Nico, pseudonimo di Christa Päffgen , è stata una cantante, attrice e modella tedesca.

Conosciuta anche con il soprannome di "Sacerdotessa delle Tenebre", per le atmosfere gotiche e decadenti dei suoi brani, unite alla sua inconfondibile voce profonda e inquietante, è considerata la progenitrice del gothic rock.

In campo musicale raggiunse i primi riconoscimenti come collaboratrice del gruppo The Velvet Underground, partecipando all'album The Velvet Underground & Nico come cantante dei brani Femme Fatale, All Tomorrow Parties e I'll Be your Mirror. La sua avventura con i Velvet ebbe vita breve, e nel 1967 si avviò alla carriera solista.

Come solista, i suoi album più celebri sono The Marble Index del 1968 e Desertshore del 1970, spesso considerato dalla critica il suo capolavoro, entrambi prodotti da John Cale.

Frasi Nico

„It is better to be addicted to opium than to be addicted to money.“

—  Nico
Context: I think he was the first man I met who was not afraid of me in some way. We were very similar, like brother and sister. Our spirits are similar. We were the same height and the same age, almost … He was well read and he introduced me to William Blake and also the English Romantic poets who came after him. Jim liked Shelley. I preferred Coleridge. In fact, he is my favoured poet of all time. Did you know they were all drug addicts? Coleridge was addicted to opium. It is better to be addicted to opium than to be addicted to money. On her "soul brother" Jim Morrison, as quoted in Life and Lies of an Icon (1995) by Richard Witts.

„I would say the time has not yet come. I rebel against the present, whenever it is, because I have not seen any change, other than oppositions grow stronger.“

Context: I would say the time has not yet come. I rebel against the present, whenever it is, because I have not seen any change, other than oppositions grow stronger. I would be a communist if it was more anarchist. Otherwise, I see only everything as an absurdity, so I can laugh and cry. I have lived in a continuation, from birth and growing towards death in a chain that cannot end. I don't see this decade then that decade. The same things happen in different guises. I am bohemian but at one time you would call me a hippie or a punk. I remain a bohemian whatever you call me. So maybe I am locked in the fifties. But I have never desired to grow up from my world as a child, which is when things are most clear and utopian. They are clear because you are at the center and you see all around you. When you get older you lose your sight … I lost something of my childishness when people around me start dying. Four of my family died within a year. On the decade which she fit in best, as quoted in Life and Lies of an Icon (1995) by Richard Witts.

„You could say it like was like a fairy tale at the time; Andy would be the good fairy, and Jim would play the giant, Brian would be the witch, Paul McCartney would be the frog who turns into a prince, no, it would have to be the other way round.“

Well, it didn't seem like a fairy tale at the time. It was a lot of hassle. But I learned a lot of things, and I began to compose my own songs. Describing her tumultuous experiences of 1967, as quoted in Life and Lies of an Icon (1995) by Richard Witts.

„I don't have a sense of time. Time is timeless to me, and I'm not in a hurry to get older. I mean, if I were worried about time, all the time, it would be terrible.“
