Trixie Merkin

Trixie Merkin (not her real name, a merkin is a pubic wig).
Trixie dropped out of Stanford and joined the Anonymous Artists of America.
“They terrorize the countryside. Riding from town to town, painting the center line
on all the highways in America red.”
Trixie posed topless to further a myth perpetuated by Blood Sweat and Tears founder
Al Kooper that she played topless in the band.

  1. I saw Trixie play in a small hall in SF, in 1967, Not topless, but in a short skirt with no undies. Sometimes she’d run to the front of the stage and give the boys a thrill. (and boys, we were!)
    She was with the Anonymous Artists of America. First time I ever saw a Moog.
    I somehow remembered her, and almost fell over in the mid 70’s, when Rolling Stone had a photo of her. Sigh… Thanks for the memories!
