She’s the legendary pop muse who married two British music icons and inspired at least 11 hit songs. 

Now Pattie Boyd, former wife of George Harrison, lead guitarist of The Beatles, and Eric Clapton of Cream has decided to bring some of the magic of the swinging 60s to the NFT market. 

She will release six personal photographs from her time at the epicentre of pop culture as NFTs in collaboration with Rarible and RR Auction in April.

'I'm happy to start this adventure into the NFTs and I'm excited about different new versions of some photographs from my archive,” Pattie said. 

The many songs inspired by the boomer beauty include Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and The Beatles’ Something, as well as Layla - a classic song of unrequited love that has become something of an anthem for men of a certain age. 

Pattie’s photography was made famous by a collection called Through The Eye Of A Muse, featuring intimate pictures of Harrison and Clapton. Photos from her archive will make up a range of NFTs called RECOLLECTION.

The original digital edition photographs will go on sale in April via the RR Auction auction house alongside a digital sale of NFTs on Rarible that “will empower owners to attach royalty rates to any resale” which is “a growing movement in the blockchain and photography space”. 

Investors will also be given the opportunity to own authentic audio messages alongside the photographs.

Organizers of the NFT sale said this “unique collection of meaningful photography will form a complete narrative” and will be “a previously unexplored chapter that will excite, inspire and entertain both new and existing fans of music history”.
