    She became a groupie at age fifteen.
    She hated being called a groupie.
    She told Oprah Winfrey she had slept with about 2,000 musicians.
    In her later years, she made ends meet by selling off memorabilia given to her by her rock star lovers.
    Rock journalist Gavin Edwards noted that as the butter warmed up, a sexual encounter with her took on ‘the distinctly unerotic aroma of a movie theater’s lobby.’
    She idolized Mae West.
    She was mentioned in the Rolling Stones song ‘Rip This Joint.’ (‘Cross to Dallas, Texas, with the Butter Queen’)
    Robert Plant dedicated songs to her on stage.
    Elton John declared, ‘I got along with her famously.’
    Asked what she wanted from the groupie life, she replied, ‘Fun. Excitement. Good-looking men.’
