My hellish love triangle with George and Eric

Patti Boyd has a new autobiography coming out. Excerpts here. How anyone could leave Beatle George for Elic Crapton, is beyond me.

Patti inspired 2 ofthe greatest love songs of all time, Something and Layla (Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs being the only Crapton album I can stand). Here's a video for Something, featuring the Fab Four with their special ladies. The Cooler had a great comment about this, something to the effect of John, Paul and George expressing their through their beautiful songs, while Ringo expressed his love through minibikes.

Frank Sinatra called this "The greatest love song ever written", but always atributed it to Lennon/McCartney. Knowing George's sense of humor, he probably got a kick out of that.
