New here. Anyway, dumb question that I feel really really really bad for not knowing but how do you pronounce Dhani? The question has been killing me...

According to the lady in this story https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....-4/#p89663 , George pronounced it as Danny.

Oh, and, @Mr. Kite, you will like the visual in the post right above that one.pattie-boyd_02_gif

Did George actually eat a lot? Is their proof that he did or was this just made up by fans?'

Well, @Starr Shine?, when somebody tried to auction an unfinished piece of his toast, he did admit that his toast never went unfinished. Make of that what you will! Sounds like a glutton to me!

First time I hear this @Starr Shine?. But unlike John, he always was extremely skinny. Another rumor I guess…

According to Pattie he didn't eat much at all. I'm sure George loved food as much as the next person, but mainly I think it's one of those things fans have exaggerated as a joke.

George was cremated soon after his death (as is tradition in Hinduism) at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. A couple of days after Olivia and Dhani flew to India and scattered his ashes in the Ganges and Yamuna rivers at a private ceremony.

 

I never knew what they did with the ashes. A lovley touch. It has got me thinking where I want to be scattered....I would rather not be thinking of this! NEXT THREAD!

it's about the inussued songs George wrote and recorded as demos. i mean, surely, Valentine, he described as a "rock'n'roll on the powe of love" and probably many others (30 were in the vaults at the time Brainwashed was made). will ever come a day when they'll be published?

I do believe that we will see a George box of previously unreleased outtakes as George himself talked about some sort of release in the later stages of his life. The plan for Olivia and Dhani was always to get George's catalogue back into circulation after years of much of it being unavailable, that's been done so after a break i'd imagine their attention will turn to it. I doubt it will be any time soon but it will still beat Paul's.

There is the wonderful 'Concert For George' which is something he said he would love - getting all his friends together and making really great music. That's a kind of memorial.

I think both John and George would have been uncomfortable with the idea of memorials to them. I can imagine (sorry!) John poking fun at them and George saying that physical tributes are less important than the legacy of his music and his love.

That concert was one of the most beautiful and fitting celebrations of somebodies life you could ever get to see. They really did George proud that night.

When did George lose the unibrow? Did someone bring it to his attention and recommend to him that he lose it?

John also had a bit of a unibrow (and funny teeth) I think he fixed both “problems”, but I don’t know when. Ah, the sixties, when heroes didn’t have to be “perfect”!

George was too ill to play the solo on 'Horse To The Water'; i think it was Dhani.

You are correct. Dhani played the solo:

"Horse To The Water" is a song written by George Harrison and his son Dhani. It was originally performed byJools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, featuring Harrison, on the album "Small World, Big Band" (also known as Jools Holland's Big Band Rhythm & Blues). Recorded on 2 October 2001, the song is Harrison's last performance on a record. George recorded his vocals and guitar tracks in Switzerland while Holland would later overdub the "big band" and chorus in his studio in England. Harrison only performed vocals on the track, as he was too weak from battling cancer to play guitar, and he died less than two months later on 29 November. Lead guitar on this song is played by Dhani. George listed the song's publisher as "R.I.P Music Ltd" instead of his usual music company Harrisongs, which Holland said showed "Harrison's dark sense of humour."

The lyrics partially reflect George's own stubbornness in not quitting smoking despite the medical evidence that it causes the disease, and relates this to other people who ignore warnings, enlightenment and plain common sense.

Holland played the song in tribute to Harrison at 2002's Concert for George, with Sam Brown on lead vocals.

yes, i also thought that George was too weak to handle the guitar, but listening it again after some months...i believed that maybe a one last heoric strenght of will...because the first part, as i said, seemes actually George's styled. but surely you are right, it's Dhani's. the last years of George as musicians, the work on Brainwashed are so little known. it's a pity. maybe it's a matter of discretion, it would be understandable. well, what matters now is that the unfinished songs will soon be released. in any form they would be, we'll be happy to hear them. Olivia suggested even that one of this songs could be completed by Paul. it would be beautiful

That concert was one of the most beautiful and fitting celebrations of somebodies life you could ever get to see. They really did George proud that night.

In the Grammy's 50 anniversary of the Ed Sullivan show, Paul remarked that he balked at first about appearing, saying it was a bit cheeky to headline a tribute party to him (them) selves.  But someone got it across to Paul that the earth literally stopped for an hour (in the states) and he said he'd play.

And ditto about the concert for George, I think it's pretty exactly what he would have wanted.  I'll add that I think George must have done an amazing job not only readying himself to leave this earth but also preparing Olivia and Dhani.  I'm sure they had some rough times, but some of the interviews since George passed show that Dhani has a good feeling about it all (as good as you can get when your father dies) and show he's been coping well.  I'm thinking specifically of the one where Dhani is asked "What would you say to your father?" and he replied "Where've ya been? Fancy a cup of tea?" (I hope I don't have George and Dhani mixed in this reference!).
