    Very interesting. I am not up on Beatles personal stories and didn't realize that there was a wife before Yoko.

    The Beatles had legions of beautiful women screaming for their bodies...I never understood how one of them ended up with a woman so ugly as Yoko Ono...

    The Beatle that did the best marriage-wise (at least for good looks) was Harrison who married model Patti Boyd

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If I'm not mistaken she eventually married Eric Clapton and was the inspiration for his song "Wonderful Tonight"

    IIRC she was the inspiration for at least two more songs: "Something" by Harrison and "Layla" by Clapton. Someone can correct (too lazy to look up).

    I know you're right about 'Layla", even though she was still married to George at the time. 'Something' seems right as well.

    She must have been something to have 3 hits songs written about her.

    Warren Beatty might argue that it is not good to have a song written about ya.

    I thought that song was about Mick Jagger?
    When I see the 2015 Reds, I see a 100 loss team.

    No. Interesting writeup on the possibilities at Wikipedia entry.

    I thought it was about Mark Felt.

    edit: after posting this I read the linked wiki article. I had no idea that Carly Simon had made the same joke. Sorry.

    Dave Coulier had a whole cd written about him.
