Pamela Miller went to Cleveland High School with Miss Sparky. A high-school colleague introduced her to Captain Beefheart, which resulted in her meeting people of numerous rock groups. Over the following years she had affairs with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Waylon Jennings, Chris Hillman, Noel Redding, Jim Morrison and was close friends with Robert Plant, Gram Parsons, Ray Davies, and the legendary cult music man FZ.

Pamela Des Barres: Zappa was my mentor; he brought out in me all sorts of creativity I didn’t know I had. That was his main gift, I think. He insisted on it. He wanted you to be more of yourself than you’d ever really been, and he wanted to find out who you really were. He wanted everyone to be themselves, to a huge degree, and then he wanted to encapsulate that and share it with the world. So the fact that he wanted that out of me, was such an incredible gift….here is your gift…
