Wake up. Where two are divorcing, two have been wrong. George cheated on Patti, he was no saint.

When two are divorcing two are not always wrong. But I agree with you Bobber, in this case, George was not a saint, he did cheat on Pattie, and she cheated on him.

In one way or another, there are. But maybe we're getting off topic.  :)

Neither were saints (George nor Patti).  They married so young.  As time goes on people change (maybe one grows up and the other doesn't) and people just are not compatibile anymore.  They both seem to have not taken their marriage that seriously.  And I am sure it is so much harder to have a marriage in the spotlight in front of the world.

I think it is hard to have the marriage going when you are in showbusiness or rock stars or actors or other celebrities. Paul was perfect in this respect. And he married young, not much later than George. ( or before him? )

I think Paul was the last to get married.

I didn't know Pete never got married! Then again I don't know squat about Pete other than the obvious association with The Beatles.  Sorry I know that is getting off topic....  

I still have to read the book.  I have just haven't read it yet.  I am about half-way through the Clapton book now.  And have gotten to  the point were Pattie and George are separted and she is with Eric.  And I must say that Eric does not really talk bad about Pattie.

Certainly, Eric doesn`t talk badly about Pattie! It`s only when one party is dead that they start talking not so well, to put it mildly. And George is not with us, so...

In Eric's defense, he doesn't talk bad about George either.  He spoke kindly of them both actually.

After I read Pattie's book I will report back with my thoughts on her version...

Pete Best was actually engaged to Maureen.... until she met Ringo.

And Pattie does not speak badly of George in her book.  It's obvious that she still feels very loving towards him, and she expressed some regret over the end of their marriage.  But it would be absurd for her to not mention things like George's adultery, or the Hare Krishna thing, things which contributed to their divorce.  What kind of book would it be if she glossed over all that stuff?

And why is this thread in the George forum anyway?  The thread about Cynthia's autobiography is in the book forum, where this one should be.

Overall, I didn't like the book. I didn't even ask for it,I got itas a gift and decided to read it,  I thought, what the heck, right?

While reading it, mostly during the trouble time in the 70's, it almost seemed to me that it sounded like George was the only one doing something wrong. And whether George actually cheated or not, because who really knows now, no one can ask him, she never reallly said things she did wrong. And most likely or not when your in a stressful relationship like that one, with all those other men around, ya sure you stayed faithful. According to her book, it was all George's fault.
 
I don't see the point in writing a "tell all" auto-biography, then leave most of the topics nearly undisccused and vague. With a one side narrow view on all the topics that occur in the book.

So does Pattie put the blame on George or not? Why do the others write that Pattie speaks nicely about him?

Whoever is to blame for their marriage not working, there's absolutely no question that George had numorous affairs -- on tour, swapping wives with Ron Wood -- Neil Aspinall was quoted as saying that George proposed a wife-swap with him, but Neil declined the offer.  This idea that "no one knows if George actually cheated" is hogwash.  Pattie knows, as do many others.  The cheating doesn't shrink George's reputation in my eyes.  It doesn't make him a bad person or make his songs sound any different.

Mr.Mustard, thank you for your well-balanced, objective judgement. I believe you are right. And, you know, i like the expression: shrink one`s reputation- very much...!

Pete Best was engaged with Maureen? Is that a joke?

George's cheating doesn't shrink my opinion of him either. I think if he's cheating on his model wife, there had to be something wrong in their relationship.

A man will cheat on a woman regardless of whether she is a model or not.  Looks really have nothing to do with it.  I remember in the early '90s when Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley were divorcing after nearly a decade of marriage.  A friend of mine (male) expressed disbelief that Billy Joel could possibly let super-model Christie get away.  I said, "He's seen her every day for the last 10 years -- he's bored."  (That's not to infer that Billy was cheating on her; I don't recall the reason for their split.)

There's a saying that goes, "A man is only as faithful as his options."

I know what you mean. If you love someone you won't cheat, simple as that. I don't believe in second chances on some things.
