Groupie Girl: Hope Zooey isn’t Pooey

pamela des barres

Very interested to hear that they’re making a TV series based on Miss Pamela Des Barres’s autobiography, I’m With The Band. I completely lapped that book up last Christmas, thanks to Senti for the loan, and it’s led to some interesting conversations with other interesting people about the subject matter. My lovely Miss Senti and Charley are both groupies, and I often find it hard to explain to other people; not least because I’m not one, and so I’m explaining a life I don’t lead. But Pamela’s book was inspirational in plenty of other ways, and she was certainly a style icon.

They’ve cast the very brunette Zooey Deschanel as Pamela and, contrary to my very silly subject line, I’m sure she won’t be pooey. I’m just fascinated to see how it works as a series, rather than a movie.

And if the costume designer needs anything, just give me a call! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I'm still not sure how I feel about Zooey in the role- i just don't see her as Pam. Hopefully it will be good though, as I am such a fan of that era and that whole scene.

  2. We've waited far too long for a version of I'm With The Band to be filmed, and it'll be so great as a TV series as it means there can be more of it! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hopefully it will be a roaring success and they can lead straight on with Take Another Little Piece Of My Heart and then into her writing her other books and interviewing people like the lovely Patti J.Can't wait to see who gets to play Miss Mercy! ๐Ÿ˜€ I'd love that role. …I hope Mr Moon is played by someone yummy and who can drum. I vote Jason Schwartzman!Sooo excited!!!! In all seriousness, we really should suggest you as a possible source for clothes if they get stuck and aren't going to represent the fashion craziness of the GTOs properly. We could always suggest you to Miss P. What d'you think?
