Now It Can Be Told — Patti Boyd Wasn’t A True Blonde!
Check out this picture of [lastfm]George Harrison[/lastfm] and Patti Boyd on their honeymoon. They became man and wife on January 21, 1966.
They honeymooned in Barbados.
“She was a Vogue model, a fresh-faced blond (???) from Somerset, England, with little-girl bangs that hovered over blue button eyes.
On the set of ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ she met George Harrison, who proposed to her just 10 days later.
She was ‘Layla’ – inspiration, muse and eventual wife of guitar god [lastfm]Eric Clapton[/lastfm]…”
Those were the words from an article in the San Diego Union Tribune from two years ago, as they were doing an interview with Patti about her new book, but, as we see in this pic, Patti was not a natural blond.
Our eyes could be deceiving us; perhaps it was the lighting or maybe the quality of the film or maybe Patti had been rolling around on the ground with her new husband and got lots of soil in her hair, but, she doesn’t look blond to us!!
So, that’s your big [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm] exclusive of the week!!
