I loveee you nancy!

oilJul 11, 2010

I think she dated Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Joey Kramer, too! Many women would love to be called a groupie, cause we`ve been dating men that are beautiful, rich and celeb! I wouldn`t mind being called a groupie!!

JeanetteTindraMay 1, 2010

She was highly intelligent and very disturbed, I don´t think she wanted to be alive at all,,,,just waiting to die really. If it was by Sid´s one will ever know for sure. Please respect this person.....just calling her a groupie is so very disrespectful

livMar 21, 2010
