An entertaining & fascinating gem!
This book reminds me of a British saying; You've got a lucky face! As the author self admits during one point, how could she not. Being in the right place at the right time happens so much during her life for personal as well as business events. All rock music lovers should find this woman's experiences incredible. And this only goes for the one's she was able to share with the public! Am positive there are hundreds more she chose to secrecy in order to protect the innocent. This book read like a good movie- with laughter, tears, joy & heartbreak, I couldn't wait to get to the next page~
In-depth & all around interesting story
But...fair warning to Clapton fans: Miss O'Dell clearly despised EC & still does, I don't think there's 1 kind word about him here. If you're a Beatles/George Harrison/Rolling Stones fan this is an excellent read, interesting & believable story.
A very interesting story, and so so entertaining!
