Style Icons: Female »Uschi Obermaier

German Groupie

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 found out on further examination that Uschi Obermaier was also once a member of Amon Duul – the initial radical commune incarnation of (my beloved) Amon Duul II. Wow.

I think I am in love.

    I stumbled upon this site because I just read an article about Chrissie Shrimpton selling some of Mick Jaggers locks and wanted to look some up to date pictures of her… I stumbled over a site catalogueging the relationships of stars – Mick Jagger has an awfully long list. And her face came up of course.
    I think she was one of the most beautiful girls of her time. She was indeed very lucky and she lived it to the fullest. I really thought those rough times would be visible in her face and on her body. Neither. She is still one of the most beautiful people that I came across. In her mid-sixties (oh, the irony) , she still looks incredible. I saw her a few years ago in an one on one talk show and she was very likeable, too.,-Uschi-Obermaier-nennt-Langhans-traurige-Witzfigur-_arid,245668.html Gosh. If I were a man back in the sixties…
