Young Lust

Legendary party girl and one-time girlfriend to some of rock n' roll's hardest-living bad boys, California-bred Sable Starr lost her virginity to Iggy Pop at age 13 (which just sounds sick to me, nowadays), and was the most salient and recognizable face of the new group of baby groupies that prowled the Sunset Strip in the early 70's.  She was best friends with Lori Mattix, and together they became regulars at Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco, where they enchanted Led Zeppelin and other rockers, and called out rude remarks to former GTO Miss Pamela, who had dated Jimmy Page and was then the ripe old age of 25.  When the New York Dolls came to LA, Sable and friends waited by their hotel to give them a warm welcome, and to pick out the Doll they desired. For Sable, it was guitarist Johnny Thunders, and it began their tumultuous two year, coast-crossing romance. 

Ultimately, Sable was a tragic figure, disappearing from "the scene" when she was still a teenager.  She died two years ago of a brain tumor.

Here are the scans I've collected of Miss Starr and Lori (and a couple of Miss Pamela).  Please credit if you re-post, and let me know if you want me to email you bigger versions of the files (I resized them, as usual, for this blog).
