Miss Pamela

Gorgeous Miss Pamela

Pop the champagne y’all, tonight is the television premiere of Pamela Des Barres‘ Vh1 Rock Doc Let’s Spend the Night Together. The 90-minute documentary will follow the World’s Most Famous Groupie as she travels across the country visiting some of her contemporaries from the golden age of Rock & Roll groupiedom. It’s pretty much guaranteed to be amazing. But I may be biased…

I’ve been crazy about Miss P ever since I read her tell-all classic I’m With the Band (featured in this site’s Library section)  I think I read it for the first time when I was about 19 and it threw me into a state of depression for weeks. I was so enamored of her fabulous rock & roll life and her uncanny ability to be at just the right place at just the right time (Sunset Strip, 1967 anyone?). All of a sudden my life as a college co-ed felt incredibly lacking. But once the depression passed her book actually inspired me to accomplish some backstage access feats of my own (though, unlike Miss Pamela’s they have been decidedly PG…)

I had the great pleasure of meeting Miss Pamela in October at a writing workshop she held here in Austin. Though I spent most of the time in awestruck awkward silence she was just as sweet as could be and a total kick. I have no doubt she’s got some real gems for us in tonight’s documentary so don’t miss it!

Rock Docs Episode 127 “Let’s Spend the Night Together” airs tonight on Vh1 at 8:30/7:30 Central.

    The B-Side to “Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys” should have been, “Daddy’s Don’t Let Your Daughters Grow Up to be Groupies”.

    I never read her book, but have read about her exploits in countless other stories of people who have “crossed her path”.

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to look when they will show this here in London. Cheers.
