12 Creepy Groupie Stories That Show The Music Industry’s Dark Side


The '60s and '70s were a different time. People were wilder back then, did whatever they wanted, and weren't burdened by social media or TMZ. Because of that, many musicians boldly had relationships with teenage groupies and even had affairs with underage mistresses. Today, it feels bizarre that the world allowed that to happen and considered it "normal," but many of those same groupies grew up and lived to tell their tales. Below, all the times musicians allegedly hooked up with underage fans.

The Aerosmith frontman has a sordid past many aren't even aware of. Back in the '70s, he dated teenager Julia Holcomb, who only recently told her side of the story in 2011. According to her, Steven asked her mother to sign away guardian rights over to him so that he could take her across state lines. "His guardianship of me complicated things further," she wrote. "I was subordinate to him as in a parent relationship and felt I had little control over my life." 

If that isn't creepy enough, Steven started pressuring her to have children and even threw her birth control away. Once she finally got pregnant, Steven abandoned her at an apartment all by herself with no money while he went on a world tour. When he came back, he suddenly changed his mind about wanting a family and forced Julia to have an abortion, according to her account. She stayed with him for another year before they broke up. Although she vowed to never speak of him again, Steven had a different outlook.

"He has talked of me as a sex object without any human dignity," she wrote. "I have made a point over these long years never to speak of him, yet he has repeatedly humiliated me in print with distortions of our time together. I do not understand why he has done this. It has been very painful."
