Nico: The girl who couldn't shake fameAt her 1960s peak, the German vocalist Nico was "Lou Reed's femme fatale," a glamorous superstar whose name was plastered across one of the most influential records of all time. "The Velvet Underground and Nico," the 1967 collaboration on which she sung lead on just three songs, has ranked as high as 13 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.It was seen as the progenitor of much of the alternative rock that followed in the 1970s – and the album and associated tours were pretty much the only thing that interested the music press about Nico. Nicchiarelli, a fan of Nico's lesser-known later music, became intrigued by the singer after listening to her dry, laconic interview answers about her supposed heyday."Nico, 1988" is a poignant and at times hilarious chronicle of the performer's last tour of Europe before her death from a heart attack on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza in the summer of that year.
