Pullin’ ‘Tubes Theater Presents: Groupies

One of the numerous memorable scenes from Cameron Crowe’s 2000 movie Almost Famous featured Kate Hudson’s character Penny Lane explaining the qualitative differences between Band Aids, and groupies, declaring, “We are not Groupies. Groupies sleep with rockstars because they want to be near someone famous. We are here because of the music, we inspire the music. We are Band Aids.” Well if you’ve wondered just what groupies were like during their infamous heyday in the late 1960s/early 1970s then your in luck, as the aptly titled, long out of print 1970 documentary Groupies has recently been uploaded to Daily Motion for your viewing pleasure.

The 92-mintue film features interviews with arguably two of the most famous groupies of all time – Pamela Des Barres, who wrote the tell all book I’m with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie, and Cynthia Plaster Caster, whose exploits were the subject of the 2001 doc Plaster Caster, as well as a number of their well known cohorts. The flick also includes vintage performances from Joe Cocker and the Grease Band, Ten Years After, Spooky Tooth, Terry Reid, Keith Webb and Peter Shelly.

You can watch the entire NSFW documentary in this handy Daily Motion playlist. So grab some popcorn and a drink, crank up your AC and enjoy this first installment of Pullin’ ‘Tubes Theater Presents…
