“We can be Heroes, for ever and ever”
The June edition of Esquire magazine in the UK is boasting five exclusive covers for their Heroes issue, with the one pictured here being the one that will probably interest you most.
The cover image was taken at Cannes Film Festival in 1978 at the screening of Just A Gigolo with another full-page shot inside being taken during the filming of Bowie’s appearance on Soul Train in 1975.
Here’s the blurb from the Esquire site.
First Look | Heroes Issue
Celebrate wit, wisdom and what it means to be a man with our Heroes issue, out now.
Esquire’s June issue is a celebration of modern-day heroes: the men (plus one woman) who have provoked, challenged, entertained, enlightened and inspired us.
Alongside five exclusive covers, we’ve raided the archives of Esquire US to bring you the greatest hits from their famous ‘What I’ve Learned’ series, in which the great and the good (and not so good) speak candidly about life and how they’ve lived it.
So we find out Jack Nicholson hates advice (unless he’s giving it), David Bowie thinks you can never know who you are (an old lady once mistook him for Elton John), and Richard Branson recommends not having a circumcision at 24 (and then watching Jane Fonda in Barbarella).
All this, plus Keith Richards, Michael Caine, Johnny Depp, Neil Young, Clint Eastwood and Pamela Anderson (“My breasts have a career. I’m just tagging along”).
The June issue of Esquire is on newsstands now. Also available as a digital edition this week.
