I finally got to watch this. It was pretty interesting, I guess I didn't really know how much Friar Park meant to George. Or how important chanting was to him.

Awesomeapple01 I'm sure you won't be disappointed, I saw it a little while ago when it was aired on TV( it gets aired here before it's released there, it's so weird) and it was a "free channel", I wonder how they could afford it

A bit late, but still pretty exciting. I actually made my mom get HBO just so I could see it, and we still have it recorded. Not that anyone cares, but yeah

Totally get what you mean, Sun King . I get a weird queasy feeling when I read about or see a Canadian too.

I watched this again last night...enjoying different parts each time...

 

George has always been quite funny...two of my favorite parts are when he is talking about writing his first song,  "Don't Bother Me ", he says ..." I thought that if John and Paul can do it (write songs)...then everybody must be able to." lol

 

And also the joke about how many Beatles it takes to change a lightbulb...four.

 

Despite all of the talk about George being labeled "quiet" and then later, "weird"...overall he seems to be the one of the four who once he got thru the trauma of Beatlemania, was able to form the most close, lasting friendships with a huge variety of people, work with almost anybody with drama, as well as the one who worked the hardest at producing good work, instead of just putting stuff out. The comparison between his first post-Beatles work, and that of John, Paul and even Ringo, is unbelievable.

 

I also really enjoyed the part where he watched "This Boy " video with friends...he was very good-natured about it and not at all disparaging. Just overall a good film to watch over and over...loved his postcards and letters to his mom, from the road, as well.

I am watching Living In The Material World , now.

Paul say that when George met John for first time , he played " Raunchy " , and then after Paul's talk , We hear that song.

Did Quarrymen(or The Beatles) ever perform and release that song ?

...They've forgotten all about God

He's the only reason we exist...

The Quarrymen more than likely did perform it but i dont remember The Beatles ever doing it before The Anthology reunion. It certainly was never recorded before then.

Funny, I was thinking about this film (which I haven't seen) just two days ago, when I was watching "GoodFellas" - I'd seen it many times before, but forgot that Scorsese used a bit of "What Is Life ?" in that long coke-paranoia/helicopter scene (along with the Stones, Who, Harry Nilsson and I forget who else.)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
