Is there a bio or photos of geraldine Edwards the groupie that the character penny lane of almost famous was based on?
No, there is no biography of Geraldine Edwards. She has expressed no interest in having one created and she has been asked. There are a few pictures of her on the Internet, one of her walking with Robert Palmer at an awards show and another of her and Robert Palmer sitting on the beach taken near his beachfront Del Mar Estate at Blackstar Beach. And she is the model on Robert Palmer's 1975 Pressure Drop. She was Robert Palmer's girlfriend at the time of his death. There was another picture of her walking in London with her brother-in-law and her husband. And there was one of her walking at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel with Eric Clapton from the seventies. She has stated that she prefers that her image not be posted to the Internet, however. She is a private person. There is some information about her available through credible sources, i.e., friends and associates of hers. She only gave two interviews in her life, both in the seventies, and decided that she would give no others. I am sure she thinks there are other people more newsworthy than her. She was born in San Diego, California, in the fifties. Her full name is Geraldine Angel Edwards. She attended Clairemont High School in the seventies, and went on to attend College earning her Associates in Paralegal Studies. She eventually earned her Masters in Paralegal Sciences and Business Administration. She started going backstage to Rock Concerts in 1971, on a lark. She wanted to see if she could do it. She was more than successful at this. The first person who invited her backstage was Peter Wolf who was then in the J. Geils Band. And the rest as they say, is history. She has dated a whos who of musicians, including Eric Clapton, Roger Daltry, Rick Springfield, Rod Price and many others. She was close to many in the music scene, including a couple of Record company presidents, vice-presidents and two Record Company owners. She continued going backstage until 1977. The last concert she went backstage to in 1977 was the Who, where she met Roger Daltry, at the San Diego Sports Arena. From then on she would only occasionally attend her friends concerts, and not on a regular basis. Her parents names were Tamara and Samuel Edwards. Both are now deceased. She has four siblings, William, Daniel, Roxanne and Allison and ten nieces and nephews. She has no children. She is married to a Medical/Legal Expert by the name of Anthony Flemming-Mueller. They have been married since 2006, and met in early 2004. She is a small business owner since the nineties. She has worked in the field of law since 1980. She worked for the Attorney General's Office for the State of California for a number of years. She is now working as a Legal Administrator. She has received offers on two occasions to write a memoir about her personal experiences. She has politely declined those offers. She respects peoples privacy. She has had an interesting life and has some interesting relatives. She was the County Psychic for the City of San Diego for three years. Her relatives include Douglas Edwards, the first newscaster on television. He was her second cousin. Her great grandfather was Aleister Crowley on her mothers side. And her grandfather on her father's side was a Circuit Court Judge. One of her paternal aunts dated and almost married R.J. Reynolds Jr., but changed her mind. She has some interesting people in her family. About her experiences as a groupie, she has said to those close to her that she was glad to have had the experiences, but that life is an ongoing process. You can not live in the past. And according to her friends, she is enjoying her life now, and always has at least three irons in the fire at any given time. She is definitely ambitious and goal oriented, just not about getting personal publicity for herself. She is very happy in her marriage and in her life.

Was geraldine Edwards Robert palmers girlfriend and the woman who dated Eric clapton rick springfield roger daltry and others the woman almost famous was written about?
Yes she was. Geraldine Edwards met Cameron Crowe in San Diego, California, in 1975 backstage at the San Diego Sports Arena. At the time Cameron Crowe was interested in being a… Sports Writer and was a fan of the San Diego Gulls. Geraldine suggested that he widen his range and interview all types of people, including musicians. He took her advice and found that he actually preferred interviewing musicians. It was written in some articles that Pam DeBarres and Bebe Buell were partial inspirations for the Penny Lane character. That is not correct. Penny Lane was eighteen years old and a San Diegan who was a groupie who hung around the "World Famous San Diego Sports Arena." That was the history of Geraldine Edwards, not DeBarres and Buell. In addition to that, Cameron Crowe cited Geraldine's name as the inspiration for Penny Lane in an 2000 interview.
Is it true that geraldine Edwards the late Robert palmers girlfriend and the woman almost famous was written about helped mix the sound on the winter bros Frankenstein live?
According to Rodney Bingenheimer's interview with Geraldine Edwards which took place in 1975, that is true. Geraldine Edwards met the legendary Shelley Yakus, who is hands dow…n the must famous record producer in the world, and who owned the Record Plant at the time, in 1974, backstage at the San Diego Sports Arena. She was seventeen years old at the time. Shelley Yakus took a shine to her, and told her that he was going to be recording "Frankenstein Live" that night for the Winters Brothers and that Rick Derringer was going to be onstage helping them out. He asked her if she would like to help him in doing this, and she said yes. What she actually did on the recording was monitor Danny Hartman's base levels and label the tape boxes, but she enjoyed the experience, saying that she now had a "new respect for sound men who worked at live performances. Mixing a live show requires serious skill and talent." Geraldine and Shelley Yakus, who was John Lennon's sound producer and worked with a who's who of superstars, remained friends. Geraldine Edwards was given credit on the first thousand copies of Frankenstien Live released in 1975, listed as a "production assistant" as a gift from Shelley Yakus.
Geraldine Edwards does not release photos of herself to the internet. Although she is not reclusive, the opposite would be true, she prefers to keep her likeness private. On f…our occasions, pictures of herself were posted to the internet. She discreetly contacted the agents who posted the pictures and had them removed. There are two pictures of Geraldine Edwards still posted, one of her attending an awards ceremony with Robert Palmer, and one of her posing with her mother-in-law, taken in England. Also, she is the model on the cover of Robert Palmer's 1975 Pressure Drop. But in general, you will not find many pictures of her publicly posted as that is her preference.

