A DRINK WITH...

Sitting down with the most interesting and influential industry leaders... one drink at a time.

If you could have a drink with anyone, who would it be? A Drink With is a one-of-a-kind web series that sits down with celebrities, artists, athletes and entrepreneurs over a drink and shares their inspiring success stories. We capture true personalities. Whether it's a coffee or beer, our relaxed atmosphere allows our interview subjects to get comfortable and open up in thoughtful and unexpected ways.

YOUR ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHS ARE ON DISPLAY IN AN EXHIBIT CALLED "VISIONS OF A MAGIC TIME" AT THE HILTON | ASMUS. IS THERE ANYTHING ABOUT A PARTICULAR PHOTO YOU TOOK THAT MAKES YOU SMILE BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON BEHIND THE CAMERA?

CARINTHIA WEST: Quite a few. The one of Mick [Jagger] and Linda Ronstadt is a favorite of my own pictures just because I know he was thinking naughty thoughts, and she was thinking romantic thoughts. Say no more.

PATTIE BOYD: There is a photograph I took in India when we were meditating with Maharishi [Mahesh Yogi]. The Beatles were writing music for "The White Album". They were all pretty friendly and it was a creative time, but I've got one shot of Paul [McCartney] and John [Lennon] sitting together. John is just looking at Paul, and Paul is making some sort of face, and I just wish I knew what had been said! There is something going on!

HENRY DILTZ: A lot of the photos I took were taken on adventures. For album covers with a group we would try to get out of town away from girlfriends, managers and telephones. We had no cell phones in those days, so we'd go spend the night in the desert, go somewhere far away from town and spend a day or two and have a real adventure. You could get some great pictures that way rather than just standing in a studio with lights.

FROM DINNER PARTIES WITH ROYALTY TO BEING FRIENDS WITH MUSIC LEGENDS, WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE DRINK YOU'VE HAD?

PATTIE: The first time that I came to America with [former husband] George Harrison. We stayed at the Plaza Hotel and we were 21-22ish, and I had my first margarita. I couldn't believe it! It was the most delicious, most fantastic drink and to have it there in this glamorous setting with George... it was beautiful. It was fabulous.
