Comments
Born in Hong Kong and originally known as Amanda Tapp, Lear's birthdate has also been given as November 18, 1939. Lear started a career as a fashion model in the mid-1960s and came to public attention as the model for the cover of Roxy Music's For Your Pleasure. Although she was Salvador Dali's muse and mistress throughout the 1960s and 1970s, she was romantically linked to Brian Jones and was the inspiration for Miss Amanda Jones. Lear also carried on a year long affair with David Bowie, who paid for singing and dancing lessons, launching her musical career in disco and Euro-pop.