You are not the first person to ask that question.

Is Geraldine Edwards the rock groupie Almost Famous was based on and the late Robert Palmer's fiancee an attorney?
No, she is not. I am a friend of her oldest nephew, who is forty years old, by the way.

In Religion & Spirituality
Did geraldine edwards the rock muse robert palmers fiancee and one of the women almost famous was written about join the order of the golden dawn?
No, Geraldine Edwards is not a member of The Order of the Golden Dawn. Geraldine Edwards great grandfather was a member of the Order, and although certain people expressed an …interest in meeting Edwards, billing themselves as members of the Order in the 1970's, it was generally understood that the Order as her great grandfather had known it had in fact disbanded. Several groups of people billed themselves as members of the Ordrer of the Golden Dawn but they were generally regarded as offshoots of the original Order. In addition to that, Geraldine Edwards is a known Femininist, although she does use her married name and has since her 2006 marriage to her husband, Anthony Flemming-Mueller. That is one of her few concessions to conventionality. The Order of the Golden Dawn often referred to their female accoytes as concubines, a term Geraldine Flemming-Mueller did not approve of, nor did she approve of women taking a back-seat to men in general, and the Order did view women as attachments to men. If a woman ascended in the Order she was deemed a Priestess. Geraldine made a public comment that the title Priestess being conferred upon a woman within the Order meant that the woman had properly subjugated her natural instincts and dignity, and was now not threat to the male members in any way. She was there to serve. The title Priestess was confered as a reward for doing so. She also added that some of these women learned to regret their decision when they were asked out of the fold without a second thought. Geraldine Flemming-Mueller has made comment on many occasions that she is not a joiner of any dogmatic or spiritual disicpline or philosophy, but said she definitely has a leaning toward Gnostism. She has respect for any philosophy that improves a person's life and is not judgmental about a person's belief system, no matter how unsual it may be. Somebody once said she was a Wiccan. She is not, although she has had may Wiccan friends. She is not attached to any Judeo/Christian religion, including Christianity. bit understands and respects that belief systems are important and necessary for people. She has her own belief system, which is that you should do your best while your upon the earth. Your actions, good or bad, leave their impression after you are gone like footprints in the sand. But no, she is not a member of The Order of the Golden Dawn, past of present, and I can make this statement with authority. Geraline was a good friend of my late sister, Devon, for twenty years, until my sister's death in 2002, may she RIP.

What is the story behind the Wikipedia editor who was convicted of internet harassment against Geraldine Edwards the inspiration for penny lane in almost famous and Robert palmers fiancee?
It is true that Geraldine Edwards, now Geraldine Flemming-Mueller,she's been married for over eight years now to her husband AnthonyFlemming-Mueller, was attacked via the Inte…rnet by a Wikipediaeditor whom I am unable to name due to legal reasons, however hisWikipedia handle begins with B. The background story is that thisWikipedia editor launched an Internet assault and smear campaignagainst Geraldine Flemming-Mueller, making both violent andpornographic comments about her, and creating three websitesattacking her in an illegal manner. The malignant attacks weretraced back to a Wikipedia editor who lives in Oakland, and afriend of Mary Ambrose, who was a former girlfriend of RobertPalmer. Geraldine Edwards was Robert Palmer's fiancee at the timeof his death. Although Geraldine Flemming-Mueller has never metMary Ambrose, Ambrose has launched personal attacks on her over theyears. This time she launched an attack against GeraldineFlemming-Mueller through her friend of over two years, thisWikipedia editor. When the attacks were traced back to this OaklandWikipedia editor, he was arrested and questioned. He freelyadmitted when interviewed by the police that he and Mary Ambrosehad decided that Geraldine Edwards had to be 'taken down a peg' and'put in her place.' He didn't understand that his actions wereillegal and argued the point with the police. He explained that hehad met with Mary Ambrose in San Francisco, where she was visitingat the time, on several occassions between late November and earlyDecember 2013 to plan their actions towards GeraldineFlemming-Mueller, once again citing that there was nothing illegalin his actions. His and Ambrose's motivation in doing this,according to this Wikipedia editor was to teach 'this arrogantwoman what the world really thinks of her.' When Mary Ambrose wascontacted at the residence of her boyfriend, whom financiallysupports her, and whom she lives with, to inquire about thesituation, she denied knowing this Wikipeida editor altogether.When the police advised her that they had in their possession timestamped photos of herself and the Wikipedia editor taken in SanFrancisco taken between late November and early December of 2013,as well as records of texts, voicemails, and phone calls she madeto him, she then admitted that 'I guess I might know him, but we'renot friends.' According to all reports, the emails she made to thisman were clearcut in their malignant intentions towards GeraldineFlemming-Mueller. Regardless of this, Mary Ambrose insisted thatshe had nothing to do with the internet attack on GeraldineEdwards, and that this Wikipedia editor had acted on his own. Inshort, she hung him out to dry. This man also refused to believethat Mary Ambrose had initially denied knowledge of him, saying'Untrue. Mary and I are the very best of friends. She would neversay that about me. No way. I spoke with her yesterday for overtwenty minutes.' He then accessed his phone log showing this to betrue. He was charged and convicted of Internet Slander andDefamaion, as well as Internet Obscentiy. He was put on parole fortwo years, although he will serve no time behind bars due to thefact that he has no prior convictions, in addition to being givencourt ordered therapy. Insomuch as he has been diagnosed with abona fide mental disorder ascertained by the PschologicalEvalutation her underwent, in conjunction with the hostile actionshe demonstrated towards Geraldine Flemming-Mueller, a TRO had beengranted to Tony and Geraldine Flemming-Mueller that orders thisWikipeida editor to stay 5000 yards away from them at all times.
