Product description

Since rock's beginnings, there have been groupies. These chosen few women who bed, but not often wed, the musicians of their dreams are almost as much a part of music history as the musicians themselves. Pamela Des Barres, the world's foremost supergroupie, here offers an all-access backstage pass to the world of rock stars and the women who love them. Having had her own affairs with legends such as Keith Moon and Jimmy Page--as documented in her bestselling memoir "I'm with the Band"--Pamela now turns the spotlight onto other women who have found their way into the hearts and bedrooms of some of the world's greatest musicians. In "Let's Spend the Night Together, "she tells, in their own words, the stories of these amazing women who went way beyond the one-night stand. Here you'll get to know 24 outrageous groupies, including - Tura Satana, Miss Japan Beautiful, who taught Elvis how to dance and gave him lessons in lovemaking- Cassandra Peterson, aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, who tangled with Tom Jones in Sin City- Soulful Miss Mercy, who discovered that not only does the rest of the world listen to Al Green while making love--so does Al Green- Cynthia Plaster Caster, who redefined art and made history when Jimi Hendrix plunged his member into her plaster mold- The mysterious Miss B, who reveals Kurt Cobain's penchant for lip gloss and pantyhose- and over a dozen more

Review quote

"The same kind of down-and-dirty details that made Des Barres's previous work so raunchily entertaining. Nasty fun from a bunch of sex kittens who've been there, done them." "--Kirkus Reviews"
