What I've Been Reading : Pamela Des Barres
One of my goals this year has been to read more and to be honest, I haven't been doing extremely well! I've only finished one book so far and I had a goal to read a book a month. But that doesn't mean I can't catch back up to that goal soon! I just wanted to put together a post to let you know what I've finished, what I'm currently reading and what I want to read!
What I've Read : I'm With The Band
A few months ago, I was really in the mood to read some 1960's non fiction. Very specific, I know! But I've always been obsessed with the 60's, specifically 1960's rock bands. So I did a little search on Amazon and came across the author Pamela Des Barres. She was a rock groupie in the 60's & 70's and she is still a goddess. She was also one of the inspirations for Kate Hudson's character, Penny Lane in the 2000 film Almost Famous (one of my favorite films ever!) She canoodled with the likes of Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Jim Morrison and Noel Redding. This book is advertised as a tell-all and that is soooooo true! I will definitely be reading this many times over again!
What I'm Reading : Take Another Little Piece of My Heart
This book is about what happened after I'm With The Band ended. I've found this book to be a lot more personal than Pamela's first (if that is even possible!) But it dives into her relationship with her then husband Michael Des Barres and what it's like to be a "grown-up groupie."
Like I said earlier, I'm obsessed with groupie stories and learning what really happened in the lives of these women. This book is a compilation of stories from many different groupies and muses who explain their first hand experiences with the worlds most famous rock stars. And I can't wait to read it!
What are you currently reading? I'd love any suggestions!
