50 years ago, on 18 December 1966, Tara Browne, the Guinness heir, smashed his yellow Lotus Elan into a van on Redcliffe Gardens, South Kensington. He was 21. Browne’s death inspired one of The Beatles’ most popular songs, A Day in the Life. It was Browne who, in John Lennon’s visceral prose, “blew his mind out in a car”. Browne is a well-known figure, and not just because of being the subject of a Beatles song. A lengthy biography for a life cut so short has just been released, which examines Browne and his gilded world. But little is known about the passenger in Browne’s yellow Lotus, Suki Potier.
