Christa Päffgen, más conocida como Nico , fue una cantautora, modelo y actriz alemana. Es conocida tanto por su colaboración con The Velvet Underground, como por su trabajo como solista.

Si bien es más conocida por su trabajo musical, tuvo también un puñado de papeles en el cine, incluyendo una pequeña aparición en la aclamada película de Federico Fellini de 1960, La Dolce Vita. Fue amiga cercana y colaboradora artística de Andy Warhol, por lo que también actuó en varios papeles en sus películas de arte experimental, especialmente Chelsea Girls, lo cual la inspiró después a titular su álbum debut. Falleció el 18 de julio de 1988, como consecuencia de un accidente en bicicleta. Tenía parentesco con Hermann Päffgen, quien fundó la fábrica de cerveza Päffgen en 1883 en Colonia. Nico era sorda de un oído, lo que frecuentemente le traía problemas para escuchar lo que le decían, así como el equivocarse en alguna nota en el piano.

„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.

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.
