Hi Calyx, I`ve done many research and I didn`t find anything about Nico and David Bowie. Thanks.

CalyxJun 3, 2009

My friend says that Nico dated David Bowie at one point. Is that true? If so, why isn`t he mentioned here?

little_queeniesJun 4, 2008

I`ve created a group called "Wifes, girlfriends and groupies of rock" and I`ve included her! Check it please :)
