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! 😉
