Groupie Bang Bang


Freak Out 1966… with Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde the first two double albums.
The Mothers were originally a band called The Soul Giants, which as soon as
they asked Frank Zappa, were taken over by Frank. They quitted the singer
Alice Stewart. So that left Ray Collins, Roy Estrada, Jimmy Carl Black,
Elliot Ingber and Frank Zappa. The record company MGM didn’t like the name
and suggested The Mothers Auxiliary. Frank came up with the name
The Mothers of Invention.

The song ‘Groupie Bang Bang’ didn’t land on the album.
Was it because of the lyrics?

Byrds and Stones dig the way she dance
And ev’ry damn one gets in her pants
Paul McCartney and Ringo too
Say she balls better than Epstein do

Took her home with me last night
Tore off the clothes and turned down the light
Had her boogie on my lap
Four days later I had the clap

Anyway … eventually it ended up on The MOFO Project/Object (Deluxe Edition)

Heather met Davy Jones of the Monkees when her brother was in the musical Oliver!
on Broadway and Davy was the Artful Dodger.
“We had a little romance and we were crazy about each other, although it was
quite comical as he was 5 ft 1 and I’m 6 ft. I even ran his fan club, opening
all these letters from adoring girls.”

No pictures of her and Davy Jones, Gordon Waller, Jimi Hendrix,
Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.

Heather Taylor has her own website.

As far as if she was the inspiration for Foxy Lady there’s only
Hendrix biographer Harry Shapiro as I mentioned in the post
about the other candidate Lithofayne Pridgon.
