BOTH FASCINATING AND INTERESTING

This is a fascinating and interesting book for those of us who came of age in the Sixties and know of whom Pattie Boyd speaks. Married to rock icons George Harrison and Eric Clapton, Pattie lived every girl's fantasy. Or so we thought.
There was a dark side to drugs...
This is a fascinating and interesting book for those of us who came of age in the Sixties and know of whom Pattie Boyd speaks. Married to rock icons George Harrison and Eric Clapton, Pattie lived every girl's fantasy. Or so we thought.
There was a dark side to drugs and rock and roll, and Pattie tells us all about it. But she also tells the good side, and so much of the insider stuff is just pure fun to read, especially when one remembers one's perceptions of how it must have been. If, however, you need to idolize George Harrison and Eric Clapton as the super rock gods they were, it's probably best not to read about them as mortal men.
With all the drugs and alcohol that Pattie did alongside her men, it's amazing she is still alive to tell the tale. Although the book drops off into a few chapters of endless (and I do mean endless) name dropping at the end, it's still worth a read if, like me, your soul never quite left the Sixties.

Interesting reading.

I always wanted to hear the story behind the woman who stole the hearts of George Harrison and Eric Clapton -- and how it affected the rockers' friendship.

    Waste of Time!

    I had to read this book for book club and everyone found Pattie Boyd to be pathetic. She wants to put the blame on all others for things that happened in her life, but never take responsibility for her actions or roles in these situations. I found myself annoyed the entire book.

    Wonderful Tonight: An Autobiography

    This book is a very confusing read in almost every way. The minute it comes to the interesting part of the story when the author meets The Beatles it starts jumping around between years making it impossible to get any insight into what is going on. She constantly romanticizes herself as a muse as if this is some great accomplishment and explanation why she put up with the abuse she claims to have suffered at the hands of Eric Clapton. We never however get answers to questions that naturally come from the narrative. For example, did she feel any guilt when she slept with her younger sisters boyfriend? Did she not throw Maureen Starkey out of the house when she arrived to pursue her husband because Eric Clapton kept showing up trying to get her to go off with him? You get the point, she never addresses her own bad behavior but underlines everyone else's. By the time she's trying heroin with her sister in the airport bathroom on the way to get her sister off this same drug, I was so frustrated with her I almost through the book out the window. This woman comes off as so clueless its hard to believe she knew what was going on around her. Maybe , shes only telling half the story but if that's the case don't buy this book because you'll be just as confused as I am.
