Jenny Boyd is giving a talk about her new book in two weeks. Below is some more information about Jenny and the book.
"How do the world's most popular musicians create hit songs; is it natural talent, or do external influences affect their writing process? Dr Jenny Boyd, 60s model and ex-wife of drummer Mick Fleetwood, spent four years interviewing 75 world famous musicians and has now published her findings in a fascinating book, It's Not Only Rock and Roll. She talks to music expert Andy Miller about this original and inspiring collection, where iconic musicians reveal, many for the first time, their thoughts on creating music. Psychologist Jenny has probed the minds and souls of these artists and has delved into the drive to create, the importance of nurturing creativity, the role of unconscious influences and the effects of chemicals and drugs on the creative process. Music legends who contributed exclusive interviews include Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Julian Lennon, Don Henley, Hank Marvin, Keith Richards, Ringo Starr, Steve Winwood, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell.
Jenny Boyd has many personal ties to the music world as former wife of Mick Fleetwood and the inspiration behind folk-rock singer Donovan's 60's hit Jennifer Juniper. She was in Rishikesh, India in 1968 with The Beatles and her sister Pattie, (former wife of George Harrison and Eric Clapton). Jenny is the founder and director of Spring Workshops, organising psychotherapeutic groups for people in need of personal development."
