There are profoundly sad, shocking revelations here, and the reader understands why John Lennon glanced at the groupie and her adolescent female gang in , "his face full of contempt and sorrow. This is how I always imagined a groupie should be like--star struck, believing that by adoring and being available to these rock idols would somehow make these idols fall hopelessly in love.

She finally met and married Michael Des Barres who was in a rock band at the time. Sport videos. Money transfers.
