Product Description

Review

"She charms me every time she refuses to regret. And she regrets nothing."  —Los Angeles Times



"Sunny, uninhibited prose."  —Slate.com


"Her prose is...glittery, raw and real."  —Indie-music.com


"Should spur enough interest...that...her story can be made into the movie it needs to be."  —The WOW Report


"Granted it's gossipy, but it's also a worthwhile document of the blossoming of an innocent California flower-child."  —Star Tribune


"Eminently readable, offering all the fun of a trashy read without resorting to sensationalism or mean-spiritedness." —North Bay Bohemian


"A must-read for all lovers of great music and men."  —Playgirl

I wanted to read this book because I'm a huge fan of Robert Plant. I thought the book was okay. I actually thought it seemed a bit misleading when I read the endorsement on the back by Robert Plant. The book doesn't detail anything that may or may not have occurred between Ms. Des Barres and Mr. Plant. I know he was married at the time so I guess he might not have been as bad as he was sometimes portrayed. I also felt sorry for Ms. Des Barres at times. She seemed like such a sweet girl who just wanted someone to love her. I wish she had been treated with the respect she deserved. I know a lot of people would say she chose that lifestyle, but remember she was very young and with that comes foolishness and naivety. She seems like a nice lady and I wish her all the best.

I had just finished reading "The Dirt" and wanted to read more books on the same topic - life behind the scenes with rock stars.
I found this book difficult to get through because it was like reading a dippy 12 year old girls diary, who had managed to "Forrest gumped" her way into meeting and being with some really amazing rock stars.
I realize at the beginning of the book she is quote young, but she never seems to mature throughout the book.
It is pretty bad that Motley Crue, with all they have put themselves through, wrote a better book then this

Let me just say that while the life of a rock-n-roll groupie isn't one I've ever aspired to, there is something about it that is so tantalzing that I had to read this book. And, boy, what a book it is! I'm With the Band is about being part of the band without playing an instrument or singing. It's about hanging out and waiting durning sound checks and it's about the all the other groupies who are dying to take your place. It's an eye-opening read, though one well worth it. Another good one: Take Your Shirt Off: A Novel of Hollywood.

Ms. Des Barres has clearly had an interesting life, and it was interesting to hear about the musicians she was with and the atmosphere she lived in, but I felt like there was never a point that either went into extended detail so that you felt you were at the party, or a deep personal reflection. It felt quite surface, but I applaud her attempt at writing about positive female sexuality.

Poor Pamela - an ordinary girl with a rather extraordinary past. Very interesting and sometimes shocking. I enjoyed every word.
