Song of the Day – “Groupie Girl” – Opal Butterfly

How did I find this? I’m not really sure. But it’s totally groovy in a happening kind of way.
It’s the theme for a 1970 British flick that I’m sure was a huge influence for Kate Hudson and her “Penny Lane” character in Almost Famous.
Opal Butterfly included Simon King and (temporarily) Ian Kilmeister. Both went on to be part of Hawkwind, and Kilmeister (also known as Lemmy) went on after that to Motorhead. Lemmy passed away on December 28th.
