The GTO's

I love reading Pamela Des Barre's books about being a rock groupie in the 60's and 70's.  Her stories are so much fun and you always learn something new about the rock gods of the time.  She and some other groupies started their own girl-group in the late 60's called the GTO's (Girls Together Outrageously ), under the watchful tutelage of Frank Zappa.  A mix of theatrics, singing, and dance were staples of their act. Their only album, Permanent Damage (Straight Records), was produced in 1969 

Their collective talent didn't result to much, but they sure were fun to look at.  I love their crazy get-ups - lace and chiffon, Victorian details, outrageous make-up.  Fashion is so boring these days.
