Don't forget he married some blondie yoga chick. I'm normally pretty good at working people out even if it's just from a photo and I was getting heavy attention seeking control freak drama vortex vibes from her.
Nico definitely had some of my favourite video parts. So smooth and stylish.
I'm loving how this thread has brought together one of the all-time stylists and well, the other guy.
I saw that Muller's wife left him at the time due to all the conspiracy stuff. From what I understood, a lot of people tried to help him but he was really far gone. Most likely too many concussions didn't help. Snowboarding will sooner or later have some sort of reckoning as far as what pros are expected to do for our entertainment and what happens to them when they become not so entertaining anymore. It happened in rugby where lots of players in their late 20s and early 30s have senile dementia due to repeated head banging. I doubt Nico will ever have a career in snowboarding again which is fair enough given the toxic garbage he was promoting but maybe the industry should have a bit more responsibility when someone loses it after a 20+ year career of tomahawking through boulder fields.
Bill Hicks: “You see, I think drugs have done some good things for us. I really do. And if you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a favor. Go home tonight. Take all your albums, all your tapes and all your CDs and burn them. 'Cause you know what, the musicians that made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few tunes.”
I think the same can be said for snowboard videos.
