Linda Keith (model)
This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. (November 2018)
In the mid-1960s Linda became well connected culturally in the early days of "Swinging London". She was photographed by David Bailey and, together with Shiela Klein, partner of the Rolling Stones' manager Andrew Oldham, was at the heart of a bohemian community in London's West Hampstead. She formed relationships with Keith Richards of the Stones and, later in New York, Jimi Hendrix, but drifted into drug dependency. Richards appears to have been instrumental in Alan Keith's going out to America to find his daughter. On their return she was made a ward of court. She later brought up her own family and, in 2010, was living in New Orleans. According to Richards, Linda Keith was the subject of the Rolling Stones song "Ruby Tuesday". The song includes the lyrics "[w]hen you change with every new day / Still I'm gonna miss you".
In the film Jimi: All is by my Side it is suggested Jimi Hendrix also wrote the song "Red House Over Yonder" about Linda.
