4.0 out of 5 stars A Rock'n'Roll survivor, 30 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Wonderful Today: The Autobiography of Pattie Boyd (Hardcover)
This is one of the few books that allows an "outsider" to be an "insider" into the Superstar rock world. Despite the adulation that these musicians receive, one comes away from reading this book feeling that at the end of the day we shouldn't envy them too much. Despite obscene amounts of money and excesses in virtually everything materialistic and superficial, these "stars", with the exception of their talent prove to be no more content or happier, (and perhaps even less so), than the fans who idolize them. It would seem that this is the cross that many creative people have to endure. Pattie herself emerges from the wreakage remarkably well and even more amazing, with little financial support from either husband when compared to todays mega-millions that many less deserving ex celebrity wives receive in divorce settlements. Her story is both fascinating and sad and to my mind extremely well written. I never sensed any self-pity and best of all I ended up liking her very much. Unless you have an interest in George Harrison and Eric Clapton there is perhaps little for the casual reader to embrace. It might be a useful training manual for future Rock'n'Roll girlfriends to read before committing themselves to a relationship!
