About the book:
Sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll – Pamela des Barres led a wild life. Widely regarded as a feminist classic and the ultimate testimony to the reckless and carefree attitude of the rock ‘n’ roll renaissance of the 60s and 70s, des Barres’ iconic memoir, I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie has stood the test of time.
With her little black book reading like a who’s who of veritable rock gods, her affairs with the likes of Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, and Jim Morrison, among others, earned her the status as one of the most infamous groupies of all time. Throw in her tenure as a member of the GTO’s, the girl group masterminded by Frank Zappa, and you have an enthralling tale of excess and debauchery, all told by the ‘Queen of the Groupies’ herself.
Warm, witty, and sexy, this charming updated version of the classic kiss-and-tell-all is now being released with previously unread material. With the original book being named as one of the Top 20 books in Billboard’s 100 Greatest Music Books of All Time, I’m With the Band: Confessions Of A Groupie is the ultimate behind-the-curtains look for music lovers everywhere.
Praise for I’m With the Band:
“…it’s satisfying to hear about Jimmy Page’s dependence on his portable crimping iron, and Mick Jagger’s attempt to use the Altamont fan’s death to get Pamela into a threesome (“to take the load off his mind”)”
– The Guardian
“She charms me every time she refuses to regret. And she regrets nothing.”
— Los Angeles Times
I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie is available in all good bookstores now.
