George had a very severe throat infection/illness, not that i can remember the exact name of it, during the '74 North America(?) tour. Nowadays gigs would have been cancelled and George would have recovered during the break, but he kept going till the endwith his voice getting worse and worse.

For a variety of reasons, one  being the altering of the words of In My Life to show more of George's spiritual side, George and the tour were very heavily slated leading to a deep bitterness and no more gigs until Japan 1991.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 A search on youtube found me this. It seems to be some sort of tribute concert, there are a lot of people on the stage by the end. Hope it helps.

That's the one. Thanks Kelicopter!

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

In terms of thread topic, this is really interesting to wonder about. Could you picture John singing Helter Skelter?

Every member of the Beatles has done "Get Back".  I'll skip Paul's because we all know it.

George: 

Is it weird that I like this as much as the recorded version?

EDIT: Also...

EDIT 2: John's version of Get Back reuploaded.

There is a French bootleg (i think its French) that gathered together about 70 minutes of individual Beatles singing other Beatles songs and later solo tracks so for example John singing Uncle Albert, Paul doing Strawberry Fields. The Inner Light was on it and i'm sure it was John in 1971 on that hotel tape. But its not in Joe's entry for it so maybe it was the Get Back sessions. Damn, i wish i could remember the name of the bootleg.

 

Found it

John's rendition of The Inner Light must have been from the Get Back sessions, DDSI 28.16

I enjoyed that version of John singing Get Back, it's a bit wacky.

How does that bootleg thing work? Looks as if you can't download anything, or was that exactly what mmm was saying? In that case I'd appreciate a link too if anyone finds it!

This is pretty cool. John singing 'Devil In Her Heart' on the 7th January 1969 during the 'Get Back' rehearsals at Twickenham (4:50 onwards).
