What about the period when you were in love with his wife Patti Boyd, who eventually left him and married you? Does that put a strain on your relationship with George?
Unbelievable. And it’s still here. It has something to do with the way we wind each other up. I mean, that always a little barbed comment somewhere in any conversation. I mean, that devastated all three of us. It was fun at the time. It really was like on of those marriages where you see wife swapping – Bob & Carol & Tom & Alice. And everyone saying: “Oh, it doesn’t matter, we can write our own story on this.” Because those were the times.
But it took years, and it’ll never go away, the way it affected our lives. We’re still very much the same in the way we think about and feel about each other. Pattie’s still there in the picture for all of us.
