Sable Starr was a famous American groupie who was known as the “queen of the groupie scene.” She ruled the world of rock music in California during the 1970s. A “groupie,” back then, was a term used to signify an ardent follower of a musician or a musical group. Groupies attached themselves to renowned musicians and built intimate relations with them. Sable Starr was linked to several famed musicians, such as Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie. Starr was born into a rich family and enjoyed all the privileges of wealth. Since her childhood days, she was rebellious and loved breaking rules. She got acquainted with the world of rock at an early age, when a friend invited her to the nightclub ‘Whiskey a Go Go.’ Soon, she established herself as a star groupie. Starr grabbed attention with her outrageous way of dressing wherever she went. In an interview to the celebrity magazine ‘Star,’ she claimed that she was the best among the local groupies in Los Angeles. Sable Starr and her friends were often referred to as “baby groupies,” as they were quite young. At the age of 16, Starr left home to live with musician Johnny Thunders. He was the leading guitarist of the rock band ‘New York Dolls.’ However, the relationship turned sour, as Thunders was addicted to drugs. He was extremely possessive about Starr and abused her in many ways. Soon, Starr put an end to the relationship and moved back to Los Angeles. She continued to be an active groupie for a few more years but quit the scene later. She then moved to Nevada and became a card dealer at a casino. She later suffered from brain cancer and died at the age of 51.
