Rock stars who seem gay

We all know that Rob Halford of Judas Priest is out and proud, but what about the rockers who always pinged but have never officially declared they were gay?

I always thought David Lee Roth pinged to high heaven, as well as Paul Stanley from Kiss and Poison's drummer, Rikki Rockett.

David Lee Roth has GOT to be gay. Has he ever been linked to any woman? He was posing as a macho, longhaired rocker back in the day for adoring, screaming female fans so I can see why they'd want him to stay in the closet but what's the deal now.

Paul Stanley is a flaming queen.

Pet Gays

America, I’m not your pet gay.

America, I never said I wanted to marry you. Can’t we just live together?

America, I’m not a Care Bear on your suburban lawn with an adopted Guatemalan baby in my arms and my legal-in-twelve-states-and-DC husband weeping beside me and humming the score of Rent through his grateful tears.

Both Roth and Stanley are rumored to be at least bi (I think Martha Quinn outed Paul Stanley by accident on the Howard Stern show - she was talking about going out on a date with him and Howard asked if they fucked and she some something to the effect of Paul bowling in an entirely different lane - they went on a bowling date).

Roth is also said to be hung like a mule..he has self described it as a baby's arm holding an apple.

David Lee Roth is definitely a closet case.

The problem is not that the names mentioned in this thread are archaic, r43, it is that there are no real "rock stars" (in the classic sense...) anymore, just as there is little decent music created these days.

Back to topic...Rod Stewart was known to be included in a group of gay/bi British rockers who called each other women's names. I saw this on a documentary of Freddie Mercury. Freddie was on camera laughing about this, and while he didn't say they were gay outright, the message was clear, as the group included Freddie, Elton, Rod, etc., etc.

I never heard any rumors of Bono being gay. In fact, all the rumors have been about his affairs with other women: Christy Turlington, Andrea Corr, Winona Ryder. I've heard lesbian rumors about his bitchy wife Alison, though.

There's always been rumors about Paul Stanley being gay. Maybe he's bi; he had an affair with the actress Donna Dixon (she dumped him for Dan Akroyd!) and he's married now, with three kids. Ace Frehley was known for making out with guys. He was totally blotto on drugs or alcohol most of the time so he probably has some sexual experiences with men. Same with Peter Criss. A former friend of Frehley's named Gordon Gelbert wrote a scathing book about him called "Kiss and Tell." He said at a party or something Criss and Frehley got into a shouting match about which one of them had blown the other one first: "You blew ME first! No it was you who blew ME first!" I think this went on in the presence of their wives. Gene Simmons is the only member of Kiss who hasn't been outed as gay or bi. His reputation was that of an indiscriminate pussy hound who would fuck anything. Frehley said he gave the rest of the band crabs; seems all their costumes would be packed in one trunk and they all got infested with crabs due to Simmons being chronically afficted with them.

Freddie Mercury never declared.

I think Mika finally declared he's "bi," but I figure he's gayer than he admits.

Bowie declared a gay phase, then recanted. He was credibly witnessed to be bisexual with a preference for women but guarded and full of shit about it.

Janelle Monae is in a glass closet.

I think Gavin Rossdale is gayer than he admits.

After reading multiple accounts, I've decided that Tim Curry is straight. But he sure seems gay!

Trent Reznor has written some faggy-ass lyrics ("How'd you get so big? / How did you get so strong? / How did it get so hard? How did it get so long?"). I sure could have used an openly bisexual role model like him when I was coming out and he was blowing up. Thank god for Billie Joe Armstrong!

Iggy said something to the effect of "Assholing can be fun but you're just fucking yourself". If you take as many drugs as he did in the 70s, any port in a storm will do.

R134 Metallica were among the most strait-laced of all the 80s rock scene (like Iron Maiden, they avoided needles and strippers and stuck to beer and pot), but they aged the best so maybe there's something to not selling your soul...

James is sexy, and even more so because he had to grow into it.

