Bowie said, “Well, darling, bring her in.” That night I lost my virginity and had my first threesome. They were already at the point where they had separate rooms.

At that point, though, especially after the Bowie incident, I was truly afraid that Sable would beat me up, kill me, crucify me, 86 me out of Hollywood. When he came back for a party to celebrate the launching of the band’s record label, Swan Song, I made the biggest mistake. He was like a god to me and instantly destroyed this whole image I had of him. My relationship with Jimmy ended and my heart was shattered. He will always be one of the great loves of my life.

She hung out at the Playboy Mansion and modeled in the pages of These days, she has found success as a partner and buyer for the Glam Boutique on Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. Over cheeseburgers at Father’s Office in LA, she told me that when the 71-year-old Jimmy Page, now dating a 25-year-old, recently came to town, they met up. Everybody was hanging out at the pool, throwing each other in, and Jimmy walked up to me. I knew I would be staying with Jimmy and told my friend Bebe Buell [then a groupie who later dated Steven Tyler and is the mother of Liv Tyler] that she could have the room next door. I had a key to Jimmy’s suite, walked in, and saw them in bed together. I remember going to a party they had at Bel-Air Hotel that night.

My junior high school friend Queenie became friends with Sable and introduced me. I had not yet turned 15 and he wanted to take me to his hotel room. He had hair the color of carrots, no eyebrows, and the whitest skin imaginable. At the time, Sable and her sister Coral were both dating Iggy Pop, spending time at the home of Tony De Fries [then-manager of David Bowie and Iggy] up in Laurel Canyon. We were drinking cocktails and looking at menus when some crazy guy dove over the table and said to David, “You flaming fucking faggot. ” Next thing you know, Stuey’s got the guy pinned down and we’re being escorted out a side door and back into the limo. He focused his famously two-colored eyes on me and said, “Lori, darling, can you come with me? He walked me through his bedroom and into the bathroom, where he dropped his kimono. I saw David many times after that, for the next 10 years, and it was always great. Besides, I had been the last virgin in my high school. Not long after my night with Bowie, I got a call from some guy saying he was Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin was the biggest rock band in the world. But then, a couple of weeks later, Sable and I were at Iggy’s place where we found out that Led Zeppelin was staying at the Hyatt House. On the way over, Sable said to me, “You keep your hands off Jimmy. We tried to have sex all night, but, at a certain point, he couldn’t get hard anymore.
