She's a full blown crank and her story is complete nonsense.

The whole Layla, Clapton, Boyd story is well known and established.

A mate of mine drummed for the re-reformed Thin Lizzy 2004 - 2006.

I experienced a moderate amount of fame in the 90s and subsequently toured with genuine full-blown stars afterwards. One thing that was alarmingly apparent is that once you become a celebrity of sorts, really unstable people come out of the woodwork with bizarre stories and questions. When I say unstable, I mean genuinely weird and psychotic individuals who make you uncomfortable in their presence; the kind you want to go away as soon as possible. This Debra interviewee sounds like typical stock from these kinds of "fans".

No, unfortunately not.

My friend Mike Lee en.wikipedia.org...(musician) drummed for Thin Lizzy for a couple of years.

He had some great & fascinating stories to tell about his years with Page & Plant, The Cult, Thin Lizzy etc.

Bloody ell Dave you do come out with some mad threads mate, I get you just posted it for the interesting factor, and your stance on this story, personally I think it’s the ravings a of a semi mad woman but hey what do I know?


I know this though, I’ve met George Harrison and Olivia a few times in Henley where they lived for many years, I was a manager of an organic delicatessen in the town at the time and they were regular customers, George was the most nicest humblest famous guy I’ve ever met
he was very down to Earth and just a nice guy really, his wife Olivia was also nice but had that sort of air about her that said ‘don’t mess with me I’m Beatles wife’, Ian Paice from Deep Purple was also a customer and he was ok too, DJ Steve Right (currently on radio 2) was the biggest tosser I’ve ever had the misfortune to meet in my life on the other hand! (Just a bit of name dropping by me for a laugh
it’s true though) I myself have been in the music industry for over ten years signed to a record label and have come across a few nutters in my time that like to latch onto anyone who’s famous, that’s what I personally think this woman is about…

This thread is a complete waste of time and bandwidth.

Threads such as this have no place on ATS.

"Untold story?"

"Real Message?"

Where? According to which reliable sources?

I've so frequently been disappointed by the gullibility of some members, the specious "research," and flimsy "credentials" of sources, that I can understand why ATS has lately lost so much credibility.

You have titled the OP as if it related fact when the source is completely incredible, there is no support for the story anywhere and it is clearly based on falsehoods.

It only took a couple of minutes to ascertain that this is crap, and unfortunately a lot like some of the more recent recent posts that belong in the HOAX forum.

What "conspiracy" makes this even slightly appropriate for this forum?

You have lost whatever credibility you may once have earned by resorting to a junk "story" from a junk source.

What a waste.
How sad.

This broad is out of her mind.
Lunatic.

"Sole" is the bottom of your shoe.
"Soul" is what you might sell to Beelzebub.

This is content from the authorized biography of Clapton "Survivor" by Ray Coleman...



That woman is not mentioned once in this book. And my impression is that nothing has been swept under the carpet, so if such connection did exist, why leave that part out ?

She may want to get revenge for Clapton breaking the promises, he never gave

Nah, has to do with George Harrison's ex.

Incidentally, Ms. Boyd divorced Mr. Harrison and married Mr. Clapton (Around 79 if I remember right)

Ms. Boyd and Mr Clapton had a fight too, and he wrote another song for her:

"Wonderful Tonight."

I would believe that site, if they had proof. But all I can find are the ladies words, and well, I say she is a liar.

Let's ask Mr Clapton. Maybe he has some of those old notes from her...



EDIT (To add)

Inspired by Clapton's then unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, the wife of his friend and fellow musician George Harrison, "Layla" was unsuccessful on its initial release.[3] The song has since experienced great critical and popular acclaim. It is often hailed as being among the greatest rock songs of all time. Two versions have achieved chart success, first in 1972 and again twenty years later as an acoustic "Unplugged" performance. In 2004, it was ranked #27 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time", and the acoustic version won the 1993 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.

Its nice to see that some people know what they are talking about and not run off repeating silly urban legends.

He wrote it before and performed it for her at a party while she was still married to George and later that same day he told George his feelings for Pattie. The title comes from an old Persian poem.

I agree, but the devil could be a physical person or a group of people pulling the strings of our reality.

Everyone knows "Layla" is only good because of the mindblowly original, electric gutiar riffs, definitely not the lyrics. Or, is that what they want me to think?
