"models don't look like rabbits"

When I find myself in times of (inspirational) trouble, I always tend to turn to my favorite muse, the beautiful Miss Boyd. I haven't posted any pictures of Pattie in a while, so I figured now was as good a time as any to share some of my favorite looks of hers. This collage is rather India-heavy because I also found out today that I will be spending this summer in India. I am so excited, but I hope it won't interfere too much with blogging.

Anyway, I am also looking to find a new book to read. I'm finishing up "A Day in the Life" and am searching around Amazon for an interesting read. Any suggestions?

Wow you are going to have the best time in India this summer!

Have you read Miss O'dell by Chris O'dell or Chronicles Volume 1 by Bob Dylan? I've read both of those recently and they are worth you're time.

India...I am so jealous, and very happy for you!

I love Pattie and I adore her sister Jenny. I feature bits about Jenny quite often over at Touch Of Tuesday. What muses those girls are! Take, for instance, what Lindsey Buckingham recently revealed about his anthem "Go Your Own Way." He said that it was even more about the breakup of Jenny Boyd and Mick Fleetwood than it was about him and Stevie splitting.

You've probably read 'Faithfull' by Marianne, but it's my favorite. I would die and go to heaven if Anita wrote a book.

"I'm With the Band..."

"Storms: My Life with Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac" Carol Ann Harris

Tangerine - Miss O'Dell is a fab book! I absolutely loved it. I read about half of Chronicles a few months back, but I got distracted so maybe I'll finally finish it now!

Laura - I didn't know the story behind "Go Your Own Way." That's so interesting! I don't know what it was/is about those Boyd girls, but they seem to inspire some of the greatest songs

Dakota - "Faithfull" is one of my favorite books! Have you read Marianne's second book, "Memories, Dreams, and Reflections"? It's really good - tons of random anecdotes about sing-alongs with Kate Moss, Cher, and Donatella Versace, as well as recounting hazy afternoons at Kinfauns with Pattie, George and Mick.

I couldn't even begin to explain how excited I would be if Anita wrote a book. Keith's autobiography is apparently due out sometime this or next year, and it'll be very interesting to hear his view of Anita, Marianne, and the whole lot

Amyruru - "I'm With the Band" is an absolute classic. I haven't read Carol Ann Harris's book, but I think that Fleetwood Mac, with all of their falling in and out of love with each other, was/is such an interesting band and SO incredible.

I know there's a Marianne Faithful autobyography have you red it?

"Rebel Heart" by Bebe Buell is quite good, too...not exactly the same era of rockers, but it is an interesting and very often heartbreaking read, especially when she gives her painful account of her tortured love affair with Elvis Costello. As you guys probably already know, Bebe had love affairs with Elvis C., Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Stiv Bators, Rod Stewart, Todd Rundgren, Mick Jagger, and Steven Tyler...just to name a few! She was and is still very close with May Pang.

I just finished Andy Warhol's "The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, From A to B and Back Again" which was awesome! There is one chapter about Edie, but it's not all nice. He calles her Taxi.
I also read The Age of Innocence and saw the movie (with all lines taken directly out of the book), and I can't not recommend it to someone!
Part from that it looks like you've read most of my favourite books, where I'm With the Band takes the lead so far.
Would be great if you could write a list of your favorite books and biographies!
Love your blog
