    Reading Keefs book, she gets a mention on the death of Gram Parsons and before Keefs last marriage.
    I googled her and the Peter Green connection was made, she didn't know Greeny but wanted to connect with Mick Taylor for a Bavarian Woodstock event.
    Peter never really recovered from their meeting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uschi_Obermaier
    Do we have any more info on this disaster?:angel:

    Anita and Marrianne were also wilfully exotic and beautiful but the Bavarian Barbarian mixed with with a stranger crowd and lured Greeny into world he was seemingly unprepared for .

    I'm annoyed at Keefs book for skating over various difficult moments,
    Ry Cooder was one for me and I have always been interested in who knobbled another great guitarist ,P Green.
    Uschi introduced him to acid and he binged and fell,they didnt know who he was and just wanted him as a conduit to attract the Stones to Bavaria.
    This was a very krass move, imho and Keef nary mentions it.

    No body liked Turner.......he was in a bath with Keefs girlfriend, any how thats not the point.

    Greeny was knobbled by a Kraut groupie.

    Alex
    She probably tipped him into schizophrenia with unlimited acid.

    Well Roger ..his mind was bent out of shape already , methinks.

    He could have refused to take it..unless it was slipped into his drink.

    Pity, prefered him to Hendrix at the time.

    I saw Fleetwood Mac live tail end of 1969.

    Greeny first tried acid in 1969, courtesy of Owsley, and was no novice user by May 1970. The "Munich trip" is part myth.

    According to the man himself, he tripped, enjoyed himself, jamming with some avant-garde musicians and felt "fresh" the day after. McVie and Fleetwood often mention this as a turning point after which Green left the band (which he had plans to do months earlier).

    The "Kommune" influence was likely not brain-destroying acid, but philosophical; play uncommercial music for free outside of the star system of the rock business. Which must have scared the wits out of McVie and Fleetwood - look where the band ended up later in the 70's.

    Interesting voice.
    Her husband was decapitated on the eve of Keefs last marriage in Mexico.
    He was in a motorcycle accident in the same resort
    Dieter Bockhorn, a Reeperbahn club owner
    They had travelled the hippy known world in a fur lined Mercedes bus
    Her previous partner Rainer Langhans is also in this clip
    They were the original John and Yoko template.
