Sometimes the zeitgeist amazes me. I was just telling you lot about Who’s Dated Who, warning you that lots of style icons were sure to come from it, and which lady catches my eye but the German sensation and raven haired beauty Uschi Obermaier (former girlfriend to Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, and Mick Jagger).
Next thing I know, I am flipping through Time Out and I read that there is a new fictionalized about of her life opening this very week called Eight Miles High. The article goes on to warn viewers that the movie has very little to say except to “Become a model, hang out with hippies, hook up with the Rolling Stones and then go globe-trotting with a mystic, mustachioed adventurer” and there isn’t much else I can add.
Obermaier was a lucky and stunningly gorgeous girl who happened to fall in with famous musicians and was outspoken about her sexual freedom… or so I thought.
I think I am in love.
