"Sweet Connie" Hamzy is one of the top rock groupies of all-time. She is already one of the most famous groupies, having been immortalized in a line in Grand Funk's "We're An American Band" ("Sweet, sweet Connie, doin' her act/ She had the whole show and that's a natural fact.") her list of conquests is a who's who of rock royalty. During an interview on the Howard Stern Show, Hamzy let loose with a lengthy list of groupie confessions, which we've compiled here.
Based in Arkansas, Hamzy allegedly linked up with a large percentage of bands who came to her town during a stretch of decades from the late 60s through the 90s as evidenced by the least-talented musicians on this list: Vanilla Ice and Bill Clinton. (Okay, Clinton does have a little skill on the sax.)
Groupies have been immortalized in movies like Almost Famous, but Hamzy remains a true legend judging by the rockers on this list. She admitted on the show that her specialty was of the oral nature and that central to her success was the fact that she did an awful lot of favors for the various roadies of the touring rock stars.
These stars - some of whom are quite surprising to see here - are ranked in the order we felt like ranking them here at Celebrity Hookups central. Wonder if Hamzy ever made a celeb "tape" with any of these famous men? Her heyday was a bit ahead of the time where such tapes were a big thing, but still, a Huey Lewis tape would be... interesting.
Hamzy is one of the most famous groupies of all time. So who were her greatest conquests? Take a look and see.
