Subject: Sweet Sweet Connie is Dead.. and That’s a Natural Fact

Written By: LyricBoy on 08/22/21 at 8:21 pm

Legendary rock groupie Connie Hamzy, who at the tender age of 17 was immortalized by the Grand Funk Railroad rock band, has passed away at 66.  :\'(

Back in ‘73 she scored a mention in GFR’s #1 hit We’re an American Band with the line:

Sweet, sweet Connie was doin’ her act. She had the whole show and that’s a natural fact!

She also got mentioned in Cheap Trick’s tune, Standing on the Edge.  :o

Connie’s conquests were beyond enumeration, including but not limited to Peter Frampton, Dan Fogelberg (and his manager), Kiss, Queen (likely excluding Freddy Mercury), Huey Lewis, Pantera, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Steppenwolf, Dr. John, Vanilla Ice :o, the Doobie Brothers, the Eagles, and both Van Halen brothers. Neil Diamond, too. She claimed that at one point, even future president Bill Clinton had propositioned her when he was Governor of Arkansas.  Which given that she was a woman from Arkansas, would not be that unexpected for ol’ Bill. Clinton told a different version, in which Connie reputedly ran into Bill at a hotel lobby and pulled down her top for Bill’s inspection ;D
