What links the song "Heroes" to the album "Jazz"?
It's a tad tenuous but is it the Berlin Wall? Bowie's "heroes" kissed by the wall and Roger got the idea for the cover of Jazz by a similar design on the wall. Do I win a prize?
You are correct. Specifically, both were inspired by looking at the Berlin Wall. Roger saw the graffiti, Bowie saw someone (possibly Tony Visconti) kissing his girlfriend by the wall.
Although the story I heard about Roger was that he saw graffiti of simply the word 'jazz', and found it curious that someone would risk being shot to write that.
