This is Christa Paffgen, better known as Nico, another addict, model and chanteuse who spent time with the Velvet Underground and Warhol's entourage. She had a child, Ari, by French heart throb Alain Delon, a child whose paternity he's always denied despite a spitting image resemblance. The child was pretty much abandoned at his paternal grandmother's. She sang with a thick German accent, and a gloomy, stretched out voice completely devoid of any hint of vocal pirouettes.
