Many women don’t like the “groupie” tag, but Connie Hamzy was one that embraced it. Hamzy says that she hooked up with just about every famous musician that stopped in Little Rock, Arkansas at the time. There’s even an allusion to this claim, as the band Grand Funk Railroad had a line in “We’re an American Band” that talked about “Sweet Sweet Connie,” her nickname. Hamzy also said that she hooked up with President Bill Clinton when he was the Governor of Arkansas at the time.
Another woman that has embraced the “groupie” label, Chris O’Dell actually refers to herself as a “super-groupie.” O’Dell left Arizona for England to start an office job with Apple (the Beatles’ record label). Over the years, O’Dell had been linked to just about every famous British rocker, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan and Ringo Starr. She said of the time that “There was real confusion about relationships and commitment,” as many musicians didn’t know what they wanted.
