March 27, 1979…Eric Clapton married Pattie Boyd in Tucson, Arizona.
Pattie had been a model and was married to George Harrison from 1966 – 1974.
Apparently, there were no hard feelings, because George attended the wedding along with Ringo and Paul.
The marriage lasted nine years.
In 1972, Derek and the Dominos had a top-10 hit with Layla. Eric had written the song for Pattie Boyd.
