Mick Jagger‘s friendship with the late David Bowie is stuff of legend. It was even immortalized in the Chris Anderson-penned biography Jagger, Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger. But what the musician will miss the most about his fellow icon are “the good times” they had together. 

Specifically, “We used to go out in New York a lot. We used to go out dancing all the time,” he told Entertainment Tonight during the premiere of HBO’s Vinyl, on which he served as executive producer. He continued, “We had fun times. It’s nice to remember them.”

For Jagger’s son, 30-year-old actor James, one of his fondest memories is the “Dancing in the Street” music video. Jagger and Bowie produced the song in 1985 for the Live Aid famine relief. “Whenever I’m feeling blue, I just google ‘Dancing in the Street,’ and it makes me laugh. It’s so ’80s, it’s amazing,” James said. 

In a statement released to EW earlier this week, Jagger said, “David was always an inspiration to me and a true original. He was wonderfully shameless in his work we had so many good times together…he was my friend, I will never forget him.”
