Miss Christine of the GTO`s
Loves Clothing And Makes All Her Own
Member of the LA group the GTOs during the late 60`s. She was the one who recommended Alice Cooper to Frank Zappa, whose album Hot Rats she appears on the cover of. Miss Christine was also romantically involved with musician Todd Rundgren. After the GTOs disbanded she moved to New York. She was the topic of the Flying Burrito Brothers` Christine`s Tune (Devil In Disguise) and (reportedly) Jackson Browne`s 1974 song "For a Dancer." Miss Christine died on November 5th, 1972 of an overdose in a hotel room.

She, too was born in San Pedro of Yugoslav parents. She was a "sickly kid," she says, and had a "big complex about being skinny." (She is tall and lean, the type of girl who would have been called "beanpole" by her schoolmates.) She says she is the cold, cruel one in the group, but she`s not. She`s bright and quite outgoing. She met Zappa when he returned to LA from New York for a concert, when she was living in Franzoni`s commune. When Zappa returned to LA for good, she became his housekeeper and governess to Moon Unit, Frank`s daughter. Miss Christine loves clothing and makes all her own, which can only be described as junkshop harlequin.
