Miss O’Dell by Chris O’Dell, with Katherine Ketcheam

(Simon and Schuster) Miss O'Dell was a right-hand person for some of the biggest names of the 70's rock era - Fleetwood Mac, the Stones, Dylan, the Beatles. Just from riding in the shotgun seat with these legends, she has stories galore. Because she was the one who had to take care of business when the time came for that (as assistant and tour manager), her viewpoint is a lot more grounded than the typical hanger-on of the time. But after all she'd been through, she still manages not to be jaded and bitter, which is something you seldom see from a person who was behind the scenes as long as she was.
