Publisher's Summary

An iconic figure of the 1960s and '70s, Pattie Boyd breaks a 40-year silence in Wonderful Tonight, and tells the story of how she found herself bound to two of the most addictive, promiscuous musical geniuses of the 20th century and became the most famous muse in the history of rock and roll. She met the Beatles in 1964 when she was cast as a schoolgirl in A Hard Day's Night. Ten days later, a smitten George Harrison proposed. For 20-year-old Pattie Boyd, it was the beginning of an unimaginably rich and complex life as she was welcomed into the Beatles inner circle. She describes the dynamics of the group, the friendships, the tensions, the music-making, and the weird and wonderful memories. It was a sweet, turbulent life, but one that would take an unexpected turn, starting with a simple note that began "dearest L" from Eric Clapton.
For the first time, Boyd, former wife of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton, a woman who inspired Harrison's song "Something" and Clapton's anthem "Layla", gives us her story: rich and raw, funny and heartbreaking, and totally honest and open and breathtaking.

Interesting, but too short

Too bad there isn't an unabridged version of this title. At barely 2 hours long in the abridged version, this is an entertaining and interesting piece of work, but even some of the information readily available from Ms. Boyd's recent interviews is lacking.

Overall, enjoyed it

I wish this book would have been offered in the unabridged version. I found what she had to say interesting and it was fun to hear about the rock'n'roll stars she knew.
