    Story
    (71)

    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.

    Story
    Where does I'm with the Band rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of all the Autobiography's this is the top. The only one that might be better is Rob Lowe's.


    What other book might you compare I'm with the Band to and why?

    The book by John Taylor or Heart - both rock and roll memoirs. Nancy & Ann Wilsons was good, but Pamela Des Barres is way more engaging. John Taylor's was good, but I felt like he was telling me a story that I had already heard through the stuff I read thoughout the years. John Taylor's and Heart's audio books sounded like they read from their books. It got boring at times... Pamela let's me into a world I briefly encountered, and lets me live vicariously through her - knowing about the pains of having my heart broken, falling madly in love, having a crush, adoring the people who are so creative is makes your head explode and having the moment (in her case lots of moments) to be in the presence of them.


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

    The way she narrates it. It's like you're sitting in her living room with her while she is sharing you her stories - like your big sister or Aunt does. She isn't reading, she is telling you stories. It could be word for word for her book, but she doesnt make you feel like she's reading from her book. Plus she breaks away and tells some small elaboration of a piece of a story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah! but I personally like listening to them in chunks... easier to digest.
