Let's face it, if you were ever in a band, even if it was just a crappy garage band that played children’s birthday parties, you've had fantasies of being a rock star, mostly because of the groupies and the adoring fans. Groupies are the backbone for the rock and roll lifestyle, for without them shitty cover bands just wouldn't be so inspired playing Led Zeppelin tunes at a High School dance. We at Woodrocket salute these women and honor their contributions to music. The following are the most notorious rock groupies of all time.
A.K.A. the Chick on the Car in the Whitesnake video for the song “Here I Go Again”. Although Tawny is more known for her stint as Whitesnake’s video vixen (she was married to lead singer, David Coverdale for 2 years), Tawny has also had the pleasure of bedding some of the hottest names in the ‘80s. Sure, she enjoyed fucking around with Hair Metal guys like Tommy Lee and Robbin Crosby from Ratt, but she also hooked up with synth pop pretty boy, John Taylor from Duran Duran.
Cynthia Plaster Caster
Even groupies need a schtick in order for them to make a name for themselves (Giving good head alone does not make a good groupie, but it definitely helps). Cynthia Plaster Caster’s schtick involved dick, but not fucking or sucking them. No, this groupie made plaster casts of some of rock’s biggest stars spanning the '60s all the way through the '90s, including legends such as Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison. She wasn’t sexy in the conventional sense (She was a solid 4 if you get what I’m saying), but who’s going to turn down the opportunity to have their schlong preserved for the archives?
At 61, Bebe Buell is still hot as hell. She started her career at 17 as a model with the famed Ford agency and a few short years later, she became Playboy’s playmate of the month (November 1974). She rejects the term groupie (come on), but has dated Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Rod Stewart and Jimmy Page. Oh, she also had a child with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler – Liv Tyler.
Pamela Des Barres
Known as Miss Pamela of LA, Pamela Des Barres shared her rock and roll conquests and stories in her best selling memoir, “I’m With the Band”. She’s hooked up with Keith Moon, Mick Jagger and a litany of other classic rock icons. However, she’s probably most famous for her connection with Frank Zappa and was a founding member of his groupie girl group, the GTOs. They played gigs around the LA area, but only released one album in 1969.
At least this groupie has some musical talent to back her up! This British bombshell had ‘60s mod looks and was Mick Jagger’s muse. Not only did she hook up with one Stone, she banged Keith Richards too. Marianne Faithfull has since evolved from her groupie ways and has had a musical career spanning over 50 years. She recently released her 20th album in 2014 called Give My Love To London, of which she has, in many different positions.
Lori Maddox and Sable Starr
Lori and Sable were BFF jailbait groupies of the Sunset Strip. I’m not talking about 17-years-old-waiting-for-a-few-months-before-they-turn-18 jailbait, these chicks were 13 years old! This was way back in the ‘70s, but I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and scream at them and say, “Where the fuck are your mothers?!” Nevertheless, Lori is known for being “kidnapped” at 14 by a then 29-year-old Jimmy Page and spent a year in a hotel room. She does claim that they were love, so who are we to judge?
Devon Wilson was a rarity as a black groupie in the 1960s. Stunning with a gorgeous afro, Devon was always found arm and arm with Jimi Hendrix. They kind of looked like siblings, but maybe I shouldn’t have said that. Jimi’s song, “Dolly Dagger” was written about her, but she was known to spread her groupie love to a lot of ‘60s musicians like Eric Clapton and Jim Morrison.
Not to be confused with Whitney Houston’s ex-groupie/husband, Bobbie Brown was another ‘80s Hair Metal groupie chick and appeared in the hilariously bad and overtly sexual video for Warrant’s “Cherry Pie.” Just like Tawny Kitaen, Bobbie Brown also married the lead singer of the band she did a music video for – Jani Lane. Their marriage only lasted two years before she decided the groupie gangbang wagon was more her thing, hooking up with Tommy Lee, Mark McGrath (Yes, the dude from “Extra” who your mother thinks is cute) and the lead singer of the band Orgy. My, how the mighty have fallen.
