      The author of this meant to say “epitomized”or the British spelling would be “epitomised.”

        Yes, "opitimised" is not even a word, lol.

        I think it's possible for two people to still care about each other, even though their marriage has failed.  I think it's very magnanimous of George to continue being friends with Patti, even though he also found a soulmate in Olivia.    Ringo did the same thing with Maureen, they always remained friends, and was even at her bedside when she passed away.

        I think both of them (George and Ringo) had very good hearts, and always tried to look at things from a higher perspective, which is how things should be.

        The breakups of their marriages could have been a result of dealing with the fame and breakup of the Beatles, and not being able to cope with that, but don't want to judge of course, because the only two people who know what went wrong in a marriage are the two people involved.... One thing I really admire about Linda is her strength, and the strength she was able to give Paul during his depression after the breakup of the Beatles... it no doubt made a huge difference to him, just her attitude of choosing to be strong, and loving him anyway unconditionally.   I'm glad she was there for him!  

         

          LadyLeslie, you always have such a balanced and kind perspective about everything. What they went through with the fame and everybody wanting a piece of them, as stated in  AHDN, had to be tough on a marriage. Indeed.

            Thanks so much Fan4-45years! That's very kind of you!

             In spite of whatever issues The Beatles had to face,  I believe they really have taught the world a lot about love and  kindness and showing  respect for others, and so many things.... not just through their music but through the story of their own incredible journey as a group, and as individuals.    There must have been so many things they had to deal with that we just can't imagine or be able to understand, that only they and the people closest to them knew, but I'm glad that "in the end," they chose to show kindness.  George & Pattie and Ringo and Maureen are good examples of that.

            Paul wrote "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."  Not meaning to take away from those beautiful words, but I've often thought another way of phrasing that is "The love you give is equal to the love you live."  Maybe that is saying the same thing, lol.   Anyway, I think The Beatles always believed in that, even when they had difficult things they were going through.

            <--have to end with a silly face now because I've been gotten so deep in these posts, lol

              Even worse - they wrote ”opitmised!”

                Yeah, too bad they didn't proofread and do a spell check before uploading the article.

                  Today watched a great movie/documentary about Eric Clapton on Showtime called “Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars.” Talked all about the love triangle with audio interviews of Pattie and Eric. 

                  I didn’t realize how many bands he’d been in! The Yardbirds, Cream, Derek and the Dominos, etc. 

                  Plus, it’s a miracle he’s still alive with all the drugs and alcohol he consumed! It took the death of his 4 year old son, Conor, for him to turn his life around. 

                    Wish I had Showtime to see that. It'll probably be on utube eventually. 

                    Yes, Eric was even with Bonnie & Delany for awhile & of course sang with John's Plastic Ono Band.

                    I read somewhere that both Pattie & Eric had written books & had to check with eachother about certain events because neither could remember much from their time together because of drugs & alcohol.

                      Hi Nancy R! I SAW IT TOO! I LOVED IT! Patti, Eric and George, this love triangle has to be the greatest in the history of the world! 

                      DEREK AND THE DOMINOES, one of the GREATEST bands with many of the GREATEST musicians EVER assembled! LAYLA, one of the GREATEST songs EVER recorded! Having Eric Clapton and the late great Duane Allman TOGETHER IN ONE BAND, M-A-G-I-C!

                            Derek and Eric? Eric was Derek! Lol! 

                              Listen to the lyrics to the song "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" carefully, you can hear Eric confessing his love for Patti!

                                Eric didn’t write the song and it was released in 1975 when he and Pattie were living together. (They later married in 1979) 

                                Doubt the lyrics are about Pattie:

                                The sky is crying, look at the tears rolling down the streets.The sky is crying, look at the tears rolling down the streets.I looked out my window, the rain was falling down in sheets.

                                My baby left me this morning, lord knows I don't know the reason why.My baby left me this morning, I don?t know the reason why.And every time I think about it, I hang my head and cry.

                                The sun is shining, although it’s raining in my heart.The sun is shining, although it?s raining in my heart.I love my baby, I hate to see us part.

                                  Hi Nancy R! How are you? You are right in every aspect of this conversation Nancy, what I meant was that when Eric (Derek) sang this song, he sang it with Patti on his mind! How can the song be released in 1975 when the Layla album was released in 1970? I'm a little confused Nancy, please explain. Take care.

                                    Sorry, misinformation. He recorded it several times.

                                      That’s what happens when you take something on the internet at face value! Sorry!

                                      BUT, he originally recorded it in 1965. Did he know Pattie then?  No. They met in the late ‘60s.
