USCHI! Obermaier.

Arguably the most beautiful groupie.

ever? It's possible.

radical. model. mick, keith, jimmy. style maker... it's quite a resume.




Uschi Obermaier was discovered by the magazine twen. Thin and petite but feminine she represented a new type of model and exposed frontal nudity for the first time on a magazine cover.


In Munich, Obermaier was briefly involved with Pamir survivor Othello (a.k.a. Rudolf Liebzeit). Obermaier moved from Munich to the Berlin-based Kommune 1 after she had become Rainer Langhans' girlfriend. Langhans and Obermaier talked openly to the media about their relationship, becoming symbols of the sexual revolution. Some commentators in Germany claim thatJohn Lennon and Yoko Ono, among others, followed their example.

Obermaier was not viewed by most in the Ausserparlamentarische Opposition as one of their activists. She did not take part in radical feminist campaigns like other female members and friends of the Kommune 1. She was best known for appearances in German magazines Der Spiegel and Stern, in which she appeared openly nude and using marijuana.

Rainer Langhans mentions in his autobiography that he and Uschi Obermaier met Peter Green in Munich, where they invited him to their "High-Fish-Commune". They were not really interested in Peter Green. They just wanted to get in contact with Mick Taylor: Langhans and Obermaier wished to organize a "Bavarian Woodstock". They wanted Jimi Hendrix and "TheRolling Stones" to be the leading acts of their Bavarian open air festival. They needed the "Green God" just to get in contact with "The Rolling Stones" via Mick Taylor.

Obermaier probably was the best known German groupie of the 1960s. She was briefly a member of the Krautrock-band Amon Düül, and is said to have had affairs with Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix.

The last two photos show Uschi with Natalia Avelon, the actress who portrayed her in the biopic Eight Miles High. It's a fun film and Uschi was involved in the entire process of making it, which lends the credibility that most biopics do not enjoy.

Uschi is in her 60's now and obviously still a stunner. She makes jewelry and lives in Topanga Canyon.
