  1. Pamela Des Barres new book

    In 1987, famous groupie and rock ‘n’ roll lifer Pamela Des Barres released I’m With the Band, a juicy tell-all about her affairs and adventures with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Don Johnson, Jim Morrison, Waylon Jennings, and many others. The irresistible page-turner went on to land at No. 11 on Billboard’s ranking of the top 100 music books of all time and earn praise from even Nobel Prize-winning wordsmith Bob Dylan, but at the time, Des Barres’s unrepentant tales of sexual liberation on the Sunset Strip raised many judgmental haters’ eyebrows and hackles. In fact, years before “slut-shaming” was the national hot topic it is now, a famous shock-rock DJ actually introduced Des Barres as “the national slut.” But as she celebrates the 30th anniversary of I’m With the Band, Des Barres is as unapologetic and free-spirited as ever, and she’s opened the door of self-expression to a new generation of memoirists, some of whom take her writing classes and even inspired her latest, fifth book, Let It Bleed: How to Write a Rockin’ Memoir. In this personal essay, Des Barres reflects on how being known, for better or worse, as “queen of the groupies” helped her learn how to embrace her own life story and teach others to do the same. https://www.yahoo.com/music/im-band-author-pamela-des-barres-slut-shaming-30-years-later-ive-done-hard-time-groupie-suffragette-233146100.html
  2. Thank you, fellow Zep-Heads!

    Woot! My book "So L.A. - A Hollywood Memoir" is trending in the heavy metal section of Amazon (both Kindle and Paperback). I'm in the top 10 across 3 areas: #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Arts & Photography > Music > Musical Genres > Heavy Metal #6 in Books > Arts & Photography > Music > Biographies > Heavy Metal #6 in Books > Arts & Photography > Music > Musical Genres > Heavy Metal I think it's in part thanks to my fellow Led Zeppelin fans. I posted about my book a week or so ago in another forum here, and I've gotten so much great feedback from folks who read it and enjoyed my Led Zeppelin stories in particular (though I have stories about my personal brushes with other bands too). Really happy, just wanted to share my news and say thanks. Staci Layne Wilson
  3. Hello. It's been a while since I've posted here (more than a year, maybe?). I have been very busy writing my memoir "So L.A." which came out yesterday in Amazon's Kindle store (and already in the Top 50 ) and will be available in paperback next week. Anyway, the reason I'm posting here is because I have some personal Led Zep related stories in my book, as well as tons of other classic rock tales from my time on the Sunset Strip in the 1980s, and so I'm wondering if you guys have any favorite classic rock podcasts or blogs that cover books or do interviews with authors? I usually write horror (fiction) so this is kind of a new world to me as far as getting the word out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Staci

  5. Hey, fellow Zep heads! Some of you might remember me from my rather spotty postings here, over several years. Or not. Anyway, since I love Led Zep, and I love Led Zep fans, I thought I'd post my little Call for Submissions here. Would you like to write a short chapter for my upcoming book? The Movie That Changed My Life is a collection of stories written by people from all walks of life (doctors, store clerks, astrologers, chefs, woodworkers, truck drivers, etc.) about a film that touched their lives in some significant way. These anecdotes need not *all* be earth-shattering or profound. Some will be laugh-out-loud funny or maybe centered around crazy experiences while a certain movie was playing; they can be about a movie you didn’t know changed your life until later (first-date movie with spouse-to-be, perhaps?); the first film you ever saw; a movie that made you decide to go into a certain profession, or made you realize it was time to quit your job, etc. These stories can be centered around any kind of feature film – documentary to horror, silent to animated, noir to giallo, and everything in between. It will be a fun, fast read. Kindle to start, and maybe print-on-demand in the future. I cannot pay you for your contribution, but I am giving 25% of net sales to Reel Grrls. At Reel Grrls, girls ages 9 - 21 learn production skills through hands-on workshops and classes taught by female media professionals and educators. Reel Grrls is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. = = = Here’s what I need: Your name, your profession. (Student or Retired is OK, too.) Your email address (for my use only, not to be published). The story. From 500 – 750 words. Somewhere in your story, you must include the name of the movie, what it’s about, and talk about a scene from it that stuck with you. The story must have heart – whether it’s funny or poignant, it has to be entertaining! A short, snappy bio about you; no more than 3 or 4 sentences. Be as funny or as creative as you can! Boring bios… bad. Please add your twitter, instagram, blog, or website. = = = The deadline is July 1, 2015. By sending your story, you agree that you understand: it’s a contribution, and that it may be edited for content and grammar, punctuation, etc. Send it to me at: BlueStreakProductions@gmail.com My name is Staci Layne Wilson, and you can check Amazon Kindle for my other books (just so you know you’re not sending your stories into a black vortex of “?”)
  6. BEST book on LZ?

    Just finished reading Barney Hoskins' oral history of LZ and was left disappointed. Not enough on the CREATION of the music and perhaps too many unsubstantiated accounts of bad behavior, especially from John Bonham. It got me thinking: what would the LZ community here consider the BEST overall book on LZ? Thanks for sharing!
