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.

    Oh, Pattie... we expected so much more!

    Geez, this book was more a compilation of old 16 Magazines and a few Hunter Davis books tossed in for good measure.

    Here was THE woman of the 60s, married to a handsome Beatle, a famous model, actually, George and Pattie were the FIRST to start off that crazy "Rocker/Model" marriage thing... think about it. No one else did before them.

    Next time out, Pattie... here's what we wanna know:

    WHAT was it like on that first date?... How did you feel when George first kissed you? Where were you when he first said I love you?
    How could Cynthia Lennon go on vacation with you and George knowing John had a secret crush on you?
    Are you still friends with her?

    We were there through all of it with you, and so, when you write a "tell -all" that's what we expected -- next time, please fill in the blanks.

    Blah

    This is a okay book for a rainy day. Boyd's experiences as the wife of Harrison and Clapton are interesting but I felt as though she was playing it a little safe in the telling. I also felt that at times Pattie talked herself up, and some of the people and details she included were after thoughts to fill pages. It sounds like she has led a very interesting life, but at the end of this book I didn't feel as though she was a whole lot wiser.

    what a fool.......

    I feel sorry for her. She lived life with her heart and not her head. No wonder Yoko and Linda caught such flak - they actually had brains and used them and the rock 'n roll boys don't like that apparently. All the wives/girlfriends were treated badly in this book and put up with such nonsense from the mentioned rockers... it's mind boggling. How many times does your man have to display such lack of respect for you that you finally stand up and do something?

    Wonderful Tonight: An Autobiography

    This book is an illustraion of enomous frustation. Between the factual errors disjointed storytelling, and misidentified photos its hard to tell if Pattie had any real input into this book or if she just doesn't remember. If you're looking for any new facts about the biggest entertainment phenomenom in history look elsewhere because at times I wondered if the whole thing was a hoax and she wasn't really there. As for her part in the infamous love triangle one gets the feeling she is twisting the timeline to make herself look better.All in all, if you want to read about someone who is only happy when shes at a party this is the book for you.
