11/10/11 Chris Oâ€™Dell is a licensed addiction therapist, living in Tucson, AZ. Like many of us, she had another career in a former life. In this case, it was the kind of life that many would be envious of. She actually lived with the Beatles. Seriously! She started working for Beatles publicist Derek Taylor, moved to England, and eventually became the first female tour manager. She was in the right place at the right time. Leon Russell wrote "Pieces Apple Lady" and "Hummingbird" about her, James Taylor spent a night in her London flat writing â€œCarolina on My Mind,â€Â and George Harrison wrote â€œMiss Oâ€™Dell,â€Â the flip side of his monster hit â€œGive Me Love, Give me Peace on Earth.â€Â That song, â€œMiss Oâ€™Dellâ€Â is the name of a new book ( Miss Oâ€™Dell â€“ My Hard days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and the Women They Loved.â€Â) , which she wrote with Kathy Ketcham, arguably the best writer it the field of addictions. Chris talks candidly about the back-story of the music and the lives of the top rock 'n rollers of our time. She also talks about the drinking, drugs, and the road to recovery along they, including her own. In our second hour, a moving and inspiration look into the one-day-at-a-time journey of Lisa N. Welcome to another edition of RECOVERY - Coast to Coast!