Alcoholica straight-laced? Avoiding strippers? Ha ha. Slash on Hetfield:

[QUOTE]Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield from Metallica came over and we did some outrageous partying. Sally was there and I remember there was a girl that James wanted to fuck and I let him take her into my bedroom. They were in there for a while and I had to get in there to get something, so I crept in quietly and saw James head-fucking her. He was standing on the bed, ramming her head against the wall, moaning in that thunderous voice of his, just slamming away, and bellowing "That'll be fine! That'll be fine! Yes! That'll be fine!"

Strangely considering how they performed & dressed, Crue weren't at all a fan-service band R122. But Nikki's interest in theatrics (and KISS) and consistent choices of younger, prettier band-mates like Ashba does make one pause. 'Girls, Girls, Girls' - overcompensation?

A 30-something Nikki Sixx in leather pants is something to behold. The women & men of Moscow must have thrown themselves at him.

Vince was also a babe, and one of the best (& worst) rock frontmen of the 80s. He was showy & energetic with an endearing sense of humor (compare to nervy Axl triggered into droning, boring shadiness). When Vince belts notes (see YT link) he's got an edge comparable to any bluesy diva you'd care to name (Cee Cee James, Koko Taylor, Nancy Wilson) and his voice sounds lively & exciting on record. But when it comes to clearly singing through a live number, he falls apart. 'SHREEEOOHHAARRHHHGBLLLAAAOOOWW'. It takes some getting used to.

And it's not just him, the whole band have the same problem of throwing notes into a heap. You get why Nikki smashed up his bass so often, apparently it didn't often do what he wanted or expected it to do. Didn't they ever rehearse? (before 1997?)

Vince Neil wrote lyrics (uncharacteristically) on his solo record Exposed (1992?), and one of the songs ('Set Me Free') was clearly either written from the POV of a trussed-up sub...or from the POV of a guy at the mercies of someone much bigger & stronger than he is, R138 (not that it's hard to be bigger than Vince).

Tracii Guns also once called Vince, 'Roth, made evil', OP/R11.

C.C. Deville of Poison pinged to high heaven. I was never a huge metal fan, but still...

ALL of the Chili Peppers except maybe the drummer Chad Smith seem very gay.

Courtney Taylor-Taylor from the Dandy Warhols surprised me (and possibly others) by marrying a lady. He would have been a spectacular gay rock star, and David LaChapelle directed one of their videos back in the day, which also threw me off.

Morrissey seems gay. Apparently this is still news to him.

I read Johnny Marr's autobiography over the holidays and his attraction to Morrissey sounds pretty bisexual to me - I get that he's still married to the girlfriend from the late 1970's but the attachment to Morrissey read beyond typical bromance to me.

I continue to lament the reverse-closeting of David Bowie.

Vince Neil outed KISS on an episode of the 'The List' sometime in 2000, OP.

Vince voted to have KISS struck from the ranked 'list' of 'Sex, Drugs and Rock n'Roll Bands', because he felt their groupie antics were set-ups. In his words, "if you have to stage it, then you ain't doin' it." He should know first-hand, as early in their careers Motley Crue toured with KISS.

On the same episode Nikki Sixx expressed his admiration for the Rolling Stones and their gay-friendliness. He mentioned to Mick Jagger's sexual ambiguity, saying Mick caught his attention for being "decadent - you didn't know what he was having sex with. A male, a female...".

This thread is a pile of shit. It's reading like a Fraus tea party. Oh they dabbled in homo sex, but trust me they are STRAIGHT now. They even say so in their biographies and interviews. It MUST be true!

I want to retch at most of them so this isn't coming from a place of delusional wish fulfullment but most of these guys are seriously closeted. Recanted being bi. Yeah right only to the interviewer and as soon as she leaves off you go to twirl on that cock hiding in the back room.

There cannot be that many Bi guys all in one cluster, especially with the pressure of being masculine and one of their core functions is to appeal sexy to women. As we all know execs freak out at having their money makers be gay for fear of lost money. Even Bi is a pathetic label used by men that don't want to admit or fully commit to being gay. Remember Bi is far more palatable to delicate sensitivities and those easily offended.

Honestly if it fucking walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. It's a gay duck.

Contested definition of 'rockstar' and not Americans but the Gallagher brothers, especially Liam. Just a feeling.

There haven't been many wish-fulfilment posts so far, R159, the majority of picks seem like they could be closeted. Commercial rock is like any other performing arts business where people routinely lie about who they are and what they do as part of the mythos.

