Michael Des Barres on Being Signed to Led Zeppelin’s Label

Before Michael Des Barres spent the late '80s trying to kill MacGyver on TV as master-of-disguises villain Murdoc, he was a hell of a rock singer. Des Barres' slinky vocals were first heard with Silverhead, a British glam-rock band with a hard-rock edge in the early '70s. By the late '70s, Des Barres had fallen in love with muse-deluxe Miss Pamela and moved to Los Angeles to live with her. But then, "she got a soap opera as an actress and went to New York and I was left with a hairdryer and a couple hundred bucks," Des Barres recalls.
