^^ Thank you so much, ASJ!

A friend texted me that Gary Wright will be the guest DJ on LA’s 100.3 The Sound tomorrow at 6pm PST, and he’ll discuss his work with George. You can listen live here.

^ You’re welcome parlance, I’d do some more but I’m in my family’s apartment at the moment and my book is at home so I might post some other extracts before I go back to school- it counts as German study *a-hard-days-night-ringo-2

 

*Actually anyone who is studying/planning to study German, Klaus uses excellent colloquial words that you won’t learn in a classroom and synonyms for other common words e.g. der Kumpel- a mate or fellow.

ooooh so interesting a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Smokey Robinson and Nile Rodgers introduced George into as a lifetime honoree. 

I was hoping for more, but I was glad to see someone who influenced and was influenced by him introduce the award.

* The tree at Griffith Park (the one that was destroyed by actual beetles) will be replanted on his birthday.

The usual celebration at his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will also take place at 6pm.

* From the Liverpool Echo:

A new Liverpool tour is to celebrate the life of George Harrison , with backing from Sir Stirling Moss.

Beatle guide Jackie Spencer is running the tour this weekend to mark what would have been his birthday next week.

jackie says: “It’s a four hour coach tour followed by an afternoon event at The Jacaranda. One highlight will be a visit to Aintree Racecourse, where 60 years ago a young George saw Stirling Moss win the British Grand Prix. This started a lifelong love of motor racing. Stirling Moss has actually got behind the event and is sending some items as souvenirs for the group of around 50.

“The day begins at 9.30am from Hari’s Bar, Hard Days Night Hotel, we’ll be at the Racecourse 11.30, and The Jacaranda 2pm till 6pm.”

Hi all Georgettes, etc.,a-hard-days-night-george-10+heart=beatlemaniacs_02_gif

So so sorry for my ignorance; I thought I knew all about the Beatles but you never can, that’s the thing about them is that when you think you’ve discovered everything about them they surprise you yet again… ahdn_paul_01

What is the “fiendish thingy/thingie” reference? <apologetic grin>ahdn_george_06

Don’t apologize! It’s a George quote from Help ! during the curling scene: “It’s a thingy! A fiendish thingy!”

george_harrison_live: something we are very short of…

ChristopherClause asks: Hi George! Christopher here! Thank you for being such an inspiration! What was it like working with Phil Spector? Although I can hear his influence, your “influence” and leadership in the production is clear. God bless you, George!

george_harrison_live: Phil is very funny

george_harrison_live: loveable

george_harrison_live: we love him 

mebissy asks: I have several teenage friends who’ve just discovered All Things Must Pass . They were wondering about radio airplay. I explained that this was a re-mastered, etc. album – a re-release essentially. They, however (as do I) feel the music is just as cool as it was when you first released the work. Wouldn’t it be great if a single was selected and the whole cycle could start again?

george_harrison_live: It’s nice to know that teenagers find All Things Must Pass *cool*

george_harrison_live: As far as a single goes,

george_harrison_live: I suppose that’s really up to Capitol Records

george_harrison_live: I have no objection!

melissay1 asks: Hi, Mr. Harrison, how do you feel about the Beatles 1 album being top of the charts?

george_harrison_live: It’s very nice

george_harrison_live: It’s also nice that young children seem to be hearing it for the first time

george_harrison_live: and I think as an alternative form of music for today

george_harrison_live: it has its place alongside all this other stuff.

captainwombat_2000 asks: Out of curiosity, why the garden gnomes on All Things Must Pass ?

george_harrison_live: Originally, when we took the photo

george_harrison_live: I had these old Bavarian gnomes

george_harrison_live: which I thought I would put there

george_harrison_live: like kinda… John, Paul, George and Ringo

george_harrison_live: gnomes are very popular in Europe

george_harrison_live: and these gnomes were made in about 1860

george_harrison_live: so, while building the website

george_harrison_live: the gnomes just seemed to get into it and we just couldn’t stop them!

gearfabasitwere asks: Is Indian music still a big infuence on your music?

george_harrison_live: Yes!

ChatYahoo_Lisa: anything particular?

george_harrison_live: Check out U. Srinivas a South Indian electric mandolin player

george_harrison_live: eat your heart out Van Halen!

moosefalva101 asks: Following the incident at your house on Dec. 1999 has your outlook on life changed at all?

george_harrison_live: Yes and no.

george_harrison_live: Adi Shankara an Indian historical, spiritual, groovy-type person once said

george_harrison_live: “Life is fragile, like a raindrop on a lotus leaf.”

george_harrison_live: and you better believe it!

Nicole_Paul asks: I am curious about your website and the way the cover photo is altered by adding roads and urban development to the picture. Does that symbolize anything?

george_harrison_live: Yes.

george_harrison_live: It symbolizes that our world is being concreted over. Haven’t you noticed?

bluejeanbaby42001 asks: George, you have quite a reputation as a gardener…What are some of your “pride & joy” plants? Love, Dianne

george_harrison_live: Well, for the cooler climates (as in England)

george_harrison_live: The current trend is definitely toward Miscanthus

george_harrison_live: You’ll find many lovely varieties

george_harrison_live: try the Zebrensis and also the Malepartis

george_harrison_live: However,

george_harrison_live: if you’re gardening in the tropics

george_harrison_live: I think you’ll find a lovely little ginger called Kahili 

a_t_m98 asks: Mr. Harrison.. what is the opening chord you used for “A Hard Days Night”?

george_harrison_live: It is F with a G on top (on the 12-string)

george_harrison_live: But you’ll have to ask Paul about the bass note to get the proper story.

hari_girl asks: What do you think of Eminem’s grammy nomination?

george_harrison_live: What’s Eminem?

george_harrison_live: Aren’t they choclates or something?

beatles_lvr asks: You started the “band aid” movement; who would you help today? Love you George!!

george_harrison_live: Bob Geldof!