A poor guess would be someone like Tommy Lee, who lived & loved with Pamela Anderson on-and-off for 10 years. He even got clean for her.

The mock-rock-doc VELVET GOLDMINE has it that the Brian Slade character (played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers) was gay and mixed up about it. The character was a hybrid of Marc Bolan, pop star Jobriath, and Bowie. The character also performs songs by Brian Eno, Lou Reed and Steve Harley during the film.

So, were all those 70s glam guys gay? Jobriath was out and everyone knows Bowie was bi...but Harley? Bolan?

R149, writing for EXPOSED was outsourced to drifting studio musicians, although Vince did get credits. Phil Soussman (former Ozzy bassist) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol's guitarist) did most of the work.

Vince's version of 'Set Me Free' is in fact a cover of a Sweet song, from their 1974 album DESOLATION BOULEVARD (the one with 'Fox on the Run' on it). 'Set Me Free' was only included on the Stateside version of the album as a bonus track, so British & European fans of Vince (or even Sweet for that matter) didn't notice that it wasn't an original song written for EXPOSED and that they were hearing an old glam tune.

R137 'Blockbuster' is a great tune, and reads either very gay or very creepy depending on the POV of the lyrics. It's the 'Duck or Swan?' of the glitter-rock classics.

Is the Blockbuster character a (gay) vigilante hero on the run, slated by the public & press? Or is BB really the predatory villain he's described as, after anything with 'long black hair'?

They aren't classic rocker guys but Hall and Oates used to ping so loudly that I sustained hearing damage.

Billy Squier as previously mentioned^ had a very queeny vibe. Listening to the lyrics of Stroke Me when I was 17, reassured me that rock stars could be/and actually were gay. Hiding in plain site. Rob Halford is the poster boy. The gay-liscious leather drag was a huge turn on for a closeted gay teen back then.

There's no way 'Adrienne' wasn't titled 'Adrian' before EMI got a hold of it. There's also no way the breakup of Alex and songwriting partner Aaron Kamin wasn't a possessive-boyfriend issue.

A phenomenon known as 'bishonen' ('beautiful boy/man') in Japan, R182. Most Asian pop and rock stars male and female look very feminine and glamorous, with makeup/hair styled and model physiques.

But it doesn't give clues about sexuality if every act is doing the same to get noticed and fit in.

I can't believe I just read through this entire thread, and didn't see one mention of Dee Dee Ramone (unless I accidentally missed it). The Ramone's song "53rd & 3rd" was specifically written about him, referring to how he used to prostitute himself out to guys for money when he was younger. Porn star Kurt Lockwood, who I guess also played in a band, once mentioned on his (now defunct) website about an encounter he had with Dee Dee. At some point, he said Dee Dee propositioned him to hook up with him. Of course, years later, Kurt has gone on to do a whole bunch of bi films himself.

As for Kiss, I read in an interview from them a while back that early on when they started their band, they used to get all their attire from some gay leather fetish shop in NY (in Greenwich Village, I believe). Paul himself posed for a portrait in support of the No H8 campaign. Gene Simmons on his second album, wrote a song about a transexual woman. I was kind of surprised to read about Ace and Peter supposedly experimenting with guys.

Henry Rollins has always been very gay friendly afaik. He doesn't strike me as the type of person who would be closeted about his sexuality if he were gay/bi. He has also been on RuPaul's Drag Race as a judge, and did a car interview video with Ru on Youtube.

Warren Cuccurullo from Missing Persons came out with a molded dildo of his dick which he sold briefly in the early 2000's. He also had a web site where you could download nude videos of him - mostly solo, but also some of him fucking a woman. There was one video in particular, where he let two (presumably gay) guys interview him, while he was naked in the shower with a full hard-on. At one point he even lets one of the guys briefly hold his dick in their hand. Unfortunately, he had an abrupt change of heart at some point shortly afterwards and pulled all the adult content from his site and stopped selling the dildo.

Axl Rose, and I believe Duff McKagan have both mentioned in interviews, that they were sexually assaulted by older men when they were younger. In at least one case of them, I think it was Duff, it was his stepfather.
