"The groupie is just a girl who loves music and loves to be around the people who make it. She is the fan that takes it to the next level to experience the whole shebang." – Pamela Des Barres

She was 17 years old when she first met the Beatles. They were appearing on the BBC radio broadcast at the Royal Albert Hall. Jane went along to pose for Radio Times photographer. Jane then approached The Beatles while they were having a snack. They were aware of her and they were all charmed by her. Initially, it was George who seemed to engage most of her attention. During the course of the next few hours Paul began to show his interest in Jane and the others left him to talk to her alone. Later he escorted her home and arranged to meet her again.

I knew I was selfish, it caused a few rows. Jane went off and said ‘OK, then, leave. I’ll find someone else.’ It was shattering to be without her. That was when I wrote “I’m Looking Through You." - Paul

I shan’t give up my career unless it interferes with our being together. I love Paul. I love him deeply and he feels the same. I don’t think either of us has looked at anyone else since we first met." - Jane

I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her..

- Here, There and Everywhere, The Beatles

The Sanchez Twins were groupies, right? Who have they been with? I'm curious. :) I've never heard of them until now

unfortunately, we don’t know much about them. they were featured in the rolling stone groupie issue, so yes, it means they were groupie girls. but we don’t know who they went for. we think baron wolman photographed them when they were 18 years old.
