4.0 out of 5 stars Frank and Funny Memoir
I love the music, history, fashion and vibe the 60's have cast over society since. As a seventies child i've had to explore the 60's through the recordings and backward gaze of those who were there. Ive explored mainly through music, film and literature, and Pamela Des Barres name is one i often came across. I finally got round to reading this and was surprised to find...

3.0 out of 5 stars I Don't Get the Hype
I didn't hate this book but at the same time I was slightly disappointed by it. I don't really see why this is considered such a classic. I have nothing against Pamela Des Barres choosing to have flings with musicians and people who put her down for it need to concentrate on the people in life who are actually damaging society not a young woman choosing to explore her...

This review is from: I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie (Paperback)
I have just finished this book and found it totally brilliant!! ''Miss P'' manages to go into great detail about her relationships with some of rocks greatest without being the least bit sleazy! Definately the best rock book I have ever read and im now looking forward to reading everything else she has written!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bring out the flower child you, 22 Nov 2006
This review is from: I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book revealing more about the 60s and what it took to be a flower child than many biographies that have fallen from the shelf.

Lady Pamela has a friendly writing style that effortlessly engages you making you laugh, love and cry at the wild excesses at the birth of rock.

The long list of mega famous people she met, kissed and slept with is impressive and could lead you to leap to buy this book.

However being a wild one in the decade of decadence is not as exciting as the back cover would have you believe. Many of the wonderous experiences become quite mundane as encounters with Frank Zappa, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger et al are told in the same fashion over and over again. The friendly style becomes more and more irritatingly femine as the stories whine on and the book unfortunately becomes a chore.

Simple Review: Incredible tales litter a sweet 1960s diary that ultimately leaves you wanting more.
