Jenny Boyd has led an incredible life. In the 60’s she found herself immersed in the world of Rock n Roll. Jenny was a model, a Muse, a sister to Pattie Boyd, sister is law to George Harrison and later Eric Clapton and wife to Mick Fleetwood and Ian Wallace.
In her 30s she embarked on a new adventure, earning a PhD in Humanities. From there she authored a book, It’s Not Only Rock’n’Roll, in which 75 of the world’s most iconic musicians reveal their thoughts on creating music. She has probed the minds of legends such as Eric Clapton, Don Henley, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Ravi Shankar and many more; delving 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.
Jenny has also worked in the addiction field, founding Spring Workshops which brought therapists from the US to the UK to facilitate workshops.
It was an absolute pleasure to talk to Jenny about her life and career and our mutual fascination with the creative process.
