Pattie nearly fainted - and with good reason! Oh, that George!
The street was dark and deserted. A few lamps flickered on and off in the quiet street, casting shadows on the bushes and across the sidewalks. Two people walked down the street, hand in hand. They walked slowly, close together. And every once in a while, they stopped walking and talked together for a second or two.
Those two people were George Harrison and his girlfriend at the time, Pattie Boyd. They were coming home from an evening out at one of the clubs in the area. They’d sat quietly in a corner and talked most of the evening and now George was taking Pattie home.
George told us, “I’d been dating Pattie ever since she first came on the set of ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. You might say we hit it off right away. I mean, we liked each other and liked being with each other. But for me, Pattie was just a girl who was fun to be with. I didn’t picture myself thinking really seriously about her in the beginning.”
That was in the beginning. But that night, the night George walked Pattie home from the club, his thoughts changed.
