Chris O'Dell has packed a lot in a small amount of time and is probably surprised that she made as far as she has, considering the life she have lived. Hanging around with the Beatles, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones and managing tours for George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Santana, Earth, Wind & Fire and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. In the early 1980s she worked with Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, The Grateful Dead, and The Band. During all those years, drugs were everywhere. She smoked marijuana, popped black bombers, dropped LSD, and drank endless Scotch and cokes (the Beatles' favourite drink). Getting deep into cocaine while touring with the Stones by the end of the tour in New York she was shooting up the drug. Now sixty years old and with a full life she reflects back on her past.
