We dont talk about specific bands here. This blog is about the girls, we hear about the bands all the time and this blog is a break from that. We’re here to offer advice and ideas, not gossip and speculation. I think not discussing bands makes this blog more open, it’s open to everyone as we’re not just talking about a specific group of rock bands like other websites might.
I know people are curious about bands but we can’t answer - there are better ways of finding this out, such as seeking them out for yourselves! And anyway there are tonnes of bands and Sofia & I can’t possibly know about every last person.

Yeah, it’s always good to keep realistic. Be prepared! Life (and Groupiedom) isnt like it is in the movies, it’s not scripted and we dont get to skip out the boring parts and have a montage of the exciting bits! Groupiedom does have its down sides. I’ve fallen out with people at times and it’s left me wondering if I can ever go to their shows again, it’s left me thinking too much about this particular lyric, or it’s left me thinking things through until theyre threadbare. The trick to it all is to put yourself first. Do what is going to benefit you. I think that a lot of Groupies just give-give-give to bands, but I don’t think it would be selfish at all for some of these women/girls to do something for themselves for a change! If Groupiedom is getting a little rough for you: take a break. Go home and regroup, look after yourself. Make sure you have some sort of support ring, whether its friends or family or even talking to someone online.
All in all, I think the fact that things are hard at times makes the good times even better. Think about it - if life was easy, would you truly appreciate the nice things as much as you do now?
I’d like to add/reiterate things. A lot of our followers are young women, most haven’t reached adulthood yet actually. The whole backstage life is a very adult world. There’s drugs. Alcohol. Some of the more gross, waste of space bands might even get women to do degrading things, just because the guys are bored and want to see how far people will jump through hoops for them.
So I don’t think it is for everyone, and those considering starting out should definitely be prepared. We do try to address certain issues with the scene, and overall we try to keep this blog upbeat and positive but I have no qualms in telling people if they’re wrong about a certain thing or not. I just wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if I gave out advice that might get someone into danger. I also don’t like telling people to dive straight in, like they’d meet a famous group right off the bat, because that isn’t a realistic expectation.
But maybe we could get some of our followers to share some of their more ‘darker’ stories? We would share a few of our own, personal experiences too. Unfortunately we’ve learnt some things the hard way.

Unless there’s some kind of specific detail that you’d like to add, I’m just going to send you to some of our old posts, as this is quite an open question!
If there’s anything we can elaborate on, please get back in touch and i’ll happily help you out!
