We’re so excited, and so proud of Miss P for creating buzz for “I’m With The Band” all over again. Well done! Check out this coverage in Page Six! (though let’s be honest… she didn’t really lose her chance to sleep with Mick!)
Mick Jagger spent a sad night alone after the tragic Altamont Festival in 1969 because Pamela Des Barres mistakenly thought he was planning a threesome with her and Michelle Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas.
Des Barres wrote about that mournful night at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel in her best-selling memoir “I’m With the Band.”
Now the legendary groupie, in her debut column for PleaseKillMe.com, out Tuesday, reveals how badly she was confused after four people died on what has been called “rock’s darkest day” and “the end of innocence.”
Des Barres said she wasn’t interested in a three-way. “As pretty and charming as Michelle Phillips was, I’m an old-fashioned, one-on-one bona fide romantic.”
Two decades later, when the two bumped into each other at a club, Phillips told her: “I was with Gram Parsons that night, not Mick Jagger.” (Parsons, of the Flying Burrito Brothers, fatally OD’d in 1973.)
“Before I could stutter an apology, she stood, slid her chair back and disappeared into the trendy crowd, leaving me soaking in the horror of my youthful mistake.”
