Pamela des barres dating
In this book, Des Barres guides women through the process of writing their memoirs.
She has developed exercises to help her -dolls- recall, remember, relive, and reveal their memories, transgressions, temptations, their sleepless nights and brilliant afternoons, loves and losses, fears and regrets, secrets, sins, and sorrows.
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 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.
The assignments in Femoir have proven incredibly cathartic for her students.
Just as intimate as one of her in-person workshops, this book includes some of Des Barres's own stories, as well as those of the women she's taught.

The groupies today have a frustrating time unless they become musicians themselves, which a lot of them do. They become photographers and work for magazines to meet the guys in different ways.” Be Determined “I had a real shy streak. A great artist touches you in a place that…once you’re touched that way, you want more.” Age Is Just A Number “My last two boyfriends were musicians and twenty years younger than me. I’d like to get a hold of Bob Dylan again.” Don’t Let Heartbreak Stop You “Heartbreak’s heartbreak, connections are connections, and chemistry’s chemistry.
With her established position in the music scene, it wasn’t long before she became a legend in her own right chased by men like Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, who passed her a sexy note in a club. They were passing a joint around and I had to pretend I was smoking it. I was just determined to get near the people who made me feel so good.
This intimate account of 24 legendary groupies reveals what went on behind the closed doors of rock stars from Elvis to Marilyn Manson.
