“I know people have issues with rock stars. It’s a different kind of lifestyle,” Pamela Des Barres told me confidently over the phone. See, Pamela Des Barres is a rock-and-roll historian, a musician and the world’s most famous groupie. A living legend who became a face of rock’s most dazzling era, Des Barres exalted the word “groupie”—once pejorative—into a badge of honor. Like so many other terms meant to disparage women, Des Barres helped to reclaim the word as one of empowerment.
"They thought of us as submissive to these people, which was anything but submissive. It was not like that at all. Most groupies I know, it’s their glory days."
