An iconic figure of the 1960s and '70s, Pattie Boyd breaks a 40-year silence, telling how she found herself bound to two of the most addictive, promiscuous musical geniuses of the twentieth century. She met the Beatles in 1964 in the cast of A Hard Day's Night. Ten days later George Harrison proposed. For 20-year-old Boyd, it was the beginning of a rich and complex life as she was welcomed into the Beatles' inner circle. She describes the dynamics of the group, and the memories she has of Paul and Linda, Cynthia and John, Ringo and Maureen, and especially the years with her husband, George. Then her turbulent life took another unexpected turn with a passionate letter from Eric Clapton. Now the high-profile model whose face epitomized the swinging London scene of the 1960s, a woman who inspired Harrison's song "Something" and Clapton's anthem "Layla," has wrriten her book.--From publisher description.… (mais)

This is the autobiography of Pattie Boyd, ex-model, current photographer and former wife of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton. It's her take on her difficult life with two giants of the 20th century music industry. The rarefied world of musical superstars leaves them, their spouses and hangers-on somewhat helpless in dealing with the world and vulnerable to exploitation. Her version seems totally honest as she moves through the swinging sixties and beyond, surrendering her own life and ambitions to her husbands' careers until she comes out as a survivor on the other side. This had a co-author, but could have used a little more editing because the same stories get repeated several times. Her perpetual travel and name dropping of people who aren't on anybody's radar anymore gets a bit tedious. You come away feeling sorry for Boyd, who as a young woman stumbled into this life without the maturity to handle it and then couldn't get out. ( )

ME Me me and a list of names of people , who, for the most i had no clue who they are......add a schedule of her travels and voila. There's the book. A very surface book, with the occasional interesting opinion. Found myself skipping whole paragraphs.... I AM from the era of Clapton is god and loved George Harrison but what a bunch of self -centered ingrates. Or so it seems. Yes its a bio so it should be all about her but there is a lack of depth i found to be astounding. Again, sorry. ( )

OK, I should say that I'm a bit of a nut about the Beatles, and George Harrison in particular. Also a fan of Clapton. So I expected that this book would be interesting, and when I had the chance to snap it up at a deep discount, I did so.

Mostly, this book is the most superficial treatment imaginable of the people and times it descibes. If you like name-dropping, lists of who attended what party, which drugs were consumed, and who slept with whom, this book is for you. If I didn't know that George Harrison and Eric Clapton were brilliant musicians, I might conclude from this book that they were dilettantes on the order of the rest of the characters described in the book. Those who disagree with me about Harrison's and Clapton's musical talents can draw their own conclusions.

It's not entirely without redeeming qualities, however. Somewhere beneath all the surface glitz, there are occasional honest glimpses of an insecure young woman who is trying to make sense of her milieu. Nowhere is this more poignant than the last page of the epilogue. But rather than read the whole book, I'd recommend skimming a few sections and then going to the end. ( )

(Nonfiction, Memoir)

What to make of the woman who inspired Something, Wonderful Tonight, and Layla by rock greats George Harrison and Eric Clapton?
Pattie Boyd was that woman and in this memoir she tells us about herself and what it was like living with these famous musicians in their heyday. Since that music formed the soundtrack of my youth, and that time is still vivid in my memory, I really enjoyed this memoir.

Until, that is, a few weeks after I finished the book I saw a news item that Boyd had married her ‘long-time boyfriend’, who, she many, many, many times told us in the book was nothing more than a friend. In my mind, this called into question the veracity of her entire account.

Make of this what you will; I still enjoyed reading it.

I would have liked a little more dirt and a lot more insight. ( )
