he admitted the crime. It is bizarre that Hollywood would permit Polanski to win an Oscar for The Pianist, knowing he was a fugitive for his crime of child rape, and could not collect the prize for fear of arrest.
What is particularly hard to stomach about this case is that he has managed to escape justice and stigma. A whole host of actors and celebrity figures either openly work for or defend the beast:
The recurring theme here is that people are willing to forgive the most heinous crimes as long as that person is extremely talented and produces art. Wonderful.
Steve Tyler From Aerosmith
Another 70s rock star, another 14 year old groupie another celebrity child molester. Although this follows a similar theme of the previously mentioned musicians this somehow scrapes the grime off the bottom of the barrel.
The girl in question was Julia Holcomb. Somehow, some way, the lead singer from Aerosmith convinced the child’s parents to sign over legal guardianship to the singer. Essentially her parents signed a permission slip for her to get used and abused by the 27 year old singer.
Not only does he openly admit to it, he actually courts and receives sympathy over an abortion he allegedly forced her to have at the age of 17 (Todd B, 2011). Tyler showed little remorse after the deed was done, moving on to notorious groupie Bebe Buell.
Far from facing the scorn of the public and the media, Steven Tyler is highly celebrated to this day. His musical accolades and his performance as a judge on American idol has turned him into a household name. But far from the wholesomely eccentric persona of the rock icon, lurks a murky past. Of statutory rape and the alleged forced abortion of a 14 year old girl. One he was sworn to protect. It seems in America all that separates the prison yard chomos and 70s rock pedophiles is the ability to make great music.
There was undoubtedly something very strange going on in the 70s rock era. There seems to be an underlying child molestation culture among this clique. Time after time, rock stars of this era have openly been in sexual relationships with children, with little to no stigma or punishment. In researching this list it is disturbing how many 70s musicians courted the same ‘baby groupies’. Men who could have any women in the world passing around between each other underage girls. Many more high profile rock stars could make this list via the same victims. There is an underlying web of child exploitation and some of the greatest rock stars of that era are the biggest spiders involved.
