Product description

Pamela Des Barres, celebrated "queen of the groupies," chronicled her adventures with rock stars in her bestseller "I'm with the Band. "This book picks up where that one left off, with Pamela embarking on marriage and motherhood, all the while sharing quarters and making friends with stars: Don Johnson, Steve Jones, Sylvester Stallone, Bob Dylan, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bernhard. But this is a survivor's story--about the anguish of coping with loved ones' addictions, about suffering divorce, about the joys and terrors of raising a gifted son. And Pamela comes through it all with her grace, charm, and generous sense of humor intact. Now updated to include the next sixteen years of Pamela's adventures, this is a rollicking, piquant, and heartbreaking memoir.

Review quote

"Rock's groupie supreme . . . offers new insights into the particulars of the sexual engine that drives rock, this time from the wiser perspective of a mature Miss Pamela. Ms. Des Barres's decision to tell her story is an act of liberation in today's post-feminist terms. . . . There's still much to learn from Ms. Des Barres about the rock world's hidden history and its groundings in desire." --"The""New York Times"
