WHAT a fantastic read.
Easily one of the best music books to COME OUT EVER. --and i have hundreds.VERY differcult to put down poignant,tearfull,cheerfull, honest it tells the story of what a fairly attractive women COULD acheive in the late 60's/70's innocent fun,starting as a gofer, getting to know the beatles, getting into the *inner circle* always on the edge of getting finished/sacked Chris O'Dell tells her story graphically, from friendships with the various wives of RINGO,GEORGE,CLAPTON her various flings with stars on the road moving up from secretary to assistent to full road manager and life on the road and JUST how differcult that job can be, -I REALLY enjoyed her discription of managing CSNY in 74 well in realitly managing Crosby and Stills-- enfant terribles--and acting like spoilt brats.
HER RUN INS WITH ERIC CLAPTON --who disliked her friendship with pattie and had some terrible put down lines__ like on her wedding day party
* so how did it take you so long to hook up to the aristocrasy miss O'Dell??* Lord Bristol laughted that one off.
but HOW indeed?? how did a young girl from Tucson, Arizona manage to work with the Beatles, Stones, CSNY, the rolling thunder revue with Dylan Santana, Linda Ronstadt, be involved with the concert for Bangladesh?? eventuaaly get married to a english lord?? The drink. The drugs. WELL BETTER BUY THE BOOK AND FIND OUT!!

A great read. Chris worked closely with the Beatles, the Stones, Bob Dylan, CSNY and many others. Plus she was right there at the George/Eric/Pattie love triangle. This insider account has much wit and pathos. So many brilliant stories and very eloquently told. Highly recommended.

An incredible story of life in the life of the Beatles and Apple. After a party an American girl follows up a throw-away remark from Derek Taylor when he says 'OH, You should come to London and work for me at Apple...' Weeks later she literally takes up the offer, borrows money from her parents for a plane ticket and finds herself at the centre of Beatles life - and she has the photos to prove it.
An engrossing read. If I had known that it had been so easy to get a job at Apple with the Beatles I would have done it - even though I was only 13 years old at the time!

Format: Hardcover
Books by axe-grinding groupies like Frannie Schwartz and Pamela des Barre make me tired. This book is a refreshing change of pace from the groupie genre and let it be known that Miss Chris O'Dell was NOT a groupie. She was friends with many professionals in the music business and, like Olivia Arias (later Mrs. George Harrison) had a job that placed her in contact with these professionals. This is a serious memoir that is not meant to be titillating nor shocking. Unlike the books by authors such as Ms. Schwartz and des Barre, this is NOT of the "National Enquirer" ilk.

Miss O'Dell provides fresh, personal insights and information about some of the world's greatest musicians, such as George Harrison and Eric Clapton and Leon Russell. She is a bright, conventional woman who keeps her head and her character intact. She is impressed with her rock friends and her respect for them and her rise above sycophantism make her someone to respect. Nobody likes or can respect a toady.

Chris O'Dell has had many interesting life experiences. She even typed the lyrics to some of George Harrison's works. She was also present when George declared that he was in love with Maureen "Mo" Starkey, Ringo's wife. Ringo point-blank told George that he was glad it was someone he knew who was interested in his wife as opposed to some stranger.

Miss O'Dell worked at Apple records during its inception and very early days and was friends with Derek Taylor. Her friendship with drummer Jim Gordon would end on a tragic note. In the early 1980s Gordon committed a heinous crime, matricide and is currently serving a life sentence.

George Harrison would dedicate a song to her, the eponymously titled "Miss O'Dell" and Leon Russell would later pen "Pisces Apple Lady.
