This model had affairs with three members of the Rolling Stones (Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards) and was rumored to have inspired several of their songs (including “Angie,” “You Got the Silver” and “Gimmee Shelter”). She was and is best friends with another famous groupie, Marianne Faithfull.
“Miss” Pamela Des Barres
This famous groupie had affairs with Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Waylon Jennings, Chris Hillman, and Noel Redding, traveled with Led Zeppelin, lived with Don Johnson, turned down a date with Elvis Presley, and was close friends with Robert Plant, Ray Davies, and Frank Zappa.
She was a fixture on the Sunset Strip and an avid Led Zeppelin groupie.
I just finished reading Wonderful Tonight, Pattie’s memoir about her modeling career and how she came upon meeting her two husbands, George Harrison and Eric Clapton. The inspiration for the song “Layla, ” she is not as band-aid-like as some of these other groupies, but she is a musician magnet nonetheless.
