Publisher's Summary

The stylish, exuberant, and remarkably sweet confession of one of the most famous groupies of the 1960s and 70s is back 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.

Dont waste your credits

Proof that not all authors should be allowed to narrate their own books. As if a story about a girl with zero self esteem and daddy issues is not boring enough, her performance is terrible and not up to Audible standards. This book can be summed up as 11 hours and a credit that I will never get back. Don't waste either, find a different book.

Dont waste your money...........please

Easily the worst audible book I have purchased, horrible narration by the author, mostly reads from her diary from the 60's, 70's and 80's, poor, very poor. I kept skipping ahead thinking there was merit for someone to actually publish this but there are NO interesting chapters, none!!!!
