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.
