Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

During the Get Back sessions (on 3 Jan) the Beatles are talking about oldie but goldie songs they could revive for the Get Back project. George says "I'll tell you which is a good one" and starts in playing and singing Every Little Thing. Thank you, George. Then Paul joins in. heart As of now, that is my favorite Beatles song.

Some one is hocking off some of George's private home video that was taken by a friend/employee in his home in Maui. A petition was started to return the footage back to the Harrison family  whether it will do anything is unlikely but every little bit helps

@AppleScruffJunior - here is the latest on the petition (not sure if it's the same pointer you used) from Alyssa and Andrea.  I can't figure out how to cross post, but look here for the aforementioned thread.  I'll post updates re: the petition there as I get them.

timbarwick asks: Will you be releasing Living in the Material World in a remastered/extra tracks version?

george_harrison_live: Well, as I said before

george_harrison_live: That will be the next one to be remastered

george_harrison_live: I have to get into my tape library to find out if there are any alternate versions of anything.

silbeat asks: Hi George! Glad to hear from you again! Are you planning to do any live performances? If so, where would you like to play? (Please include Argentina!!!). With love from Argentina. Sole, Mara, Silvi, Vale, Gilda, Ale, Sami and Graciela.

george_harrison_live: Hello Argentina! 

george_harrison_live: At the moment I have no plans for live performances

george_harrison_live: If I do later, I will certainly come to Argentina

george_harrison_live: all the Grammys

george_harrison_live: I met him once and he is a super chap.

oldmanalex asks: Hello from Russia, George! Russian fans invite you to play in Moscow! Can you tell, will the Traveling Wilburys reform? Are there any plans to record something with Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne?

george_harrison_live: I’ll be there after Argentina!

george_harrison_live: and I like Sam Brown singing it.

ChatYahoo_Lisa: Why did you re-visit it?

george_harrison_live: At the time, the song was so popular and also so controversial that the most important thing about it for me was that it

george_harrison_live: in it’s small way

george_harrison_live: conjured up a touch of spirituality

george_harrison_live: something we are very short of…

ChristopherClause asks: Hi George! Christopher here! Thank you for being such an inspiration! What was it like working with Phil Spector? Although I can hear his influence, your “influence” and leadership in the production is clear. God bless you, George!

george_harrison_live: Phil Spector was prob the greatest producer from the 60s and it was good to work with him because I needed some assistance in the control box.

george_harrison_live: Phil is very funny

george_harrison_live: loveable

george_harrison_live: we love him 

mebissy asks: I have several teenage friends who’ve just discovered All Things Must Pass. They were wondering about radio airplay. I explained that this was a re-mastered, etc. album – a re-release essentially. They, however (as do I) feel the music is just as cool as it was when you first released the work. Wouldn’t it be great if a single was selected and the whole cycle could start again?

george_harrison_live: It’s nice to know that teenagers find All Things Must Pass *cool*

george_harrison_live: As far as a single goes,

george_harrison_live: I suppose that’s really up to Capitol Records

george_harrison_live: I have no objection!

melissay1 asks: Hi, Mr. Harrison, how do you feel about the Beatles 1 album being top of the charts?

george_harrison_live: It’s very nice

george_harrison_live: It’s also nice that young children seem to be hearing it for the first time

george_harrison_live: and I think as an alternative form of music for today

george_harrison_live: it has its place alongside all this other stuff.

captainwombat_2000 asks: Out of curiosity, why the garden gnomes on All Things Must Pass?

george_harrison_live: Originally, when we took the photo

george_harrison_live: I had these old Bavarian gnomes

george_harrison_live: which I thought I would put there

george_harrison_live: like kinda… John, Paul, George and Ringo

george_harrison_live: gnomes are very popular in Europe

george_harrison_live: and these gnomes were made in about 1860

george_harrison_live: so, while building the website

george_harrison_live: the gnomes just seemed to get into it and we just couldn’t stop them!

gearfabasitwere asks: Is Indian music still a big infuence on your music?

george_harrison_live: Yes!

