Overview

I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie by Pamela Des Barres


The stylish, exuberant, and remarkably sweet confession of one of the most famous groupies of the 1960s and 70s is back in print in this new edition that includes an afterword on the author's last 15 years of adventures. As soon as she graduated from high school, Pamela Des Barres headed for the Sunset Strip, where she knocked on rock stars' backstage doors and immersed herself in the drugs, danger, and ecstasy of the freewheeling 1960s. Over the next 10 years she had affairs with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Waylon Jennings, Chris Hillman, Noel Redding, and Jim Morrison, among others. She traveled with Led Zeppelin; lived in sin with Don Johnson; turned down a date with Elvis Presley; and was close friends with Robert Plant, Gram Parsons, Ray Davies, and Frank Zappa. As a member of the GTO's, a girl group masterminded by Frank Zappa, she was in the thick of the most revolutionary renaissance in the history of modern popular music. Warm, witty, and sexy, this kiss-and-tell–all stands out as the perfect chronicle of one of rock 'n' roll's most thrilling eras.

This book is one of the best I have ever read. The experiances that Pamela Des Barres encounters are surreal and outstanding to say the least. In this book she shows that she is not just a 'groupie' that had one night stands, she was a very heartfelt girl who had real relationships with these rock gods. She got to see who they really are behind the scenes and get to know them on a more personal level other than just sex. Amazing.

I will never listen to Led Zeppelin the same way anymore. I will probably think of Miss Pamela every time I hear one of their songs. And the Stones, the Doors, the Birds, and many others. This girl got around! I had a hard time putting the book down every time I was reading. It's not that it's extremely well written, but gosh, I just wanted to know, "What next?" There were some very interesting events! I have to admit, admit, admit that I got tired of her writing style the way she repeat, repeat, repeated things, and the teen angst diary entries got on my nerves. But I just had to know which rock legend she would encounter next. I have to say, I'm surprised she doesn't have brain damage or AIDS from all of the sex, drugs, (and rock-n-roll)! This is my my typical read, but isn't that what book clubs are for?

I had to force myself to finish this book. I found it so completely uninteresting. A waste of time and money.

While this book is great out of the gate, it lags in the middle and then gets downright slow, a must read for rock history fans if you can through it without falling asleep.

This book was so boring. I know about Pamela's past, so I was really excited to read this book. Who wouldn't want to read the sexy details of rock star trysts. This was a long diatribe of a silly girl, who clearly was never taught the value of her own mind, and sexual power. What a snoozefest!! The most interesting part was the foreward by Dave Navarro. Now his book I would really like to read.
