You Got the Silver

Anita Pallenberg frightens me a little bit, but she is utterly fascinating. I get the feeling that she could eat people like me for breakfast. Anyway, I find her aesthetically and personally very intriguing. She's not exactly beautiful, but she is very attractive and striking. And she definitely knows how to wear clothes. Add in her riveting German accent and alluring, biting smile, and you have a lasting icon.

Marianne Faithfull says Keith Richards wrote You Got the Silver for her, which is one of my absolute favorite songs.

I just love this picture of her in St. Tropez for Mick and Bianca Jagger's wedding. What a fantastic outfit! Best of all-- that's not even her kid! I'm not sure who his parents are (drug dealers maybe?) but I don't know that I would trust Anita Pallenberg with my child...

Anita is a powerful and almost mythological figure. At one point she had three Rolling Stones wrapped around her fingers. She was an inspiration and agony to Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards during the height of their popularity. She was Marianne Faithfull's partner in crime in the 1960s, and self-destructed almost as spectacularly afterward. According to Keith Richards' Life, she went dramatically insane and drug crazy for a period of time, but is all better now.
