Vivid Releases 1st Phil Varone 'Groupies' Title

LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment will be releasing “Phil Varone Groupies: The Music From Behind” online on on Aug. 26 and in stores on Sept. 9.

The movie is the first of four installments in Varone’s new “Groupies” series, with each being shot in a different city.

Rock star (former Skid Row and current Saigon Kick drummer) and now porn director/performer Varone takes viewers backstage at concerts and inside hotel rooms to see groupie sex unfold first-hand. As a veteran rock drummer, Varone estimates that he’s bedded over 3,000 women, and says he’s not stopping anytime soon.

Being a rock star is one of men’s most popular fantasies, according to Varone. “Let’s face it, the three reasons why guys dream of being rock stars is for fame, fortune and women," Varone said. "The questions I get asked most often are, ‘How many girls have you had? How do you get girls?  Is it easy to get laid? [And] can you tell us some stories?’”  

“Phil Varone Groupies: The Music From Behind” answers those questions and more, and introduces attractive girls in exotic locales, Varone assures.

Varone is still active with his band Saigon Kick and shot interiors for the movie when they were on tour recently at Cheetah (formerly The Button South) in Hallandale Beach, Fla. “I remember that stop very well,” he mused. “I hooked up with a real stripper and then shot what unfolded.”
