You had to be pretty special to earn the nickname ‘Queen of the Groupies’ back then, but that’s exactly what Sable Starr was. Back in the 1970s, she was the groupie everyone knew, and everyone wanted to be, having had personal relationships with the likes of David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Rod Stewart. She was one of the first “baby groupies” to go to the trendy nightclubs on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip like Whisky A-Go-Go, Rainbow Bar, and Grill. And Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco.
She revealed absolutely all the details in a fascinating 1973 interview with Star Magazine. She even discussed how she had to deal with ‘rival groupies’ who were trying to challenge her for the affections of leading rockers at the time. She sadly passed away at the relatively young age of 51 in 2009, having developed brain cancer.
