"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

In Almost Famous (2000), the character of Penny Lane is based on different groupies (or “band aids”) that Cameron Crowe met in the 1970s. The main inspiration is Pennie Trumbull, a Portland native who toured with rock bands in the seventies, along with her girlfriends, The Flying Garter Girls. The character has also been based, to a lesser extent, on rock girlfriend and muse Bebe Buell, and seventies groupie Geraldine Edwards.
