chrisodellbookChris O’Dell, the former Apple secretary and one of rock’s first female tour managers, has just released her new memoir, Miss O’Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with the Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and the Women They Loved 

Yes, that’s “Miss O’Dell”, the woman who George Harrison wrote a song about in 1973. O’Dell was in the studio when the Beatles recorded The White Album, Abbey Road, and Let It Be, and when Paul recorded “Hey Jude,” she sang in the chorus.

She was at Ringo’s kitchen table when George Harrison said, “You know, Ringo, I’m in love with your wife.” And Ringo replied, “Better you than someone we don’t know.” She typed the lyrics to George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass. She lived with George and Pattie Boyd at Friar Park, developed a crush on Eric Clapton, and unwittingly got involved in the famous love story between Eric and Pattie.

She worked with the Rolling Stones as their personal assistant on their infamous 1972 tour and did a drug run for Keith Richards. She’s the “mystery woman” pictured on the back of the Rolling Stones album Exile on Main Street.

O’Dell will appear on the Friday, October 9 edition of Good Morning America to discuss her book. She will attend a book signing on October 9 at Border’s Books in New York and at Book Soup in West Hollywood on October 16.

Daytrippin’ will post an exclusive interview with “Miss O’Dell” on October 9.
