From Apple Corps. secretary, to personal assistant to musical icons, to rock n’ roll tour manager, Chris O’Dell has seen it all and lived to tell about it.

Now, a best-selling author, public figure and devoted mother to her son, William, Chris spends her time making public appearances, doing interviews and promoting her best-selling book while sharing incredible stories of her years with rock n’ roll’s most influential and iconic musicians.

She is currently working on a documentary film with Liverpool West Productions called Miss O’Dell, showcasing her life and career with many legendary artists. It’s expected to be out in 2024.

She currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.

In case you missed the live show, here is the YouTube link:

In February 1968, my friend Allan excitedly called to tell me he was rubbing elbows with Derek Taylor, famed Beatles (yes, THE Beatles) press officer. Allan insisted I come down to meet them at the La Brea Inn in Los Angeles. I did, and the night ended up being one I would never forget. Derek and I became fast friends and Allan and I spent the entire night talking with him, listening to his incredible stories about his life with The Beatles, laughing, playing records and getting stoned. It was magical.

While Derek was in town for a few weeks, he introduced me to many people in the record and entertainment industries and it sparked something in me. I knew I wanted to be part of something like that – something bigger. Derek was going to head back to London to head up the press department of Apple Corps. Ltd. – The Beatles’ new multimedia company in London. He told me Apple was going to be huge and that’s when he offered me my first big gig: to go to London and work with him at Apple Corps.

Opportunities like this don’t come often – if at all – so after talking with my parents and friends, I sold my record collection and life insurance policy, and on May 17, 1968, I flew to London. I had no idea that I would be taking on a job that would change my life forever.
