Californian based groupie group called the GTO’s pose for a portrait at the A&M Studio in Los Angeles, CA, November 1968. (Miss Pamela, Miss Mercy, Miss Cynderella, Miss Christine, Miss Sparky and Miss Sandra)
Producer Frank Zappa was so drawn to the groupies that he formed a band with seven of them called The GTOs, led by Miss Pamela, aka Pamela Des Barres. Their act was a mixture of theatrics, singing, and dancing with a supporting band as few of them could play instruments.
In 1969, Rolling Stone Magazine, then barely a year old, published a scandalous issue on the backstage proclivities of rock stars, and the women who sought them out. For the first-time, the original chronicle is published in book form and showcases Baron Wolman’s captivating portraiture.
