If you enjoy reading about sex, drugs and rock & roll, then this book will be to your liking. It's what I consider a "guilty pleasure" read - complete brain candy - filling, but with no lasting nourishing value. I occasionally like gossipy books about celebrities, as well as rock stars and this has both of each. I read it some years ago, but from what I remember there is a lot about Mick Jagger, Keith Moon and even more of Jimmy Page of the late 60's and early 70's. Free sex and love with an abundance of backstage high jinks. Des Barres is a saucy piece of baggage who not only exposes, but "brags" of her sexual conquests. I understand she is one of the most famous rock groupies of all time, but that might be on account of her revealing and bestselling book. I had never heard of her before I read her racy memoirs.
