I'm with the band: Rock's most famous groupies tell all for VH1 documentary 'Letĺs Spend the Night..
LA Times ^ | December 15, 2010 | Gerrick D. Kennedy

...Adapted from Pamela Des Barres' bestselling book... the doc follows Des Barres... as she travels across the country reconnecting and reminiscing with the women who lived up to their reputations.

...“Rock 'n’ roll is art, but it also means sex, so it’s just the perfect combination -- especially for the young teenage girl. I remember when Mick Jagger lit me up when I was 15, and I thought, 'OK, I want some of that.' [But] our relationship was purely sexual.” Des Barres was motivated to log her experiences, and those of her pals, because she felt the word "groupie" had become something tawdry, especially as reality shows featuring rock stars looking for love in a house full of women looking for fame became the norm.

...Her cross-country journey took her to Utah to see Tura Satana, the woman who taught Elvis a few tricks in the boudoir; Seattle, where Robert Plant's muse Michele Overman resides; Chicago, the home of iconic groupie Cynthia Plaster Caster; California to meet Cassandra Peterson, who was a well-known groupie before becoming Elvira; and Arkansas, to visit the famous Connie Hamzy, known solely as “Sweet Connie.”

...“Look, we’re not hookers, we loved the glamour,” she clarifies in the film when pressed about her conquests. “We’re getting to hang with celebrities. I’m 55 years old, so I don’t do the things I used to. I don’t look the way I used to. There aren’t women who could do what me or Pamela does. How many songs on the radio have a gal's name in it?”

Sweet Connie never minces her words -- ever. She boasts that she’s bedded -- or serviced -- anywhere from 700 to 1,000 musicians and their crew guys. She says she still gets requests from bands, which she is happy to oblige...

There is a reason for that.

And Viacom is there to spread the legacy to the public. From the sound of it, this is a “response” to other programming on VH1 or MTV which also promotes the lifestyle.

Wish they’d promote MUSIC.

No you aren’t dear, like the movie starlets of old, you’re being passed around as a sexual party favor. You aren’t hanging out with them in terms of parties as guests.

Seems to gloss over just how young they were when they began as well.
