Wonderful Tonight

May 4, 2009

An iconic figure of the 1960's and 70's, Pattie Boyd breaks a forty-year silence in Wonderful Tonight, and tells the story of how she found herself bound to two of the most addictive and promiscuous musical geniuses of the twentieth century, George Harrison and Eric Clapton, and became the most famous muse in the history of rock and roll.

For the first time Pattie Boyd, former wife of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton, a high profile model whose face epitomized the swinging London scene of the 1960's, a woman who inspired Harrison's song "Something" and Eric Clapton's anthem "Layla" has decided to write a book that is rich and raw, funny and heartbreaking---and totally honest and open and breathtaking.
