really liked it
bookshelves: music-and-other-700-s
Read in June, 2012

hilarious and well written account of rock n roll, la and sunset strip and socal in general in lates 1960's and 1970's. in fact pamela expands her horizons by 1970 and travels to london and nyc quite a bit (at times with a plane ticket sent by led zepplin, as times saving her hard earned money and flying herself) so you get the scoop via miss pamela on the zappa log cabin, the GTO's, flying burrito brothers, jimi hendrix experience, san francisco at the height (and depths) of flower power, holy rollers, iron butterfly and more and more, like the plaster casters, keith moon and his motivations, micheal des barres, making movies and tv in '60's and '70's and on and on. lots of anecdotes, diary entries, and pictures.
turns out miss pamela has written lots of books over the years and is quite an accomplished author.
