“On the road for 40 days
Last night in Little Rock put me in a haze
Sweet, sweet Connie, doin’ her act
She had the whole show and that’s a natural fact”
Those are the opening lines to Grand Funk Railroad’s We’re an American Band, much to Connie Hamzy’s delight… and much to her parents’ horror! Sweet Connie very well might be one of rock’s most promiscuous muses… and she’s damn proud of it! From Led Zeppelin to the Who, a threesome with two of the Eagles and even Frank Zappa, Connie’s conquests are remarkable… and they don’t end there!
It’s just me and you this week listener as I bring you a mini-sode. I cozy up in Ontario’s version of Little Rock Arkansas, to bring you the sweet and sometimes shocking story of our girl, Connie. Her reputation preceded her so that she had requests from concert promoters who would give her backstage passes to all the shows her little groupie heart desired.
We’ll make this description short and sweet… just like this episode. Tune in to catch your last Groupie fix of 2016! See you in the New Year!
