Saturday, April 07, 2018

Something in the way she moved attracted not only Beatles legend George Harrison but also guitar god Eric Clapton.

Pattie Boyd is the muse who inspired the music giants to write among the greatest love songs of the 20th century – Something, Layla and Wonderful Tonight.

The Vogue cover model who wed first the Beatles pin-up, breaking fans' hearts around the world, and then Clapton who immortalised his desire for her with chart-topping Layla while she was still with Harrison.

Boyd is bringing her extraordinary life story to audiences here, with a show in May at the Auckland Museum.

She will share memories, film footage and personal photographs from her incredible time with many of the brightest stars of rock'n'roll.
