If the one on the far right is supposed to be Pattie, I don't think it is a very good likeness. It is, however, much better than anything I could draw.

I agree, although the others look on point... Maybe Cyn's nose is a little oddly shaped though, but I can tell its her.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

''Cynthia'' looks a bit odd to me as well. Make her hair black and her eyeshadow a bit darker and you've got Alice Cooper.

I've always liked Linda. She's was attractive you me. She looked music and was a photographer, which is at least creative.

Not sure if this belongs here, but if Pattie had a death conspiracy it'd also be PID...
And fake Pattie would be Fattie.

Nancy would be Fancy!

She wasn't ''yer regular supermodel'', but she was sort of attractive in her own way. I admire her for what she stood for. 

Stella actually still takes inspirations from old pictures of her and her clothing style for her designs. I think that's cool.

A new interview with May Pang.

http://hottytoddy.com/2014/11/.....tles-info/

I don't know a lot about her other than the basics. Also, I'm not steeped enough in Beatles history to know how much new stuff is here. Hopefully someone will point out highlights, if there are any.

Nothing new and, in my opinion, not a great interview.

May is as forthcoming as she always is in interviews. She is, as I'm sure @Joe would confirm, a great interview. If you've got the right questions, the lady has fantastic answers and insight. The interviewer in this instance is very poor in my opinion, with far too much needless flattery.

My doubts were stirred by the opening paragraph and where it says "She has been described by rock pundits as one of the most exciting and interesting females of the 20th century". Really? By who? 

And it didn't get much better after that which such questions dressed up in such grovelling as 

In the 1970?s you were viewed as one of the “sexiest women” in the world. All too often, beautiful ladies become stereotyped for their looks versus their intelligence. A penny for your thoughts?

and 

How do you want the world to perceive you now? You remain to a great extent as being one of the most mysterious and exciting women of all time. What can you share with us in informing everyone what makes May Pang tick?

Nowdays it's common place for interviewers to butter up celebrities but this went well beyond that.

I'd concur with that. May's a friend-of-a-friend who put us in touch. I interviewed her via email, and I've never spoken to her directly or on the phone. She was very generous with her answers - quite often email responses to questions can be fairly brief and insubstantial, particularly if your interviewee has gone over the same ground many times (as May surely has).

I didn't think the HottyToddy one was a terrible interview, but some of the questions were a bit weak ("What are your favourite Beatles songs?"), and that last one ("You remain to a great extent as being one of the most mysterious and exciting women of all time") was just bizarre. Bear in mind the interviewer probably isn't a Beatles nut like we are, and may well have interviewed half a dozen people that week on a range of subjects. It's different if it's a subject you love and know a lot about, as you can really delve into the details.

Wogblog has posted an interesting interview with Maureen by French magazine 'Le Chroniqueur' from July 1988 (both an English translation and the original French text).

A couple of quotes.

Q: What was it like to sit in the studio with John, Paul and George?

A: It was like watching a couple of actors rehearsing a scene in a movie (laughs). I would sit there with a cup of coffee in my hand and watch them for a while or maybe gossip with Linda [McCartney] or Mal [Evans]. When I did watch them, I always thought to meself, so this is what he’s been doing for the last six years! (laughs) I sometimes felt like a fly on the wall, but I knew that I had to be the luckiest fly in the world. Pattie [Harrison] would sometimes be there, but she would always leave early.

 

Q: Yoko Ono was there too.

A: I always thought her strange. I mean she would always interrupt the lads when they were working or do strange things without any reason whatsoever. I was there when John brought the bed, and said something about wanting Yoko to be there. I asked Richy about this and he just shook his head in disbelief. I often wondered how they all put up with her. Even Richy would come home and tell me all these strange stories about her. He once told me about her moaning into John’s microphone while they were recording a song and how the two of them would make-out during takes. I always avoided her in the studio for those reasons. She was just too strange for me.

 Maureen also talks about Ringo's departure from the group in the middle of the White Album sessions and after being asked why Ringo left she says

 

A: From what I heard him tell Peter [Sellers] on the yacht, Paul wanted a certain drum pattern on a song and Richy was just fed up with his coaching him too much. He usually did something totally opposite of what Paul specifically told him to do, and Paul would get upset.

Full interview is at Wogblog and its very much well worth reading.

I love Maureen. She seemed like such a down-to-earth and cool person. I wish could've met her.

I remember this was mentioned when "Who was the hottest Beatle" thread was first made and then we were are called shallow fan girls so it died...

All of them were beautiful (I think) but there's something about Maureen, I don't know what it is but she just has an interesting looking face (gah I can't explain it paul-mccartney)

A special nod to Cynthia, Olivia and Jane

^^^ I love her hair

 

They all look good. The sixties were a great time for  women as they looked cool, flirty and natural. woman are all so "done" these days. Bring back the sixties!!!

1. Linda McCartney 100%

2. Olivia Harrison 100%

3. Yoko Ono 100%

4. Astrid Kirchherr 80%

5. Barbara Bach 60%

6. Cynthia Lennon 60%

7. Jane Asher 40%

8. Maureen Starkey 40% 

9. Heather Mills 0%

10. Pattie Boyd 0%

I can see why I got Linda, Astrid, and Yoko because I love art and photography. Olivia because she seems like a kind spirit. I rather be a Yoko then a Heather.
