Pattie Boyd to tell all in new book details here.

According to the Daily Mail, one of rock and roll’s untold stories will surface next year. I mean it is not often that a true muse shares untold stories after a 40-year old self imposed silence. It looks like the books deals more with Pattie’s marriage to Eric Clapton, but I’m sure it’s filled with previously untold details of all things Beatle.  (The John tidbits in the article sounded fascinating.  I never knew.)  The books looks to be a shocker, and it also looks that few mentioned in it will be seen in a particularly rosy light.  But it sounds better the E.C.’s upcoming autobiography.

Pattie and George

She has been silent for 40 years. Now tempted by a £1m pay cheque, the world’s most famous rock chick is set to reveal every detail of her abusive marriage to Eric Clapton.

Amid the amphitheatrical splendour of Verona’s Roman arena, Eric Clapton was not a happy man. On stage in front of 15,000 adoring fans at the lavish open-air venue this week, he was plagued by the draining summer heat and a particularly persistent mosquito.

“As he’s become older he gets miserable when it’s too hot,” says a member of the 61-year-old rock star’s entourage. “He was bothered by the flies and his glasses kept steaming up.” Clapton’s misery as he performed his classics Layla and Wonderful Tonight might also have been due, in part at least, to the woman about whom he wrote his two most famous love songs.

Holed up in her 17th-century cottage in the West Sussex countryside, Pattie Boyd, Clapton’s ex-wife and the woman he stole from Beatle George Harrison, is working feverishly on her autobiography.

The book, which will see Boyd finally break her 40-year self-imposed silence over her marriages to two of the biggest music stars of the 20th century, was described to the Mail by a publishing source this week as ‘full and frank’.

Man sentenced over stolen Beatles’ tapes

Well at least he didn’t try to sell them on ebay!  Here’s what those crafty bootlegers got  handed down to them yesterday according to the BBC.

Let it Be sessions

Colin Dillon, 39, from Crowthorne, Berkshire, pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to handling stolen goods.

Dillon was given a four-month sentence suspended for two years for trying to sell tapes made for the Let It Be album, worth around £250,000.

Dillon was arrested with Nigel Oliver, 55, who was placed under a two-year supervision order on Friday.

Oliver, from Slough, Berkshire, had been charged with two counts of handling stolen goods. He was made the subject of a supervision order under the Mental Health Act after being found unfit to plead.

Judge Jeremy McMullen, at Southwark Crown Court, had called Oliver the driving force behind the transactions and said had he stood trial and been convicted, he could have faced a four-year jail sentence.
