But Bill,….why man?



You of course remember and are a bit curious about the mercurial, reclusive, quiet, gum – chewing  former Bass player for The Rolling Stones Bill Wyman?  When it came to the success and fame of the Stones Bill was, at best indifferent .  Bill avoided most of the trappings of a rock stars life, while he enjoyed a drink only once in a while and hardly touched POT Wyman claimed he was addicted to girls! In fact in 2001 Maxim magazine put him in the top 10 for bedding women, at that time Wyman asserts he had slept with over 1000 women. But, dear reader get out your calculator and slide rule cuz here’s where it gets complicated. Bill got married to his first wife Diane in 1959, they had a son Stephen Paul Wyman in 1962 and the couple was divorced by 1969.

On 2 June 1989, aged 52, Wyman married 18 YEAR OLD Mandy Smith, whom he had been dating since she was 13 and he was 47 years old. According to Smith, their relationship was sexually consummated when she was 14 years old!  “YIKES” Their relationship was the subject of considerable media attention until it ended in 1993 when he met Susanne Accosta, 37 years his junior, married her and had three daughters!

Ahh, but here’s where it gets even stranger?  Stephen Paul, Bill Wymans first son would grow up to Marry Mandy Smith’s Mother, Patsy Smith. You got that? Yep!, Bill Wymans son, grew up and married his Step- Mothers MOTHER!……or, you can say he married his dad’s “Mother in Law”!  Stephen Paul Wyman was 31  Patsy was 49 !!!

We’d love to hear your opinion or story about Bill Wyman Or perhaps you were married to him ?