ChatYahoo_Lisa: anything particular?

george_harrison_live: Check out U. Srinivas a South Indian electric mandolin player

george_harrison_live: eat your heart out Van Halen!

moosefalva101 asks: Following the incident at your house on Dec. 1999 has your outlook on life changed at all?

george_harrison_live: Yes and no.

george_harrison_live: Adi Shankara an Indian historical, spiritual, groovy-type person once said

george_harrison_live: “Life is fragile, like a raindrop on a lotus leaf.”

george_harrison_live: and you better believe it!

Nicole_Paul asks: I am curious about your website and the way the cover photo is altered by adding roads and urban development to the picture. Does that symbolize anything?

george_harrison_live: Yes.

george_harrison_live: It symbolizes that our world is being concreted over. Haven’t you noticed?

bluejeanbaby42001 asks: George, you have quite a reputation as a gardener…What are some of your “pride & joy” plants? Love, Dianne

george_harrison_live: Well, for the cooler climates (as in England)

george_harrison_live: The current trend is definitely toward Miscanthus

george_harrison_live: You’ll find many lovely varieties

george_harrison_live: try the Zebrensis and also the Malepartis

george_harrison_live: However,

george_harrison_live: if you’re gardening in the tropics

george_harrison_live: I think you’ll find a lovely little ginger called Kahili 

a_t_m98 asks: Mr. Harrison.. what is the opening chord you used for “A Hard Days Night”?

george_harrison_live: It is F with a G on top (on the 12-string)

george_harrison_live: But you’ll have to ask Paul about the bass note to get the proper story.

hari_girl asks: What do you think of Eminem’s grammy nomination?

george_harrison_live: What’s Eminem?

george_harrison_live: Aren’t they choclates or something?

beatles_lvr asks: You started the “band aid” movement; who would you help today? Love you George!!

george_harrison_live: Bob Geldof!

Moyette asks: What did you record with Bill Wyman last month?

george_harrison_live:  An old Ketty Lester song called “Love Letters”

sharonconcannon2000 asks: Why was “I Live For You” left out of the original mix? (I think it’s lovely, thank you for putting out at last!)

george_harrison_live: I didn’t think that we had got a good enough take on it.

george_harrison_live: Except for Pete Drake, the pedal steel guitar player.

george_harrison_live: At that time, I had so many other tracks as well,

george_harrison_live: so we just left it off.

george_harrison_live: It did need patching up

george_harrison_live: in the drum department.

pcpalmiere asks: How close are you to releasing that boxed set of unreleased songs and demos you talked about in Billboard some time back?

george_harrison_live: Well, hopefully during this year I should at least get out a new album and all the other boxes of unreleased demos could possibly follow in 18 months. I’m trying to get everything that has ever been done out there. It’ll just take a little time.

nikolaidisgm asks: George, what do you miss most about John Lennon?

george_harrison_live: John Lennon.

michaelcalcina asks: George: In the Anthology book, you talk about the unwound G string. What is that? I play guitar and I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

george_harrison_live: It’s one of those little things that goes up your butt so that people can’t see your pantylines.

george_harrison_live: No, It’s actually a 3rd string that doesn’t have a winding around it.

spongeweed70508 asks: Does Paul still piss you off (tell us the truth)

george_harrison_live: Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass — You know his faults — Then let his foibles pass.

george_harrison_live: Old Victorian Proverb.

george_harrison_live: I’m sure there’s enough about me that pisses him off, but I think we have now grown old enough to realize

george_harrison_live: that we’re both pretty damn cute!

incantataa asks: Mr. Harrison, I was wondering if you might tell us a bit about your ideas on love. Romantic love, that is. I recall you having written some of the Beatles’ most beatiful love songs. It would be interesting to hear how your religious attitudes have impacted your beliefs concerning romanticism.

george_harrison_live: Well, the lover that we miss is actually God.

george_harrison_live: The beauty that you see within each other is actually God.

george_harrison_live: So, Krishna was the greatest romanticist. He had girlfriends on every corner!

george_harrison_live: I can’t seperate the two — a beautiful girl is the divine mother, a beautiful man is the manifestation of potential.

fabzzy asks: You’re joking in a most Pythonistic manner tonight George.., it’s great to hear you online!!!

george_harrison_live: PISS OFF!!

george_harrison_live: You nosy bastard!

i_arcos asks: Is it true that you recorded “Homeward Bound” with P. Simon?

