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.

This book is a highly entertaining, fun read, although I personally think that "I'm With The Band" was better written. While some of the women interviewed come across as relatable and down to earth, there are a few that seem to have an inflated sense of self-importance (including Ms. Des Barres, who seems to be playing a non-stop reel of her famous encounters in her head and just lives for the moment when Robert Plant says "Miss Pamela" onstage--although for all we know he could have been saying "I need an enema"). Another thing I found really annoying is the constant use of the word "muse" and comparison to women like Patti Boyd and Marianne Faithfull, neither of whom are groupies. While I don't doubt that some of the women featured in the book inspired creativity, it seems like the only thing others inspired was a hard on. A few of the stories are just gross, and others are just plain crazy, such as the girl who belives she has a telepathic connection with a certain rock star and...
In this chornicle ,America's most famous groupie, Miss Pamela, becomes a reporter, interviewing other women (and one man) who have shared encounters with the famous (well some) names in rock and roll. Each chapter is a seperate story unto itself. The one thing I did notice as the book progresses, as Pamela wrote the book in chronological order; from the woman who spent some time with Elvis in the beginning of his career in the 1950s to one who spent time with Kid Rock forty years later, and all those in between; is how the less popular the rocker is, the less class the groupie seems to have. Just an observation. It just seems the innocence of those rock and roll loving girls of the 60s and 70s was totally lost in the following decades. Still this book is a fun and interesting look into the rock and roll scene and Pamela does a good job of telling it.
This salacious book by Pamela De Barres is a bit repetitive. However, it is an easy read but reading similar stories over and over again gets tiresome. Her other books are far better than this one.
