Aleister Crowley tangentially mentioned in a Rolling Stone cover story

Aleister Crowley tangentially mentioned in a Rolling Stone cover story in an anecdote about a row between David Bowie and Jimmy Page at “Cover Story Excerpt: David Bowie“.

“He lived for a time in a Manhattan town house, but after a tense conflict there one night with Jimmy Page, Bowie believed that the Led Zeppelin guitarist — who owned the English home of late black-magic philosopher Aleister Crowley — had put his soul in peril.”

Interestingly, the author chooses to call Crowley a “black-magic philosopher”, not a “magician” but still preserving the connotation of evil by relying on the aspersion and assertion of “black-magic”.
