"...my tits and ass with soul, baby."
Sweat. Drugs. Rock & roll. Semen.
Pamela Des Barres was the most famous rock & roll groupie of the 1960s and 1970s.
When she was in high school, during the early 1960s, Miss Pamela worshipped rock gods, such as Elvis, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. The Southern California teenager used to fantasize about Mick Jagger in particular and even submitted a painting of his penis for a high school art class project. (She received an A).
A couple years later, by mingling hardcore with the rock music scene on the Sunset Strip, the stunning blonde finally got the opportunity to compare her painting with the real deal. Many times.
Her sexual conquests, in addition to Mick Jagger, included Jim Morrison, Jimmy Page, and Keith Moon.
When she wasn't busy befriending legendary musicians, Miss Pamela secured the position as a nanny for Frank Zappa's children. She became close friends with him and his family.
Frank Zappa even made her a member of his all-girl group, the GTOs, which was his opening act. The act was mostly performance art, since none of the beautiful young women could sing or play instruments. Eventually, the group disbanded because some of the members were arrested for drug possession.
The group only propelled her fame and lust for attention even further. In the 1970s, Miss Pamela began an acting career, appearing in movies, commercials, and a soap opera.
In the late 1970s, Miss Pamela began to grow up. She married musician Michael Des Barres in 1977, and they had a son a year later.
In 1987 she went on to write the best-selling memoir, "I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie." It was followed up by the best-selling "Take Another Little Piece of my Heart: A Groupie Grows Up" in 1993. The acclaimed author also wrote pieces for Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and Playgirl.
Miss Pamela is currently an ordained minister, who performs rock and roll weddings around the US. She also teaches creative writing workshops around the country as well.
Right now, HBO is creating a comedy-drama show titled, "I'm With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie" which is going to star Zooey Deschanel as Miss Pamela. It is based on her best-selling memoir of the same name.
