By Nancy Lee Andrews. It has been said that rock ‘n’ roll was a boys-only club in
the 1960s and 1970s. Among the few women who gained entry was a
high-spirited, half-Sicilian and half-Cherokee beauty named Nancy Lee Andrews.
As a top Ford model, Andrews was the perfect complement to
one of the world’s biggest rock stars, former Beatle Ringo Starr. Her romantic
relationship with the famous drummer granted her an All Access Pass to a world
beyond the velvet rope.
These photographs, taken over a decade starting in 1970, are
a personal journey through Andrews’ life at the peak of pop culture history.
It’s also an intimate view of the stars with whom she shared those amazing
years. Seen through the lens of Nancy Lee Andrews, this fascinating visual
portrayal captures some of the greatest rock and other icons of our lifetime.
