Jenny Boyd, Patti's sister, inspiration to Donovan, married to Mick Fleetwood (twice) is publishing a memoir, Jennifer Juniper: A Journey Beyond the Muse, on 26 March by Urbane Publications.

Jenny Boyd's extraordinary life is the stuff of movies and novels, a story of incredible people and places experienced at a pivotal time in the 20th century.

As an up-and-coming young model, Jenny found herself at the heart of Carnaby Street in London, immersed in the fashion and pop culture of the Swinging 60s. With boyfriend Mick Fleetwood, sister Pattie, George Harrison and the rest of the Beatles, she lived the London scene. But as a natural Flower Child, Jenny soon became part of the counter-culture in San Francisco during the Flower Power era, witnessing the Summer of Love; she was the inspiration for Donovan's famous song, Jennifer Juniper, and her photograph was featured inside the box set of his eponymous album A Gift from a Flower to a Garden.

After working in The Beatles shop, Apple, the first of its kind, Jenny attended Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in India to study meditation with her sister and the Beatles, witnessing their creativity and the genesis of songs that would later appear on the White Album .

Despite being attuned to the spiritual bloom and innocence of the 60s, Jenny also experienced first-hand the turmoil and decadence of the 70s and 80s. Her two marriages to Mick Fleetwood, founder member of Fleetwood Mac, brought her to the forefront of the world of rock and roll - and its fame, money, drugs and heartache. Struggling in the darkness to find and develop her own voice and identity, Jenny went to college, achieving a Masters in Counseling Psychology and a PhD in Humanities - her dissertation on musicians and creativity became the critically-acclaimed book Musicians in Tune.

Jenny has spent her life in the company of some of the greatest musical and cultural influencers of the last 50 years - and the journey she takes to finding her own sense of self and creative ability makes Jennifer Juniper a truly captivating and inspiring story.

Previously published in Italy, Image Comics on 22nd April are publishing an English language version of Paolo Baron and Ernesto Carbonetti's graphic novel...

Paul-Is-Dead-1.jpgImage Enlarger

...a love letter to the Beatles that spins a 'What if?' tale about George Harrison , John Lennon , and Ringo Starr becoming detectives to uncover the truth of their friend’s death - all while they mourn his passing in the spotlight.

It's not really about the PiD myth of buried clues, as Paolo Baron explains:

They’re just a bunch of random coincidences discovered by overheated fans. My book is about a strong friendship and four young men coming together and suddenly losing one of their friends…

I was scrolling through the Beatles section on my kindle and I accidentally bought this. I had a store credit so it only cost me US$1.53 so I decided to keep it. Has anyone read it? Is it any good?

Well @Dingle Lad
That was written by our admin @Joe . So I'd be surprised if anyone around here has a bad word to say about it!

Oh it's awful.

An awfully great book I mean *ba doom tsh*.

It literally is a book on a topic that has never been written before about The Beatles and yet it's such a prominent theme in their lives and careers and the research that's done is really impressive, I learned a lot of things from that book (and that's not blowing smoke).

Would really recommend to anyone who hasn't read it yet (and it's a bargain on Kindle too @99p on Amazon.co.uk for a limited time- get it now!).

The circumstances actually happened. Honestly, I had decided to wait and get Joe's book until after I made some sense of The Beatles BBC Archives. What I was looking for was a Stones book and Riding High showed on the search. The last couple sentences were a joke really.

Only place I can think to put this.

I mentioned in another thread that The Who's Pete Townshend had revealed a verse in the Quadrophenia track 5:15...

Girls of fifteen
Sexually knowing
The ushers are sniffing
Eau-de-coloning

...referenced the reaction to The Beatles at Blackpool Opera House on 16 August 1964 when, as The High Numbers, along with The Kinks, they supported them.

A new "memoir", The Ox: The Last of the Great Rocks Stars, written by Paul Rees but based on boxes of chapters and memos left by John Entwistle makes reference to that night:

In one passage written by Entwistle he told of a night in Blackpool, England, in 1964 when the Who opened for the Beatles. While the crowd were making too much noise to hear what the Fab Four were singing, the Who had a direct feed from the stage into their dressing room. "It became apparent that the Beatles had figured that since the screaming couldn’t be stopped and no one out front in the audience could possibly hear a thing, then they might as well have some fun," he wrote. "Soon the four of us were crying with laughter at the words they were singing and which only we were able to pick up on. 'It's been a hard day's c--k… I wanna hold your c--t…’ They struck a last chord, and they were gone. And we got on with the task of packing out own gear away."

I believe the regular price in the U.S. was $4.99. Like I said earlier, with the Non Canon race going on I'm finding the BBC book to be a valuable resource. I got the playlist made and currently living it.
