Chris O'Dell - The "Forrest Gump Of Rock 'n Roll". Worked For The Beatles. First Female Tour Manager For The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Linda Ronstadt And Many More. George Harrison Wrote "Miss O'Dell" For Her!
Chris O’Dell has been called the Forrest Gump of Rock 'n Roll because she's worked with so many Superstars. She was one of the original employees of Apple Records. She was in the studio when the Beatles recorded The White Album and Abbey Road. She sang on the chorus of "Hey Jude". She later become the first female Tour Manager working with The Rolling Stones on their Exile On Main Street tour, Bob Dylan on his Rolling Thunder tour, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Linda Ronstadt and many others. And George Harrison wrote the song “Miss O’Dell” for her, which became the B-side to “Give Me Love”, his 1973 #1 record.
My featured song is my reimagined version of The Beatles’ “I Wanna Be Your Man” which I renamed “I Wanna Be Your Girl”. Spotify link.
