I'm With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie

by Pamela Des Barres

"I couldn't have done it better myself. I will always love you, Miss Pamela, and again a thousand apologies for the premature ejaculation." --Robert Plant

"Miss Pamela knows whereof she speaks--she always was, and still is, murder in high heels! . . . And she knows a thing or two about rock stars . . . a thing or two! Thank God for Miss Pamela." --Gene Simmons, KISS

"As a chronicle of the 60's and 70's L.A. rock scene, an unofficial history of female fandom, a sexual memoir of a girl coming of age at the height of the 60's love power and the voice of a misunderstood and maligned rock subculture, I'm with the Band is one of the most important, revealing and unabashedly honest books about rock ever written." --Boston Phoenix

"Young, in heat, and ready to rock: Miss Pamela, the most beautiful and famous of the groupies. Her memoir of her life with rock stars is funny, bittersweet, and tender-hearted." --Stephen Davis, author of Hammer of the Gods

"This irresistible sexual memoir of rock's golden age doesn't just name names, it sings them out. . . . [Pamela Des Barres] recounts her sexual adventures with an unabashed gusto more common to male memoirs, a rare treat in itself." --Kurt Loder, Rolling Stone

Pamela Des Barres has become a spokesperson for her generation, an authority on classic rock and the freewheelin' rock 'n' roll lifestyle. She has written for the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, and other magazines and is working on her fourth book.
