And remember, even if you run of out of money, you're still an ex-Beatle – it's not like you can fly coach. I mean you just can't.

Absolutely. Once that level of fame is reached, it's vital to retain a certain amount of wealth just to stay safe and have some privacy.

For the record, Olivia never said that her husband cheated on her. She said that George loved women and women loved George and that he could say something to you and have a profound effect. She did say it was hard but never commented that he cheated on her. I think a lot of people are reading to much into this. I like to think that if he cheated on her, Dhani would not have come out with some comments about his dad, one saying he was a great man. Of course, this is just my opinion.

Plenty of people still have love and respect for their unfaithful parents. It's quite clear to me that Olivia was confirming the rumors of multiple infidelities on George's part, albeit in the classiest manner possible, and taking care to emphasize what mattered most to her: that they loved each other, stuck it out, and found "rewards" on the other side of their problems. If that wasn't what she meant, surely she would have made a statement to clarify the issue after many reviews of the documentary concluded the same thing.

Scorcese obviously wanted to acknowledge that "carnal" side of George, though why he included that awkward "red-blooded man" bit from Paul is beyond me, lol.

Just to add to that........while commenting on Isn't It A Pity on another thread it occurred to me.......this is a man who had the insight to write profound lyrics such as that and yet when it came to his John and Paul relationships, failed so often to put them into practice!

The following people thank LadyBay for this post:

A Daily Mail article on George and affairs includes the following about a possible affair with Madonn, is more rumour and hearsay than any fact (tho considering the source is that a surprise)

Rather extraordinarily, more than one source  suspects that he had a heavy flirtation with Madonna on the set of the 1986 film Shanghai Surprise, despite the presence of her first husband Sean  Penn.

Certainly, Madonna was at the time deeply  unhappy with Penn, and said she found Harrison, who was executive producer of  the film, ‘very understanding and sympathetic’.

He came to see them filming in Macau, and  also met her several times in London before and after the production. It was obvious that they got on well, even though the movie turned out to be such a disaster that it was dubbed ‘Flop  Suey’.

Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, noted that, although Harrison felt moved to ‘read the riot act’ to Penn over his  hostile and aggressive attitude during filming and gave the actor a stern  ticking-off, he treated Madonna with ‘kid gloves’. During a press conference a few weeks after  filming finished, he surprised everyone present by going on the attack over  allegations that Madonna had been impossible to work with, passionately  denouncing the assembled journalists as ‘animals’. It all seemed rather unlike the ‘quiet  Beatle’.

I looked up what it exactly meant, and when used as imitation it says: ''the term denotes a literary technique employing a generally light-hearted tongue-in-cheek imitation of another's style; although jocular, it is usually respectful.''

I'm not sure if you could use the word ''pastiche'' in the context you did, but then again, I'm not a native English speaker so I don't know a lot of things. But maybe you meant to say ''parody''?

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

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