george_harrison_live: I recorded that with Paul Simon on Saturday Night Live back in 1853.

tnntxx asks: George, given the drug experimentation of the 60’s, how do you feel about the legalitzation of pot?

george_harrison_live: Well, I saw someone on TV last night pulling out huge loads of pot out of various fields in California. My feeling is…

george_harrison_live: as long as you can go into a store and buy

george_harrison_live: whiskey

george_harrison_live: bourbon

george_harrison_live: and all the rest of it

george_harrison_live: then, a little grass is nothing.

george_harrison_live: the authorities are just causing the price to be high — ‘scuse the pun.

ckeavenyuk asks: Have you any tips to budding songwiters? Do you, as John apparantly advised you stick at it until you have finished it.

george_harrison_live: Try and write some melodies. And some words that mean something.

george_harrison_live: It is true that if you are on a roll, then it’s best to finish it in one go.

george_harrison_live: That’s what Johnny said.

kdtash asks: Any chance that the Dark Horse material, esp. Shankar Family and Friends will be released on CD?

george_harrison_live: Well, along with my own catalog of records

george_harrison_live: the other Dark Horse records

george_harrison_live: hopefully will be finding a new home

george_harrison_live: and coming out on CDs (remastered) sometime in the future.

mp0071999 asks: Hey George will you be ever be back on Yahoo?

george_harrison_live: Possibly. It’s pretty painless for me.

kyntire2001 asks: Happy Birthday (a little early). During your recent Internet video promoting All Things Must Pass, you pointed to an engraving on the back of your guitar. What did the engraving say?

george_harrison_live: It’s a Maclaren strat and it had a metal chassis number plate on the back.

george_harrison_live: Thank you all!

george_harrison_live: May God bless you all.

george_harrison_live: Don’t forget to say all your prayers tonight.

george_harrison_live: Be good little souls.

george_harrison_live: Lots of Love!

george_harrison_live: George.

george_harrison_live:          

ChatYahoo_Lisa: Thank you sooo much for joining us….pretty please come back soon!

george_harrison_live: for further entertainment!

Oh, the irony.

A tree planted to honor of the memory of the Beatles songwriter George Harrison has been killed by actual beetles. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the living local monument fell victim to an infestation of insects that couldn't be bested. According to Councilman Tom LaBonge, the 10-foot-tall pine planted in 2004 bit the dust only recently, and a new one will be planted in its stead shortly. 

Harrison's last years were spent living in L.A. — he died there at 58 in late 2001, and was cremated at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The so-called George Harrison Tree was accompanied by a plaque reading: "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener." It includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: "For the forest to be green, each tree must be green" 

The plaque (and the forthcoming tree) is located near the city's famous Griffith Observatory. The memorial has one very glowing review on Yelp (with photos), which now reads more as a eulogy to the tree that was:

On the day I was there, many tourists and visitors, in fact, walked right by it without noticing it at all. There is no signage that leads people to the tree, and the memorial plaque is near the ground and out-of-sight. Furthermore, I didn't see any buskers or fans with guitars either playing "Here Comes The Sun," "Something," or "My Sweet Lord" (or any of Harrison's many other well known songs). Instead, with my own private thoughts and reflections, I enjoyed that pine tree in peace just as George, I'm sure, would have wanted it.

From ASJ's post, my favorite part is (paraphrasing because I kind of forget it) "I think (Bob Dylan) should win! All the Oscars! All the Emmys! All the Tonys!"

As Ron Nasty posted at the news thread, NPR Music has an interview with Tom Petty, during which he shares some memories of his friendship with George starting at the 10-minute mark.

I liked that he mentioned that George liked The Beatles and liked talking about them, because so many people carry a perception of him as bitterly hating the band.

^ I liked that too. He said something similar in another interview where he said even though George bitched about them sometimes, he clearly loved John, Paul and Ringo, and was extremely proud of The Beatles. 

I find it quite frustrating that so many people see him that way (including hating fans, hating Paul, etc.) when there's plenty of evidence pointing to the contrary..if they would bother to look.

Everyone bitches about their families and friends at one time or another and no one thinks anything about it. But, when a celebrity does it, it makes headlines on gossip rags and TV shows. 

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
