Burn Your Idols: Did Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie Get Away with Statutory Rape?

Mick Jagger and Iggy Pop immortalized their sexual encounters with minors in songs like “Look Away” and “Stray Cat Blues,” so how did they avoid the fury #MeToo movement? David Bowie and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page also had their way with 14 and 15-year-old groupies, and to this day, an impenetrable cloud of Boomer adulation seems to protect them for responding to the allegations of statutory rape. We look to Pamela Des Barres’ memoir, I’m with the Band, for a vivid picture of the groupie lifestyle, and Star Magazine provides details of her rivalry with teen queens Lori Mattix and Sable Starr. Katie reminisces about her own brief stint as a groupie, and confirms that as “girl with a type” — it’s never just about the music.
