33 years…..

By Patrick Van Roy On January 15th, 2021

This poor woman has put up with me all this time. Through the struggles of building a family, the ups and downs and even the long periods of boredom and those are the times it’s actually harder on relationships. My wife has been there and I pray that she will always be, but right now she just looks wonderful

  1. Congratulations to both of you. Hope you and Monica’s next 33 years together are even better !

  2. Thirty three years? You get less than that for murder. I kid I kid ..

    Congratulations to you both.

    Clapton wrote that for Pattie Boyd. He also wrote Layla, Bell Bottom Blues and a few others for her. George Harrison wrote Something, For You Blue and I Need You for her. Ronnie Woord composed a few songs for her too.

    She must have been a hell of a chick.

  3. She must have been a hell of a chick.

    She’s still alive isn’t she ? No longer a chick but must be one helluva woman to inspire so many adoring songs !

  4. She’s still with us. I have her autobiography on Kindle. I haven’t got round to it yet but apparently it’s a belter.

  5. I wonder if it contains the modest line “I went out with this bloke once. He wrote a song about me… 🙂

    Hmmm, seems for some reason all the musicians who made it with her were not only guitarists, but all were Stratocaster virtuosos.

    Clapton’s favourite guitar solo was reportedly this brilliant playing by Duane Allman on Wilson Pickett’s “Hey Jude” (from about 3:00 onward).

    Well she certainly must have had a talent for playing their instruments 🙂

  8. But why not Billy Preston? He always delighted the ladies with his organ performances.

  9. Monica and I thank you all…..

    Interesting story, I did not know all those were about the same woman.

  10. Yes I think George Harrison was very bitter when she left him for Eric Clapton, or was it the other way round ?
