The Most Notorious Rock n’ Roll Groupies Ever

Cathy Smith

Notorious groupie Cathy Smith is not well liked, and was pretty much blacklisted because of what happened in 1982. That was when she injected John Belushi with heroin and cocaine that would end up being a fatal dosage, taking the comedian and actors life. Before that, Smith was well known for being a groupie and had many famous hookups. This included Richard Manuel and Gordon Lightfoot before the 1982 tragedy.

Nancy Spungen

Sid Vicious was one of the most memorable musicians during the 1970s punk rock scene, and his relationship with Nancy Spungen was very publicized and complicated to say the least. Before meeting him, Spungen had been linked with members of Aerosmith, Bad Company and the Ramones. Things would take a dark turn as Spungen was found dead at just 20 years old, and Vicious was charged with the murder. While he was on bail, Vicious had overdosed on heroin and died, so we’ll likely never know what happened that night in 1978.
