“I cannot recall exactly when I met Anita, but I did recognise a power that would affect not just Brian (or later, Keith), but the path of The Rolling Stones. I did not care to investigate whatever that power was, but did know that whatever the upcoming chapters were to be for the Stones, Anita would be one of its main writers.” - Andrew Oldham
Anita Pallenberg, instantly recognisable as a member of The Rolling Stones’ rock ’n’ roll circus in the Sixties and Seventies, was no docile groupie. Fluent in four languages, she partied with the jet set in Rome, met Warhol, Ginsberg and Ferlinghetti in New York, was at home with London’s leading lights of popular culture and went on to star in over a dozen films, perhaps most notably in Performance.
A German-Italian rebel and social phenomenon, Anita consistently gravitated towards the next wave of movers and shakers. Full of extraordinary adventures with the rich and famous, as well as her personal triumphs and tragedies, She’s a Rainbow delves deep into her fascinating and moving story – for the first time ever.
