Zeppelin Groupie  







Audrey Hamilton:


Groupie of Robert Plant during Led Zeppelin's 1977 U.S. tour. Not a lot has been reported about Audrey and/or her relationship with Robert, but that she met the band while they were performing in Dallas and was invited to travel the rest of the trips with them when Robert liked her. The two would have a monthly fling, and Audrey also become friends with the rest of the musicians while hanging around on tour. But, like most groupies, once the plane was set for home (England), so was Audrey (Texas). The song Hot Dog is said to be inspired by Audrey and there's a story that she threw a drink at Jimmy Page in a bar once while clubbing. Some sources say that she was 'just 17' when Zeppelin came to town, but there's also an unconfirmed rumor that Audrey was in an 'open marriage' at the time of hanging out with the band. What we do know is that Robert seems to have a preference for the brunette type (and for writing songs about every girl he's involved with).

Yay for brunettes!! I have an advantage, hmmmm. ;) Actually I'm really glad to finally know who she is.

Robert's the only rocker hanging on to us. The rest all still go for blondes. Or foreign beauty (Asian, Latin, black, etc.) If it weren't for Robert's persuasion, I would have almost given up hope. ;) Brunettes don't seem to get a lot of attention for some reason if you take a look at all the girls they hook up with. Thanks for the notice Percy! (even though it's not me) :D

Thank goodness for that man! It's true, they don't get a lot of attention and it's not damn well fair!

AHH AMAZING INFORMATION. beatleswho HOW do you find this stuff?
seriously.

that's the ultimate groupie dream, i think. to be invited on tour. okay maybe secretly we all really do wish they would fall in love with us and eventually live with us. deeeeppp dowwwnnn inside.
but to be invited on tour.
sighhh

i think jimmy isn't paying much attention cause he's a complete strung out fucking MESS
the picture of robert and audrey just radiates this pure love and appreciation. now i want to know everything about her, she looks and sounds like the kind of groupie i adore.

god. why can't there be bands of zeppelin's magnitude that actually rock?? soon...soon.
i'm glad i look 17, and not 21 like i am, because when it DOES happen, i'll still have a chance, haha. i would have loved to hang out with robert, i like his grounded goofiness and all the love he has to give just falls off of him so easily.

I found the info on Audrey on a thread at the Led Zeppelin forum:

:D

Yeah, I think Jimmy's more than a little zonked there too, :P

*sigh* I wish Zeppelin were around today too. I look 15 still even though I'm 19, so hey, maybe I could snag along too (for Jimmy), haha. :)

awww that zeppelin forum (well, the old version) was the one to introduce me to morgana, who was the one to introduce me to the term "groupie."

okay well, fuck that because they're not so there's got to be a new band and then you can def have the jimmy of it. have you been on that forum long? do you recall something called "headmaster jimmy?" hahaha

Robert and Audrey
She is by far the most beautiful of all the "groupies" and she sure was Robert's type. Spending a month with him kind of takes her out of the one night stand groupie status. I wonder what she is doing now; wonder what it must have been like to have to say goodbye after being part of this whirlwind life that few ever experienced; how do you go back to your old life after that. I wonder if there were promises made to see each other again? Unfortunately, that was also the tour they were on when Robert's son died [in July]; so their time together was also marred by horrific tragedy in Robert's life.
I know he denied that the song "Hot Dog" was about her but of course he is going to say that. He can't exactly admit it when he is married to someone else.
