Pamela Des Barres - Episode 359

Steve Cooper talks with writer/groupie Pamela Des Barres. Pamela is known as the World’s Most Famous Groupie or Queen of the Groupies, but has many other facets, fascinations and unique talents. Known mostly for her heady dalliances and friendships with classic rock’s elite dandies in the 60s and 70s, she presciently kept copious diaries about those madcap revolutionary days and nights. Pamela has written four books, I'm With the Band, Take Another Little Piece of my Heart, Rock Bottom: Dark Secrets in Music Babylon and Let's Spend the Night Together: Backstage Secrets of Rock Muses and Supergroupies. Known as Miss Pamela, she has shared her history on endless TV and radio shows and documentaries, including two memorable stints with both Oprah and Larry King. Last year she wrote and produced an hour-long VH1 Doc interviewing an array of supergroupies based on her most recent book. She has been teaching ongoing women’s writing workshops in Los Angeles and all over the country for twelve years, inspiring like-minded dolls to share their desire, stories and ideas in a totally safe environment. She calls these writing parties Groupie Therapy. And as an ordained minister, Pamela performs unique one-of-a-kind rock & roll weddings.
