(#20) LAYLA!!

I'm pretty sure Pattie Boyd has one of the most interesting life stories in the world.

Let's see...
Childhood spent in KENYA

Modeled in London in the 1960s...sigh.

Yeah, that's her and Twiggy.

Was not only in A Hard Day's Night...

...but married ol' George Harrison...

...inspired one of the most romantic Beatles songs (and there are a lot of those) ever...
[that'd be "Something," by the way.]

...AND inspired one of the most desperately longing songs in rock history along with the album that came with it...

AND married Eric Clapton, God of the Guitar himself.
and probably lots of cool other stuff along the way.

Geez Louise, what have I been doing with my life?

I learned all this from this book, which I read a few months ago. It definitely could have been better, but it was still endlessly fascinating.


  1. Its a bit apparent that she wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but you can't argue that she didn't led an incredible life! xo.

  2. I'm in the middle of reading this book right now.

  3. True true. I mean, going from George to Eric? No way, Jose! :)

    Did you borrow the book from Katie too, Allison?
