Ken Boxer Live welcomes our next guest, former 1960’s-era groupie, Pamela des Barres. In introducing her I quote Katie Bain from noisey.vice.com:

“Pamela Des Barres is most often remembered for having sex with Mick Jagger. And Jimmy Page. And Keith Moon. And Waylon Jennings. And a bunch of other rock gods in between. Des Barres carved out her place in rock ‘n’ roll history as one of LA’s most prolific groupies during the decadent era when the members of Led Zeppelin rode motorcycles down hotel hallways and musicians got crazy rich off of record sales. But she also made music herself as a member of The GTOs (Girls Together Outrageously), a band made up of a bunch of groupies, as organized by Frank Zappa (Des Barres used to babysit his kids). In pictures from the era, Des Barres is an ethereal, glowing redhead in silk vintage wear—exactly the kind of woman you’d want to spend time with if you were a virile young rock star in town for the week.”

We all look forward to des Barres’s filling in the details with her incredible memories of those times.
