Sixties model Kim McLagan, wife of former Small Faces keyboard player Ian McLagan and ex-wife of The Who's Keith Moon, has died in a car accident.
The 57-year-old was killed when her car was hit by a truck in Texas.
She was pronounced dead at the scene, local police said.
As Kim Kerrigan, she was a teenage model during the Sixties, appearing in the global broadcast of the Beatles' All You Need Is Love from Abbey Road in 1967.
She met The Who's wayward drummer at a gig in Bournemouth and soon fell pregnant.
They married in March 1966 when she was 16 and their daughter Mandy was born four months later.
But their union was troubled right from the start.
Kerrigan later claimed Moon ordered her to give up her modelling career and beat her in violent rages, breaking her nose and chasing her around their home with a shotgun.
The marriage lasted nine stormy years.
Kerrigan left Moon in 1973 and their divorce was granted in 1975.
She married McLagan in 1978, the same year Moon died of a drugs overdose.
The couple moved to the US and settled in Travis County, near Austin, Texas, in 1994, where Kerrigan opened a spa and McLagan continued his music career, producing solo albums and working with the likes of the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. The couple had no children.
Friends expressed their shock at her death.
"She was so beautiful, inside and out. Her and Mac were very much in love," said local restaurant owner Dick Simcoe.
Friend Ellen Moore said: "There was no-one on this earth who didn't think that she was an angel."
