Rock bottom : dark moments in music Babylon by Pamela Des Barres( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dark moments of rock history fascinate and tantalize like the pathos of Greek tragedy. The bottom sinks lower, the air seems colder, the bad endings--whent they are bad--seem beyond bad. The unlucky practitioners of our most thriving form of communal experience seem to hit rock bottom in ways only the most glamorous among us can--publicly. The stories remain obscure, half-seen in the shadowlands. In her familiar style, Pamela Des Barres shines light on the people whose art remains the background music to our popular culture. Des Barres asks, "What comes first, the addiction or the rock and roll'" The first apparent rock-and-roll death occured on Christmas Eve in 1959, when Johnny Ace blew his head off in a game of Russian Roulette between shows. Buddy Holly's four-seater plane crashes. Marvin Gaye's father shoots his son. Kurt Cobain puts a gun to his head. The headlines tell it all: ROCK SINGER FACES MANSLAUGHTER CHARGE, JAMES BROWN ADDICTED TO PCP, BASSIST FOR BAND HOLE FOUND DEAD. The messed-up lives, the burned-out golden boys and girls, the violence, the route toward rock bottom--Des Barres has a line on the souls of the public figures who lived desperate private lives to entertain us all

Let it bleed : how to write a rockin' memoir by Pamela Des Barres( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author of the international bestseller I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie, Pamela Des Barres shares with women the art of memoir writing. For the last fourteen years, Pamela Des Barres has been teaching an eight-week women's "femoir" writing workshop. She found that the music-loving ladies who showed up at her door had pent-up stories to tell. Many of them had read her two memoirs, which were wildly personal and deeply confessional, and felt comfortable opening up and experiencing that same freedom of expression. In this book, Des Barres guides women through the process of writing their memoirs. She has developed exercises to help her "dolls" recall, remember, relive, and reveal their memories, transgressions, temptations, their sleepless nights and brilliant afternoons, loves and losses, fears and regrets, secrets, sins, and sorrows. The assignments in Femoir have proven incredibly cathartic for her students. Just as intimate as one of her in-person workshops, this book includes some of Des Barres's own stories, as well as those of the women she's taught. Every person has an incredible story to tell--they just need to figure out how to tell it. By understanding themselves better through these writing exercises, women learn to be more fearless, free-spirited, and willing to try something new"--

Take another little piece of my heart : a groupie grows up by Pamela Des Barres( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pamela Des Barres spent the sexual revolution on the ramparts as the celebrated "queen of the groupies" and chronicled her adventures with the high priests of rock in her best seller I'm With the Band. Affectionate, subversive, and funny, it was hailed by The New York Times as representing "something honorable and loving ... about the sexual honesty of modern women." It became an underground classic, an emblematic memoir of the 1960s generation. Take Another Little Piece of My Heart picks up where that story left off, with Pamela's embarkation on the Hollywood brand of postmodern marriage and motherhood. The Des Barreses face the same problems as any other American family but writ large: To make ends meet they share quarters with another struggling couple - Don Johnson and Patti D'Arbanville - and take in a boarder, ex-Sex Pistol Steve Jones. When her acting career founders despite a stint with Sly Stallone, Pamela sells Mary Kay cosmetics, with the help of fledgling star Jeff Goldblum. When her marriage ends, she finds consolation dancing with Bob Dylan, romancing Dennis Hopper, and befriending Sandra Bernhard, as well as through spiritual healing. For all its famous names and insider lore, this is a survivor's story - about the anguish of coping with loved ones' addictions, about suffering divorce and loss, about the joys and terrors of raising a gifted son. And Pamela comes through it all with her grace, her charm, and her generous sense of humor intact. Take Another Little Piece of My Heart is a rollicking, piquant, sometimes heartbreaking document of the middle-passage years of the baby-boom generation, and a hilarious, inspiring tussle with life's adversities
