Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones' and Keith Richards’ former Girlfriend, dead at 73

Bad news. Iconic Sixties character, actress and model Anita Pallenberg died. She had been the girlfriend of both Brian Jones and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones (causing major friction in the band and, ultimately, contributing to Jones being fired by the Stones).

Pallenberg has died of unknown causes and she was 73.

The news was made public by Stella Schnabel, the daughter of painter and director Julian Schnabel:

I have never met a woman quite like you Anita. I don’t think there is anybody in this universe like you. No one has ever understood me so well. You showed about life and myself and how to grow and become and exist with it all. I was a little girl thinking I was big but I became a woman through knowing you. The secret lyrical you. My best friend. The greatest woman I have ever known. Thank you for the most important lessons – because they are ever changing and definitive. Like you. We are all singing for you, how you liked it. Go in peace my Roman mother, you will always be in my heart.

I have never met a woman quite like you Anita.
