PAMELA DES BARRES
talk & booksigning for "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart: A Groupie Grows Up"
Thursday, October 2 at 7:30 pm
In "I'm with the Band," Pamela Des Barres chronicled her lustful liaisons with such rock legends as Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page and Keith Moon. "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart: A Groupie Grows Up" is it’s candid sequel. Updated to include escapades covering the last 16 years, this rollicking and sometimes heartbreaking follow-up documents Des Barres' struggles with marriage and motherhood and encounters with the likes of Bob Dylan and Sylvester Stallone.
Pamela Des Barres has been described as “Queen of the groupies.” As a member of Frank Zappa’s performance art / groupie-group The GTO’s, Des Barres and her flamboyant sisters released the 1969 cult-classic album, "Permanent Damage." Today, she is an Internet columnist, television personality, and the author of the bestselling 1987 memoir "I’m with the Band." And she still loves music of all kinds.
