From Publishers Weekly
Ever wonder what was really going on in the studio when the Beatles recorded the White Album? Chris O'Dell offers these entertaining vignettes of her backstage experiences with the boys in the bands—Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and Eric Clapton—for whom she was variously muse, lover, typist, confidante, and, on one occasion, drug runner. O'Dell pops up with Zelig-like ubiquity in pop music's most iconic moments, and the book is a gossip gold mine—but it's also a deeply felt account of living a full life, with all its concomitant regrets. Renee Raudman delivers a stunning wallop of a recording that captures the essence of the stories with easy glamour and raw emotion. A Touchstone hardcover. (Nov.)

"A riveting, honest, and brave account of life with the most famous names in rock and roll history...hard work, tough love, huge loss, pain and gain. I couldn't put the book down. I just loved it." -- Pattie Boyd, author of Wonderful Tonight
"Chris O'Dell knew all the greatest names in sixties and seventies pop, from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan. Nicknamed 'the Pisces Apple Lady,' she was the ultimate insider, a uniquely trusted employee and friend in a world where betrayal and backstabbing are the norm. Now at last she tells her story, in devastating detail yet without envy or malice...a rockin' good read." -- Philip Norman, author of Shout! The Beatles in Their Generation and John Lennon: The Life
"I enjoyed reading it very much. It is an astonishing look into the backstage of rock and roll." -- Leon Russell
