Leif Garrett *IS*

When I was his age (or probably younger) I would sometimes sneak away from my mom in the grocery store to go over to the magazine rack and look at TIGER BEAT for photos of Leif Garrett and his thick dick.

by Anonymousreply 209/12/2019

Leif just came out with his memoir. I've only read the first few pages online, and it seems like it may be an interesting read.

There's a whole chapter on Rick Finch (from KC and the Sunshine Band) who produced an album for him. Apparently Leif lived with Rick and KC for a couple of months during the recording, and Rick had a thing for him. That must have been an interesting stay.

by Anonymousreply 303/25/2020

He never seems to sing his songs. If you listen closely, his voice is spliced with other male voices. I doubt if he could belly-up to a mic and belt out a rock song. He was a total Tiger Beat creation.

R 29 Around 1975 or '76 I saw an underground gay magazine about nude celebrities and it had a genuine photograph of David Cassidy taken by Annie Leibovitz during her photo shoot for the cover of Rolling Stone in 1972, where David is seen from the hips up, apparently nude. But this photo in the gay magazine (which I saved for years but eventually threw away) had an outtake photo taken during the photoshoot that day by Annie and it was a full, complete nude of David laying in the same pose as he is on the R.S. cover except this went all the way down to at least his knees and you could see his huge erection and it was indeed very big and long, I would guess at least 9 inches. What surprised me wasn't that he was nude but that he had an erection for this photo shoot. I don't know how the magazine got that photo which obviously was never intended to be published and I've searched for decades and have never found it anywhere else. I saved that picture for years but finally threw it away. Back then there was no way for me to copy and save it like we can now on a computer. I found this magazine through an ad in the back of a tabloid I got at a porno shop around 1975. So, I've seen David's dick and I can verify it was huge! Straight, medium thickness.

R40 Really?! I though Leibovitz claimed she didn't photograph his dick? I read an interview where she claimed that the question people most frequently asked her was "where are the pics of David's penis?" and she said that she didn't shoot down that far.

She could be lying, of course. I've heard she was a huge druggie dyke (aside from being an overrated photographer, lol).

by Anonymousreply 5104/07/2020

R44 All I know for sure is what I saw in that magazine of nude celebrities and it was definitely an Annie Leibovitz photo taken during the photo shoot for the David Cassidy Rolling Stone cover in 1972 and in the photo I saw he was completely nude all the way down and had a huge erection sticking straight up toward his head. I of course was familiar with the R. S. cover so recognized it right away as being from that same day. I'm no expert but the picture looked to me to be genuine, not tampered with. My best guess is of course Annie took a nude erection shot of David and I will bet it was 100% David's idea. Naturally he would have told her to never publish it but if she had someone else make the prints for her a copy might have been secretly stolen. What's really surprising though is that this nude photo never seems to have made it beyond that 1975 gay magazine which was only sold through a mail in ad in the back of a gay tabloid sold in porno shops. I'm not surprised that she says she never took a photo of David's penis but there are only two people who know the truth and one of them is dead now. I am convinced the photo was the real thing. That was 45 years ago and I wish I had saved it. I finally decided I'd never need it again. If only I had had a computer back then.

by Anonymousreply 5204/08/2020

R52 Well, in that same interview with Leibovitz, she also stated that he had an erection when she was photographing him, and that he said something like "can I get some help, here?", insinuating that she should perform a sex act on him (supposedly he was high on coke during the shoot). But that is confirmation from Leibovitz herself that he had an erection, so I think her claim about not photographing his dick is total BS. I mean...you have a camera in your hand, and you're photographing the most famous teen idol of the decade, and you're NOT going to sneak a pic or two of his penis? Seriously?!

R53 Thanks for that input. I didn't know that Annie confirmed that David did have an erection during the Rolling Stone photoshoot. Now I know for sure that the photo I saw of David lying on his back nude with an erection, was a genuine photo. I wonder where it is now? I'm sure Annie still has it or at least the negative.

I'm always amazed when celebrities go out of their ways to make themselves look as unappealing as possible, when just moderate or even small changes could make them look so much better.

This is Leif Garrett in 2017. His face is not hideous, but that hair and unkempt facial hair, that stupid head scarf, the slovenly attire, and the extra weight make him look awful.

The extra weight probably means he was off opiods when the pic was taken, so it's not necessarily a bad sign. An extra 30 lbs is a small price to pay (for a straight guy!) for getting off heroin.

Yes, I read Leif’s book and really enjoyed it. It doesn’t read as a linear story, but is laid out in chapters of topics. One chapter is called “Masturbation” and Leif is very honest about things and tells a shocking story of Michael Jackson basically asking to jerk off together (they didn’t.)

After reading the book, I have so much respect for Garrett. His father left when he was a small child and then when Leif was grown, the guy suddenly walked into Leifs room and introduced himself. A heart breaking part is about the time Leif was in a car accident that made his passenger and best friend a lifelong paraplegic. Leif went bankrupt trying to support the guy. He talks about being the biggest teen star in the world, yet being lonely and wishing for anyone’s company. He was highly controlled and manipulated by his record company.

Anyhow, I highly suggest the book. He comes across as a brave, kind and very honorable guy.

A juicy excerpt from his book:

You couldn't miss him. He looked excited to see me, with a leering ear-to-ear grin. He was in his mid-twenties, kind of scrawny, with stringy hair and a face that looked vaguely Asian...and who could forget those sweat pants, which left nothing to the imagination? My first thought was, "Dude, next time you might want to think about underwear before wearing those things again". But, hey, this was Rick Finch who had some out to pick me up, so I didn't want to judge too quickly or too harshly. This guy, the co-founder, bassist and co-producer of KC and the Sunshine Band, had sold literally millions of records. And now, to his seeming delight, I was in his hands. [...] We soon arrived at his home, where, as it turned out, I stayed for two months. No hotel? Nope. This had been arranged perhaps on the one hand to save the Scottis money, but I'm guessing this also was something Rick had pushed to the Scotti brothers to agree to for his own more private, lascivious purposes. [...] Nothing was left to chance, it seemed, in this sterile environment -- except maybe what he imagined happening in the bedroom.

On my days off, I did my best to avoid Rick's subtle advances, which, at a certain point, seemed to fade once he got the message. He got a little bitchy over that, but he still worked hard in the studio. But it was still a weird scene down there. One night when I got back to the house, I walked through the kitchen, and for the first and only time there I saw KC, his face illuminated by the light coming from the refrigerator door. "Hey, man," I said, introducing myself, "I'm--" "I know who you are," he shot back tersely before slamming the door shut and walking out. Did he think something was happening with me and Rick?

I'm a 70's kid, and I always loathed all the teen idols...which is weird, me being gay and all, you'd think I would have had crushes on all of them, but no. I despised every last one of them, except maybe David Cassidy, because I remember watching the Partridge Family. But Donny Osmond, Shaun Cassidy, Bobby Sherman, Tony DeFranco...I just wanted to punch them. But the one I hated most of all was Leif Garrett. He just looked like a little bitch, and he had ZERO musical talent. None. You could tell the producers went crazy trying to make his voice sound halfway decent. At least the other guys could sing. (Well, Bobby Sherman was pretty awful, but he at least attacked his material with a certain admirable gusto. Plus he had the good sense to walk away from it all when the hits stopped happening, so kudos to Bobby.)
