Here are some interesting black and white photos of Lou Reed, Mick Jagger and David Bowie at the Cafe Royale after Ziggy Stardust's last "live" performance at Hammersmith Odeon in London in 1973, taken by Mick Rock. All kinds of characters showed up, including Ringo Starr, Jeff Beck, Bianca Jagger and Lulu..., but David spent much of his time chatting and laughing with Lou Reed and Mick Jagger.
"I've just remembered that I never told you about the party I had at the Café Royal after my last concert, so I'll make this week's letter about that... Oh, what a night it turned out to be! Mick Jagger, Lou Reed, Jeff Beck, Lulu, Spike Milligan, Dana Gillespie, Ryan O'Neal, Elliott Gould, Ringo Starr and Barbra Streisand... all there at my last concert party at the luxurious Café Royal - everyone looking so lovely in their sparkling evening clothes and colourful make-up... dancing, sipping champagne and tasting delicious salmon and big fresh strawberries and cream. The disc jockey played lots of really good soul and rock 'n' roll records, and the dance floor was absolutely packed all night." - David Bowie recalledThe gathering was also a great opportunity for Bowie to celebrate his fame and new friendships with fellow musical heavyweights such as Mick Jagger. But according to biographer Jerry Hopkins (1985) Bowie had reason to be anxious about Mick Jagger's attendance. Reportedly Jagger had threatened Bowie because he believed that Bowie had put the "make" on his wife Bianca earlier that week. Hopkins even reports that Bowie had wanted to cancel the show because of Jagger's threats. However, all was made up at the party and Bowie danced with Jagger and briefly kissed both Jagger and Lou Reed when asked to by Mick Rock who was photographing the event.
