Georg Danzer 1980


Austrian singer Georg Danzer on the back-page poster in Bravo of 6 November 1980. He was attracting attention at the time for his song “Zehn kleine Fixer” about heroin addiction and society’s lack of care for them.

See this video, and if you understand German, listen to teenage Desirée Nosbusch’s excellent interview with Danzer at the end of it.



Kristy McNichol & Desirée Nosbusch 1981

Both of them have featured many times in Bravo, and on this site, McNichol more times than Nosbusch.
