Pattie’s Boys

I just finished reading the biography of Pattie Boyd. She was married to George Harrison and a little later after she divorced George she married Eric Clapton. So she married a Beatle and then another icon of rock and roll. Her insights are basically that they both (George and Eric) were addicts and narcissists and had little time for the missus. Ok so I was sympathetic with her reaction to George bringing Hare Krishna families into the house and chanting all the time BUT Eric was a different guy with all of the same issues i.e. addiction, alcohol, sex, drugs and rock n roll. What is to be learned from her experiences other than history repeats itself? What did the 1960’s free us from in the long run?
