“Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair…” That girl was Michele Overman and she’s our Mystical Muse of the week. She was Robert Plant‘s LA girl, dated a certain Steven before he was world famous, and continues to rock and rule to this day!
In the first “season finale” of the podcast, Chanty invites her long-time rock and roll crush, Will Dre over for a little chat! They discuss Chanty’s week hosting the one and only world famous Groupie, Miss Pamela Des Barres in her home for a writing workshop and dish about the time she met Tom Petty! Chanty forgets to disclose what Pamela said about being on top of Jimmy Page’s amp was like (it was awesome, and no she didn’t wear earplugs), and Chanty mispronounces Greenwich village… twice.
In this episode you’ll also hear how Pamela and Michele met at a Flying Burrito Brothers concert in 1969 and fell in love with each other while falling in love with Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, respectively.
Some things you WON’T hear is how, off-mic over coffee, Chanty tells Will that it was actually one of the GTO’s that inspired Alice Cooper’s makeup, and Will tells Chanty that before he was in Billie Dre and the Poor Boys, one of his bands opened up for KISS.
