Rock stars are well documented for their debaucheries and depravity, so it’s not hard to understand why they have such notorious reputations as sexual deviants and lotharios. Here are a couple of the more novel stories we dug up for your reading pleasure:
David Lee Roth’s Groupie Scavenger Hunt
The sex antics of David Lee Roth are well documented (check out his anecdotal biography Crazy From the Heat for more in-depth depictions of debauchery, including having sex with five girls at a time during a video shoot, and insuring his penis). But one of his more entrepreneurial exploits regarding sex involves Mr Roth directing hordes of roadies, mid-show to find girls and hand them backstage tickets to have an, ahem, ‘intimate meet and greet’ backstage with the man himself. Each roadie would sign the tickets with initials and if the lucky pass turned up the next morning among the discarded lingerie, he would get a $100 breakfast bonus. But it gets better. In an act of true rockstarian magnanimity, Roth allowed the backstage crew free reign to pick up the remaining girls once the pack down was complete. Apparently, this cut bump out time in half. You can fault Roth for objectification sure, but I’ll bet his management was stoked.
Nikki Sixx and the Spaghetti Incident
Possibly the definitive groupie band – c’mon, they wrote a song called “Girls, Girls, Girls” – Mötley Crüe have had frankly more than any band’s fair share of groupie sex stories. By far the most hilarious, and certainly the grossest started in the summer of ’89 with a friendly competition between singer Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee (you know him, he invented sex tape scandals with Pamela Anderson) in which they saw who could go the longest without showering and still have sex with groupies without them throwing up or leaving on account of the smell. The conclusion to this sexscapade came when a certain young lady was performing fellatio on our hero and it seems that all those days and nights sans a bit of soap and a scrubbing brush were just a bit too much for her. Apparently, she had been eating spaghetti and it came up right on Sixx’s member. The disgraced rocker was forced to concede defeat to his drummer… and hopefully had a shower.
David Bowie Banged Slash’s Mum… Repeatedly
In 1976, David Bowie was filming The Man Who Fell To Earth and on set he met the beautiful Ola Hudson, a hairstylist. Over the next three years they would maintain a relationship. Slash himself has voiced his dislike for the man but it’s hard to blame him: imagine having Bowie tell you bedtime stories with that crazy blue eye staring at you. You’d have nightmares! There’s that, and the fact that he once caught them in the act. We’re not saying Bowie was instrumental in sparking the rebellious fire that created the Shred God that is Slash, but wethinks walking in on the Thin White Duke and your mother making the beast with two backs would give anyone an Appetite for Destruction.
