The sexy German model was with the Rolling Stones on their ’75 tour, and bedded both Mick & Keef. Uschi later rated the boys, saying, “Mick is the most charming man in the world, but Keith is the better lover. He just knows the anatomy of women…”

When Anita got word of Keef’s tryst with Uschi, she furiously charged at him, and grabbed him by the hair and screamed, “You f*cking messer, You’ve been messing with this bird!”

Uschi makes it clear that she and Keith loved each other– and that while Anita often lamented over Keef’s lacking libido, Uschi, by her account, had no problem keeping her man in bed for days at a time. “With me, there was never a problem.”

I wanted everything from this world. I wanted to experience it all

and to live in the here and now.” –Uschi Obermaier

The biography on Uschi Obermaier, High Times, chronicles her wild, sexy life and times–

“Uschi Obermaier was the erotic symbol of the counterculture, the pop icon of the sixties and seventies, a model, film star, groupie, and lover– yet never let herself be pigeonholed or stereotyped. Her life of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll was like a road movie– dynamic, wild, at dizzying velocity, and completely freed from all bourgeois values. ‘I would betray any revolution for this woman,’ said Rainer Langhans, at whose side she posed unclad for Kommune 1. Turning her back on the politically ineffectual revolutionaries, she set off to do her own thing, to search for fun times and the ultimate kick. Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards– Uschi was craved by many. When something was going on she was always there, right in the middle. Finally she fell into undying love with Dieter Bockhorn, the Prince of Kiez, and travelled with him in his RV around the world.”

“Don’t dream your life. Live your dreams.” –Uschi Obermaier

  1. I searched deep and wide for images that are the typical scanned crap everyone rehashes of Uschi, and spent some time tweaking them to TSY perfection for y’all.

    Glad you all enjoy.

  2. Coincidently, I just finished reading Keith Richards autobiography ‘Life’ in which he writes about her.

  3. if a handful of things pop up in my mind that munich can be proud of, uschi would be number one ( löwenbräu bier and the old pinakothek would follow suit).

  4. Topanga Canyon has so many stories it borderlines on being insane. She is piping hot! a true Snackalita!

  5. “Eight Miles High” is an outstanding movie. It is available on Netflix and I recommend it very highly.

  6. I spent my childhood winters on the beaches between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. In the 80’s, there wasn’t anything there but a bunch of people in trailers and tents, fishing, surfing, drinking tequila, and getting all kinds of naughty.

    Uschi and her old man were regular fixtures there. They had a silver Mercedes motorhome with a world map painted on the side, tortoise-shell cabinets, and a big bed in the back.

    She was ungodly hot, even then, and was really nice to me. Always remembering my name and being charming and funny. And shameless.

    Thank you for the amazing memories.
