Olivia the Badass

By -

As I’m sure is the case with most people here, I’m a lifelong Beatles fan, and I always had a particular fondness for George. You probably recall he was stabbed in his home in 1999. I never read the details of this crime, figuring that some maniac just sneaked in and started stabbing him in bed. This isn’t how it happened at all, though. In particular, George’s wife Olivia saved his life by beating the hell out of the attacker with a fire iron. Rock on, Olivia! Sadly, George still passed away a couple of years later at the young age of 58.
