As to last public performance, depends on what you call public...

^ I knew somebody was going to call me up on that, I would have taken the Natural Law Party Concert as correct as well as the VH1 performance and the Bob Dylan tribute concert to a lesser extent

I just asked if it counted. If it counts, coming from 1997, it is easily the last public performance. Natural Law and Bobfest don't enter the debate.

^ Right so

Bollocks I realized, I made a mistake in the quiz it should be:

 

10.What was the name of the lady who sang lead on 'Govinda' off the London Radha Krishna album?

Not

What was the name of the lady who sang lead on the 'Hare Krishna Mantra'?

15 is an easy one. Standing around in Bob's garage in Malibu, George requests some words from Bob, Bob asks what the song's called, George looks around, spots a packing case, and says, "Handle with care"... I'm so tired of being lonely... etc!

1. I just know there's discrepancy about when George was born - Feb. 24  or Feb. 25, and I read it has something to do with hospital clocks being set back around wartime (haven't found out why).

16. Was that 1966?

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

School? That was Dovedale Primary, same as John. Though they didn't meet at that time with George being a few behind John.

1. You're right about the dates, George celebrated his birthday on the 25th but his birth cert says he was born on the 24th. But at what times...hmm a-hard-days-night-george-10

16. Nope, a lot later then '66. Dhani was 18 when George went to Vrindavan...

Excuse me, I'm owed an apple! Last performance, detailed description of "Handle with Care", and school. Three attempted, three right.

And here's #4, he met Olivia at the offices of WEA - where she worked, and who were distributing Dark Horse (the label, not the album).
