The 10 Sexiest Famed Groupies in Rock History Keith Moon with Pamela Des Barres

2. Pamela Des Barres

Groupie of: Jim Morrison (The Doors), Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Keith Moon (The Who), Nick St. Nicholas (Steppenwolf), Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience), Chris Hillman (The Byrds), Gram Parsons (The Byrds), Waylon Jennings

Pamela gained entry to the rock-star world when she met Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet), who introduced her to Frank Zappa. She was quickly sucked into the Sunset Strip scene, and befriended (ahem) numerous musicians who were on the rise. Zappa made her one of the members of the GTOs (Girls Together Outrageously), a musical act he put together consisting of enthusiastic female devotees, a "groupie group."

Des Barres kept journals throughout her wild and crazy years, and later blew the lid off the groupie experience with her 1987 memoir I'm With the Band, considered the Citizen Kane of groupie books.
