MTV breaks from of its traditional music-video format Sunday with a gritty and controversial documentary about "groupies" who follow rock musicians from city to city in hopes of having sex with the stars. "The show tells you about what the backstage scene at rock concerts is about," said Doug Herzog, vice president of music news and special projects for the music network. "We're trying to broaden our audience." Veteran drummer Carmine Appice talks during the program about one of the most notorious groupie episodes, a bondage party at Seattle's Edgewater Inn involving members of Led Zeppelin and the Vanilla Fudge. Appice said the rockers were fishing from their balconies while partying with groupies and things got out of hand: "They abused this woman with a mudshark."
