My name is Suzanne. I have known Geraldine Edwards, now Geraldine Flemming-Mueller, since 1975. I met her through going backstage, to wit, I was hanging out at the San Diego Sports arena when I was a teenager hoping to get a chance to get backstage to one of the concerts. I really did not know what I was doing, but I had seen Geraldine going backstage to all of the concerts that I had hung out at. She looked friendly, not hard, like pictures of some of the groupies I had seen, and I felt comfortable enough to approach her and ask her how I could go about getting backstage. She turned out to be really nice and really intelligent, and told me that if I was willing to listen to her about what to do and what to not do, she would take me backstage with her. This was at the Electric Light Orchestra's show. I agreed. She made it perfectly clear to me that in every social structure, even in the groupie lifestyle, there would be rules and regulations if you wanted to be successful. I thought she might know what she was talking about so I took her advice and did as she instructed me to do. I got to date Keith Moon, Keith Emerson and Rick Derringer, among others. I was always gratful to her for giving me the chance and the great advice. She never referred to herself or the others that hung around with her as "band-aids" and she never OD'd either. But I was part of a group of girls that pretty much listened to Geraldine that referred to ourselves as "the Ladies." Geraldine's nickname was "Mom" because she was always clucking over us, and she would not let any of us leave town with a musician that we really did not know that well without our mad money or a phone number to call in the event of an emergency. She was and is very smart about situations of any kind and a good judge of character. In other words, if something was going off the rails, she could tell right away, and she would try to get herself and her group away from a problem or dangerous situation. As I said, her judgment was good so we would listen to her. One time Scooter Herring, the Allman Brothers road manager invited me and some of the other ladies over to his room after a show at Balboa Stadium. Geraldine did not like the looks of Herring or his behavior and warned us not to attend the party. We ignored her this time and insisted on going. She then said she was going to join us to keep an eye on things because she was suspicious of the man. None of us were twenty-one, so Herring said he would order cocktails for us. We were too young to go into the bar. Geraldine had said that Dicky Betts had warned her about Herring and told her that he did not trust him, so she watched Herring like a hawk. She caught him putting something in our drinks when they arrived and while Herring's back was turned she silently mouthed the words "Do not drink those drinks. Herring just dumped something in them. Were leaving." When he turned around, we acted normal. Each of us except for one girl went to the restroom, one by one, and dumped the drinks into the toilet. The girl that insisted on drinking her cocktail was ready to pass out. We got the girl out of the room and got out of there as quickly as we could. Geraldine cautioned us to stay away from the man and not take his calls. The following day he was busted for possession of heroin. We were horrified. As I said, a smart lady. Needless to say, me and Geraldine have stayed in contact over the years. I last spoke with her about a month and a half ago. I asked her if she would mind if I wrote something about her on this site as I wanted people to know the type of person she was, someone I respected and liked since I was a teenager. She said O.K., so I finally got up the gumption to write. You really won't find any biograpies written of Geraldine because she has turned down all offers to write a book or to have websites posted about her. She said and I quote "Susie, there are so many more important people to read about than myself. I would not even consider it." All the contributions to this site are correct. This is the basic information that she does not mind being revealed. She first started going backstage to rock concerts when she was fourteen. The first rock star she met was Peter Wolf in 1971, who took her backstage to her first concert. She continued going backstage routinely until 1976. After that she attended concerts sporadically, but she would still go backstage once in a while. She did in fact attend Clairemont High School and San Diego State College after that. And she does hold two graduate degrees, and is a Legal Administrator. She has dated many musicians. I remember the night that Eric Clapton appoached her and introduced himself to her. For once, Geraldine, who was silver tongued, was at a loss for words. I reminded her of that night more than once. All the names listed as those that Geraldine dated are right on. She does have two brothers and two sisters, whose names are Allison, Roxanne, Daniel and William. Her brothers are now in their sixties. She got married to her husband, who is charming, handsome, and intelligent, he is both a Doctor and a Lawyer, go figure, in 2006. They are very, did I say very, happily married. She had no children, and she lives in Los Angeles County, with homes in New York and England. She had done great. She and her husband are heavily involved in charites and are both really nice people. I remember when Almost Famous came out, some of the girls, now women, wanted to give her a party to celebrate. She told me at that time that her boyfriend, who was no other than Robert Palmer, was really upset about the whole thing. He told his entourage and friends that he did not even want to hear the name of that film, period. He really did not want to even think of Geraldine as having ever dated anyone but him. He was that way about her. Geraldine still takes the time to keep in contact with those that were her friends. I can't really write a biography about her because I am not a writer and she would not like one written anyway, but I wanted to put down my impressions of her.
