Astrid Kirchherr

Graham Reid, New Zealand Herald, The, 1994

AT 55, ASTRID Kirchherr still loves rock music and listens to it every day: The Beatles, the Doors, Bowie... "and Prince, he's such a genius – if he just wouldn't wear those stupid clothes! I always wanted him to look serious, young and sexy. But he dressed like an old prostitute in drag."
