Why´s this on here? What´s there to discuss?

Couldn't agree more. This was also posted as "Video George Harrison garging" and I made just that point. Then they deleted the video making it look like mine was the first comment in the thread and I was reacting to nothing. I, for one, don't mind seeing clips pointed out that I may or may not have seen. This is one I have seen. But if you're going to open it as a TOPIC there has to be something about it worth discussion. Mmm. George gargling. Backstage 1974 Dark Horse tour. And... what else? If you have a Beatles-related video you think we might like, go to, say, "All Together Now", open a thread called something like - I don't think there's one yet - "Interesting Beatles (group/solo) footage", and then watch it fill with people's favourite clips. Don't just open a thread that can do nothing more than show a video because there's nothing more to be said about it.

Most of which would be off topic since this is meant to be about George Harrison gargling, not whether I do or not. (I do, twice daily!) The apple pics are interesting though, take it they're from well before they thought up a record label? See, straightaway, I'm off topic!

John gargled with milk before singing Twist And Shout. There must be more stories of the beatles gargling before shows.

Now that's something I didn't know... can milk really help someone with colds sing?

Milk soothes the throat for a time taking away the soreness and roughness resulting in being able to speak. Singing would probably lessen the time of effect which would account for John being able to battle through Take 1 but come Take 2 was completely gone - especially considering the song and the way John belted it out.

I've always found it interesting that when John got ill later in '63 the other 3 carried on with Paul and George rearranging the vocals for the eving show.

Ringo got ill and they got another drummer in (Jimmy Nicol). 

George got ill and they did the rehearsals for Ed Sullivan with Neil in his place, thankfully he was able to do the show later that night but i do wonder what would have happened if he hadnt recovered.

Paul got ill in '63 and the show that night was cancelled. Was the bass more irreplacable with the sound impossible to replicate sufficiently?
