Slang of the Week: groupie (noun)
In her 1987 autobiography, I’m with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie, she tells the story of her many successful conquests, including Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page and actor Don Johnson, among many, many, many others.
And while Penny Lane’s fictional groupie club was called the Band Aids, Des Barres was a member of an all-groupie rock band sponsored by experimental musician Frank Zappa. The reportedly untalented GTOs (which stood for Girls Together Outrageously, Occasionally, Only, Openly or Overtly, depending on the day) also had their own private slang, which included words like moche (disgusting), chickwebli (all of us) and bozo-ing (daydreaming).
