Iranian Rock Groupie Discusses 'The Last Living Slut' Memoir In Two New Interviews

Robert Williams of Metal-Rules.com recently conducted an interview with Roxana Shirazi, an unrepentant groupie who has just published a memoir, "The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage", about her sexcapades with members of the most illustrious (and not-so-illustrious) rock acts of the past three decades. The chat can now be streamed below. Also available is a video report from Germany's Focus magazine featuring interview excerpts with Shirazi.

Shirazi told New York's Daily News that several editors and agents passed on her manuscript for fear of a fatwa — the Islamic death sentence that once put "Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie in fear of his life.

But her two champions, authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, finally persuaded HarperCollins to publish it under the new Igniter imprint.

The book's official description: "'The Last Living Slut' is the salaciously literary and sexually liberated account of one young woman's transition from traditionally-raised Iranian to rock and roll groupie . . . Paired with a powerful introduction by New York Times bestselling authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, Roxana Shirazi's 'The Last Living Slut' is a passionate tale of jilted love, brutal revenge, and backstage encounters that make Pamela Des Barres's 'I'm With The Band' read like the diary of a nun."
