Miss Pamela, or Pamela des Barre as
she became known, was one of the seven GTO's.
Frank Zappa organized the "Girls Together Outrageously"
as a special project that included an album.
Miss Pamela was a "super groupie" who wrote the tell-all book,
"I'm With the Band."
Karen appeared on the cover of the Rolling Stone "groupie" issue, published in
February 1969. About a year after the issue came out, somebody painted her image
from the cover on the side of a house on Venice Boulevard in L. A.
Baron says Karen recently contacted him to
buy prints from their photo session.
A Stanford dropout, Trixie posed topless with her bass
for the "groupie" issue as a joke: musician Al Kooper
told people she was a topless bassist in a band.
What was true about Trixie was that she joined
an anarchist artists collective which rode from town to
town and painted the center lines of roads red.
"During the groupie interviews we learned how
they would chase after a rock star and get him
in bed in his hotel room or wherever he was staying
when he was on tour," says Baron. But besides the
chase, the most important element "was when they
would pick up the phone in the hotel room, call
their friends, and say, 'You'll never guess where I am.'".
