    Story
    (61)

    As soon as she graduated from high school, Pamela Des Barres headed for the Sunset Strip, where she knocked on rock stars' backstage doors and immersed herself in the drugs, danger, and ecstasy of the freewheeling 1960s. Over the next 10 years she had affairs with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Waylon Jennings, Chris Hillman, Noel Redding, and Jim Morrison, among others. She traveled with Led Zeppelin; lived in sin with Don Johnson; turned down a date with Elvis Presley; and was close friends with Robert Plant, Gram Parsons, Ray Davies, and Frank Zappa.

    Armstrong says: "Dont waste your money...........please"
    "Best narrated-by-author-memoir ever!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of I'm with the Band to be better than the print version?

    That would disparage either the book or the reader.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author is the only real characterization -- it's a memoir after all.


    What does Pamela Des Barres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pamela Des Barres has a lovely voice, and her reading is utterly honest, open, sincere and emotional. Also, worth mentioning, she adds current-day asides to the narration that are always fun, funny and true. (As when she describes waiting by the phone before "turning to the audience" and telling us how lucky we are when her generation didn't have cellphones or the internet or even answering machines.)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of laughs and sympathy.


    Any additional comments?

    Will download anything she reads.
