Today is the anniversary of George's death. Guitars all over the world are gently weeping.

Sadly, all things must pass, but he knew it wasn't the end of the line. I'll raise a glass in your memory today, Georgie!

Thinking of you today, George and how you left us far too young (in my opinion).  Gone but never forgotten

Will be listening to All Things Must Pass today. And I'm going to try to make the ceremony at his star if I can get off from work early enough. RIP, George.

I also just found out about the George Harrison Tree in LA. I'll have to visit sometime.

Here's to my hero. Got my Harrison playlist on will sing loud and proud for the man who's last words to the world was "Love one another". Love you forever and always George thanks for giving me someone to look up to and aspire to have the motivation & perseverance that you had you wonderful being.

But if you want money for people with minds that hate... All I can tell you is brother you have to wait. Alright.

He was always my favorite Beatle. I like McCartney for his taste and perfectionism, John for his open-mindness and revolutionary ideas, and Ringo for his humour and great drumming – but George is the one who I just understand the most, his songs were always deep and he was a great musician. There was something in the way he was…

Thank you, George, for being a Beatle and for giving us so much to still appreciate and talk about.

BTW, did you see that hideous wax head someone made that was supposed to look like you? You have my permission to haunt them if you like.

It is such a shame he had to go.

My boss let me off from work early, so I went to the memorial that Chris Carter from Breakfast with the Beatles hosted at George's star. It was an open mike affair, with fans paying tribute and singing, and Chris providing pizza for the fans. It was all the more emotional because many of the attendees knew Susan Hancock, one of George's biggest fans who cleaned and polished George's star, who died of Lou Gehrig's Disease a week ago. It was said she died wearing a George t-shirt. She's seen in the photo below, holding the original mock-up of the star, which Dhani signed for her (and that was an amusing story in itself, as Dhani didn't seem to be aware of the Walk of Fame and didn't understand how his father was going to be immortalized in the sidewalk).

After the open mike tributes, we held hands around George's star while listening to "All Things Must Pass," and that's when I got a bit weepy. And then we sang to "Here Comes The Sun" while a woman played tambourine.

It was an incredibly poignant tribute. This morning, I'm listening to Saturday Morning with the Beatles, naturally dedicated to George, as well as to Susan.

 

At last night

It was, Trud. I wasn't sure if it would be too intense and I'd have to walk away. But it was a very gentle, loving memorial.
