NICO DIED ALMOST 25 years ago yet the impact of her music lives on. Her work has influenced countless other people's music. The film Nico Icon (released in 1995 and now unavailable on any format) is an incredible documentary by German filmmaker Susanne Ofteringer. Originally released in 1995, the film tells a sad story about that era and her personally, offering great insight into why things have gone so wrong today.
