Okay (and I say this as a straight male), George should not be allowed to be that good looking. That's just too good looking.
Thanks for this Mith!

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

The first thing I did when I saw this topic was start singing "Won't you please oh won't you, Give me love, Give me love, Give me peace on earth, Give me light, Give me life, Keep me free from birth, Give me hope, Help me cope, with this heavy load, Trying to touch and reach you with, heart and soul."...  But then I clicked on it and was like oh...  I need to read that now

{Quick Note} Believe it or not, that is probably my favorite George song ever.  It sends such a good, strong message.  In case all you BB people have not heard this song, check out  Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth) by George

I don't get that at all.

I think it might be for George's "would-be" 70th birthday.

Probably for 10 years of the death (Mith, he would turn 70 in 2013. They wouldn't wait.)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 WT? Oh yes you're right. George is 9 months younger than Paul and he's 69.

I need this book and movie in my life now. I don't feel like waiting 4 more months. 

This is what Olivia is saying about the book's content:

"Drawing on George Harrison’s personal archive of photographs, letters, diaries, and memorabilia, Olivia Harrison reveals the arc of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool, to the astonishment of the Beatles years, to his days as an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison’s lifelong commitment to Indian music, and his adventures as a movie producer, Traveling Wilbury, and Formula One racing fan. The book is filled with stories and reminiscences from Harrison’s friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and many, many others. Among its previously unpublished riches are photographs taken by Harrison himself beginning in the mid-1960s. It is a rich tribute to a man who died far too young, but who touched the lives of millions."

So I'm excited. The article is here: http://www.examiner.com/beatle.....k-revealed

And this man should stay away from water and land because he looks good all the time. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Mhhh ok nasty thought. Is Olivia pulling a Yoko? In the Lennon Imagine Box there's no word about Cynthia. So is this book going to include Pattie? I think so....

It can't not include Pattie. Anyways, the split between Patti and George was much more clean then John/Cynthia. I think Patti and George (and perhaps by extension, Olivia) were on friendly terms for most of their lives, but I'm not sure. Hopefully this answers that question.

No I think it will include Patti. Patti's vital to the Beatle part of George. And I would think Olivia would be on good terms with her. It's not there should be any bad blood between them. 

Olivia only mentioned a few names in that blurb. I find it more interesting that Ravi Shankar is not one of the obvious names mentioned and Terry Gilliam is.

I saw this on Tumblr. I'm literally crying right now for two reasons:

  1. I will be in college so I can't watch it.
  2. My family will no longer have HBO starting in August so they can't DVR it for me.

I'm glad we are getting more information about it though. I'm excited for it, but I will be praying that Netflix will stream it soon after it airs.
