With the band
New York Post ^ | December 14, 2010 | Linda Stasi

Ever wondered what it is like to sleep with, service, travel or live with a rock star -- or maybe a whole band of them?

Tonight, VH1 introduces you to the groupies who have done just that -- or, should I say, have done just them?

Pamela Des Barres -- author of five best-selling books on and about her time as the traveling companion, sometime girlfriend and sometime one-night stand of the most infamous rockers -- tracks down the other groupies who made their names on their backs, backing up the best bands of the 1960s, '70s and '80s.

I guess a person can make money writing a book about almost anything these days as long as it has a scuzzy underpinning.

Barney Frank's first printing will probably be in the millions.

Years ago I managed a night club where we had live bands on the weekends. We had a loyal following of young women who’s self appointed job it was to sleep with the band, which we called “band-aids”. Part of my job was to keep the band-aids out of the dressing areas which turned out to be a full time job.

Can we just call her a whore already? She’s lead a disgusting life as a semen receptacle for overgrown children disguised as men.

I'm not sure if that term was meant for one person or multiple but Des Barres has been mentioned more so as a "groupie." This is a quote from her book:

"We inspired the guys as much as we were inspired by them. It was very equal. They loved us because we dared to have a blast. We looked after them, picked their clothes and showed them the best restaurants to go to.

Presumably, she’s gotten paid for all the books she’s written about slutting it up with rock stars...

Or is this kind of like “being paid for your time”?

“things that pass for entertainment”

No, this type of thing is at the core of entertainment. Audiences have been entertained by animals eating people, people falling from skyscrapers, all sorts of sex on display, enactments of all sorts of unlawful, unhealthy, risky, immoral behavior.

Look at the successful cable channels and many of the successful TV shows. The one-and-only goal of entertainment is to hold the audience to what is being presented.
