Patti Boyd @ Morrison Hotel Gallery

 Patti Boyd, held court at Morrison Hotel Gallery, February 6, 2014. 
For the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles landing in NYC on February 7, 1964
Julian Lennon collaborated in curating this Beatles photograph exhibition.
Open to the public today February 7th - 28th  2014.

Morrison Hotel Gallery, 116 Prince street, 2nd floor, NYC.

 Patti Boyd was quite charming and extremely gracious.
The former model, actress, wife of George Harrison 
and Eric Clapton was funny and unassuming. 

 I spoke briefly with her about meeting Henry Grossman, 
the renowned photographer earlier in the week. 
He had had regaled us with his photo stories of the Beatles.
In particular his fond memory of George and Patti, from his visit to London.
She remembered Henry quite well and it brought a sparkle to her eyes.
  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a selfie with Layla.

Julian Lennon was unable to attend the festive event
due to bad weather conditions.

The Beatles 1964 performances from the Ed Sullivan Show played
on the big screen, to cheers, dancing and some sing alongs.

"I Saw Her Standing There"

Thank you Peter Blachley and Kiva, I had a great time.

Bobbie Citron was so exited, she won tickets to Beatle fest 2014.
