Mick Jagger had 'fun times' with David Bowie

Mick Jagger had 'fun times' with David Bowie

Sir Mick Jagger loved going out dancing with David Bowie.

The Rolling Stones frontman will miss the "fun" he used to have with his late friend - who died of cancer aged 69 last Sunday (10.01.16) - but is enjoying looking back on the good times they had.

He told 'Entertainment Tonight': "We used to go out in New York a lot. We used to go out dancing all the time.

"[I'll most miss] the good times we had together.

"We had fun times. It's nice to remember them.

In 1985, Mick and David teamed up for a cover of 'Dancing in the Street' and the 'Brown Sugar' rocker's son James Jagger admits he plays the video whenever he needs cheering up because it always makes him laugh.

He said: "The 'Dancing in the Street' video is hilarious. Whenever I'm feeling blue, I just google 'Dancing in the Street' and it makes me laugh. It's so '80s, it's amazing."

The 'Vinyl' actor also paid tribute to Bowie for being both a "pivotal musician" and an icon of self-expression.

He said "He was really a champion of 'I don't give a s**t of what you think about me'.

"I think that was really important for that whole period that was coming out of the shackles of the '50s and the second World War. It was that next generation that really pushed the envelope of self-expression and creativity, and I think he was paramount and inspiration for so many people."
