4.0 out of 5 stars A decent sequel 28 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read Pamela's first book and was infatuated with her and her life so decided I had to buy this, the sequel. It didn't grip me the way the first one did but I still enjoyed reading it. A very interesting lady living the rock and roll lifestyle most only dream of.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first one. 26 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved 'I'm With The Band' - it sucked you into the heady 1960s world of music, hippies, velvet dresses, sex, drugs and flower power. She "hung out" with Alice Cooper, Frank Zappa, Keith Moon, Mick Jagger...
But I felt this one was a little boring. I preferred the stories of when she was a young, naive groupie having sex with more famous rockstars (see above) but this book details her life with her arguably less famous husband Michael de Barres.
It's worth reading but dissapointing after her first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is this book out of print? 28 Dec 2000
By "jaya163" - Published on Amazon.com
I just read this book, having recently won a copy on eBay. What a shame it is no longer in print; much as I loved I'm With the Band, I enjoyed this well-written sequel even more for its incisive, introspective look at evolving as a person and learning to make peace with the past. To all the hypocrites who condemn Pamela Des Barres as an immoral bimbo, I say, we've all had incidents in our past, sexual and otherwise, that we are not necessarily proud of or would have done differently had we been older and wiser. Des Barres was extremely brave to chronicle her failing marriage, becoming a mother, death of her father, search for spirituality, and learning to see her own shortcomings-codependency and avoidance of confrontation at any cost-with brutal honesty as well as a sense of humor and optimism. Details of Des Barres' Hollywood lifestle, such as being friends with such celebrities as the Zappa family and many others, also makes this book a fascinating read. However, what really hit home for me were the universal experiences that every human being goes through: the journey of finding one's sense of self-worth and purpose, learning to work through life's pain and setbacks to be strong and change for the better (always easier said than done!),and learning to find joy in every moment of every day. Pamela Des Barres, with her hard-won inner strength, sweet nature and spirit of adventure, is truly an inspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars She's cute honest and insightful - this is an eye opener 11 April 2006
By kooky Kid - Published on Amazon.com
C'mon- she's not a PHD candidate at some university- this is not critical literature- it's just her rock and roll story. I found it very telling that she lived for so many years as a codependant housewife in a dysfunctional high profile relationship. A very intriging follow up to her first book. I like her and I liked the book, (as well as I'm with the Band.)The two books are an eye opener to just how macho and swaggering the rockers of old really are. Why begrudge Pamela?

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!! 9 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Miss Pamela shows that she has come of age in several different ways with this autobiographical sequel to I'm With The Band. Her marriage to Michael Des Barres, the birth of their son Nicholas, and her daily struggles with career, marriage, and friends make this a most intresting read. Illuminated with her constant quests for truth in her spirituality, this is much more than a "groupie tells all" sequel. She is at once eager and vulnerable, wise-cracking and humble. I'm waiting for part 3!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldnt put the book down 6 Sep 2008
By Deborah M. Buchanan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I strongly urge all women to buy this book, I couldnt put it down. Pamela is so bravely honest about her life and writes as if your talking to your best friend one on one. I found myself going on a journey with her in this book. For those who need to know how hot Mick Jagger was calm down its in there but theres so much more to this woman. Her positive vibrant spirit jumps out at you within these pages, a spirit that as you read the book your drawn to and you just want her to keep writing more. Pamela is so very creative in her writing she makes you feel every ounce of her experience. In this book you can really relate to her in so many ways and we can all gain by her positive strength and spirit. Pamela shines a white light, a light that will leave you wanting more. This is a must read, you'll enjoy every moment, every page every word and even though Pamela has led a limelight life you can still relate to her as a woman on a journey. I couldnt put it down and Im a hard cookie to crack. I cant wait for her write again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Fun, Fun Read!! 20 Aug 2008
By Leigh H. Buck - Published on Amazon.com
What a great read!! I loved every page of this book!! Pamela writes so honestly and shares so much personal stuff in a way that boggles my mind. I wouldn't have the courage to write and publish a book this personal. Her writing is insightful, strong and laugh out loud funny.
