Heather Theresa Taylor was born in June 1947 in London to Hanna and Chuck Taylor and spent her early childhood in Hammersmith (nearby the Daltrey’s), until she moved to Connecticut with her family.
As a teenager, she met Davy Jones of the Monkees when her brother was in the musical Oliver! on Broadway and Davy was the Artful Dodger. They had a romance and Heather eventually ran his fan club. During the Sixties she worked as dancer and fashion model at the Murray the K show during Jackie the K wild fashion show. She and Linda Eastman hanged around the Stones in those days. In 1964 she dated Gordon Waller. She also went out with Jimi Hendrix (who dedicated to her his song Foxy Lady) and Jeff Beck. In 1967 she went to London to date Jimmy Page, but after three dates he dumped her, saying that they were seeing too much of each other.
During Murray the K fifth dimension show in March 1967 she met Roger Daltrey of the Who. She was modeling on the same show and Roger was instantly attracted by her ultra-feminine beauty and her being level-headed. A few weeks later they met each other again at the Speakeasy Club in London. Catherine James, who used to go dancing to Ondine in New York with Heather, bet they could stay together and gave Heather Roger’s phone numer. So they kept in touch and some months later Heather moved to Roger’s house in Saint John’s Wood.
In 1969 Roger took her with him to Woodstock. From 1968 to 1970 they lived in Hurst, but when they decided to have children they moved to Holmshurst Manor, a farm in Burwash, East Sussex. They eventually got married on 19th July 1971 and together had three children: Rosie Lea (born on 3rd October 1972), Willow Amber (born on 20th March 1975) and Jamie (born on 2nd February 1981), who appeared in the video of Roger’s song After the Fire and sang backing vocals on Everything a Heart Could Ever Want (Willow), the song that Roger dedicated to Willow.
