Ray Coleman wrote a nonpareil biography of John Lennon.

I love Chris O'Dell's book and got it as a gift!

Other members have gotten to know Ms. Schwarts on the rmb music fora and she is notorious for acting a fool and a troll. It has been documented that she acted a fool when Paul jilted her and not-too-gently escorted her luggage out the window. If you read her book, be prepared for a lot of axe-grinding, bitchery and nasty tabloidesque comments that can neither be proved nor disproved. She does not reflect well on herself and in an interview I saw on VH-1 in 2001, she appeared to have tabled her life after 1968. Sad, really. I think Francie Schwartz is a very tragic figure.

Wow... I had no idea. Wonder if there were any other "Francie's" in Paul's life?

Maybe Heather might come close. ????

I doubt it. Let's hope not!

The woman sounded like a flipping crackpot!

I know this is a horrible answer, but if we told you, it would ruin the excitement of the book. Let's just say she was a very lucky fan! She lived an incredible adventure!

I passed up on this book a couple of times upon seeing it at the book store but finally picked it up for $3 on the Borders discount shelf then proceeded to avoid reading it in favor of a number of other books over the last few months. Now that I am reading it I wish I had read it a year ago when I first saw it. I really enjoy the manner in which it is written, you can really put yourself in her shoes and feel the excitement as you read along.

I love the story about James Taylor, what a surreal experience in retrospect. I think I'd have to feel the same way she did in that situation.

As crazy as my Beatle experiences were as a fan... I don't think I could have done half the stuff Chris did!

Amazing ride.

But I sure do wish I coulda sung on the Hey Jude single. :)

I couldn't agree more. I felt like I lived her life while I was reading along...

So am I. Thought FAcebook. I contacted her about her living in Friar park and thanking her for telling about it. She said she'd even show my story Sunday in the Park with George to Pattie because Pattie found Friar Park.
She's a nice lady.

It looks like this book is available on Kindle too. I downloaded the sample yesterday, but I haven't gotten to it yet--I have over 170 samples in my "To Read" collection!

You guys are talking about the "Miss O'Dell" book right? I must be the oddball because I thought this book was shameless. Most of the time she is leeching off of everyone she can think of, sleeps with everyone in sight, gives props to herself every chance possible, and can somehow remember entire conversations verbatim 40+ years later in many cases. Save for very few things, it's just gossipy tabloid stuff and self-centered "look what a drugged out whore I was" anecdotes. Plus there were typos galore which drives me nuts. Sorry.

She wasn't a whore. Whores do it for money. she had sex because she liked it. She was just honest about the good, bad and ugly parts of a rock and roll lifestyle she was living. She also had no shame about her sex life. That's something I admire.
I loved the stories about Friar Park and hanging out with John and Maureen in the suite at George's concert. Those are the situations of my fantasies there.

sad how the drugs kept her from visiting George for nearly three days but then it helped him write the song Miss O'Dell.

Since when is a typo in a book to blame on the writer? Apart from that, there are lots of books remembering the 60's and 70's when all was different than now. To call Chris a whore is in my view out of order.
