Comments for PATTIE:

Pattie Boyd, English model and photographer, is best known as the first wife of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton. She met Harrison on the set of the film "A Hard Day's Night" in 1964 and they married in 1966. After leaving Harrison in 1974 (and divorcing him completely in 1977) due to his continuous infidelities, Pattie finally went to Eric Clapton, who had been seducing her for years even though he was one of Harrison's best friends. She divorced Clapton in 1989, again due to his infidelities.

Pattie Boyd inspired some of each man's most famous songs, such as "Something" written by George Harrison (though he claims it was in fact not written about Pattie but no one in particular) and "Layla", "Bell Bottom Blues", and "Wonderful Tonight" by Clapton. In fact, her autobiography is entitled "Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me".