Moyette asks: What did you record with Bill Wyman last month?

george_harrison_live:  An old Ketty Lester song called “Love Letters”

sharonconcannon2000 asks: Why was “I Live For You” left out of the original mix? (I think it’s lovely, thank you for putting out at last!)

george_harrison_live: I didn’t think that we had got a good enough take on it.

george_harrison_live: Except for Pete Drake, the pedal steel guitar player.

george_harrison_live: At that time, I had so many other tracks as well,

george_harrison_live: so we just left it off.

george_harrison_live: It did need patching up

george_harrison_live: in the drum department.

pcpalmiere asks: How close are you to releasing that boxed set of unreleased songs and demos you talked about in Billboard some time back?

george_harrison_live: Well, hopefully during this year I should at least get out a new album and all the other boxes of unreleased demos could possibly follow in 18 months. I’m trying to get everything that has ever been done out there. It’ll just take a little time.

nikolaidisgm asks: George, what do you miss most about John Lennon ?

george_harrison_live: John Lennon .

michaelcalcina asks: George: In the Anthology book, you talk about the unwound G string. What is that? I play guitar and I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

george_harrison_live: It’s one of those little things that goes up your butt so that people can’t see your pantylines.

george_harrison_live: No, It’s actually a 3rd string that doesn’t have a winding around it.

spongeweed70508 asks: Does Paul still piss you off (tell us the truth)

george_harrison_live: Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass — You know his faults — Then let his foibles pass.

george_harrison_live: Old Victorian Proverb.

george_harrison_live: I’m sure there’s enough about me that pisses him off, but I think we have now grown old enough to realize

george_harrison_live: that we’re both pretty damn cute!

incantataa asks: Mr. Harrison, I was wondering if you might tell us a bit about your ideas on love. Romantic love, that is. I recall you having written some of the Beatles’ most beatiful love songs. It would be interesting to hear how your religious attitudes have impacted your beliefs concerning romanticism.

george_harrison_live: Well, the lover that we miss is actually God .

george_harrison_live: The beauty that you see within each other is actually God .

george_harrison_live: So, Krishna was the greatest romanticist. He had girlfriends on every corner!

george_harrison_live: I can’t seperate the two — a beautiful girl is the divine mother, a beautiful man is the manifestation of potential.

fabzzy asks: You’re joking in a most Pythonistic manner tonight George.., it’s great to hear you online!!!

george_harrison_live: PISS OFF!!

george_harrison_live: You nosy bastard!

i_arcos asks: Is it true that you recorded “Homeward Bound” with P. Simon?

george_harrison_live: I recorded that with Paul Simon on Saturday Night Live back in 1853.

tnntxx asks: George, given the drug experimentation of the 60’s, how do you feel about the legalitzation of pot?

george_harrison_live: Well, I saw someone on TV last night pulling out huge loads of pot out of various fields in California. My feeling is…

george_harrison_live: as long as you can go into a store and buy

george_harrison_live: whiskey

george_harrison_live: bourbon

george_harrison_live: and all the rest of it

george_harrison_live: then, a little grass is nothing.

george_harrison_live: the authorities are just causing the price to be high — ‘scuse the pun.

ckeavenyuk asks: Have you any tips to budding songwiters? Do you, as John apparantly advised you stick at it until you have finished it.

george_harrison_live: Try and write some melodies. And some words that mean something.

george_harrison_live: It is true that if you are on a roll, then it’s best to finish it in one go.

george_harrison_live: That’s what Johnny said.

kdtash asks: Any chance that the Dark Horse material, esp. Shankar Family and Friends will be released on CD?

george_harrison_live: Well, along with my own catalog of records

george_harrison_live: the other Dark Horse records

george_harrison_live: hopefully will be finding a new home

george_harrison_live: and coming out on CDs (remastered) sometime in the future.

mp0071999 asks: Hey George will you be ever be back on Yahoo?

george_harrison_live: Possibly. It’s pretty painless for me.

kyntire2001 asks: Happy Birthday (a little early). During your recent Internet video promoting All Things Must Pass , you pointed to an engraving on the back of your guitar. What did the engraving say?

george_harrison_live: It’s a Maclaren strat and it had a metal chassis number plate on the back.

george_harrison_live: Thank you all!

george_harrison_live: May God bless you all.

george_harrison_live: Don’t forget to say all your prayers tonight.

george_harrison_live: Be good little souls.

george_harrison_live: Lots of Love!

george_harrison_live: George.

george_harrison_live:          

ChatYahoo_Lisa: Thank you sooo much for joining us….pretty please come back soon!

george_harrison_live: Check out allthingsmustpass.com.

george_harrison_live: for further entertainment!

ChatYahoo_Lisa: Bye everyone!

I am (almost) crying and laughing at the same time. Laughing, because George is funny and human and likeable, and (almost) crying because he is no longer with us, or at least, no longer with us in the way that he can have Yahoo chats. 

Sorry that’s so bleedin’ long! a-hard-days-night-george-3

P.S.: @parlance , thank you! I’ve seen A Hard Day’s Night but I haven’t seen Help ! yet, hopefully I will soon. I have both albums though :)

Well all they’ve been doing is soundtracks for the past 2 years and I for one need new newno2 (they really didn’t think out their band name properly) material. I mean how many people here have listened to the ‘Beautiful Creatures’ (a flop),Learning to Drive (it was released in Sept. 2014, did you ever hear of it? I didn’t!)soundtracks or watched the TV series The Divide (which was cancelled after 1 season)

I mean, I’m not insinuating anything Dhani but you might be cursed? ;)

Oh feck, I’ve just seen he’s doing a soundtrack for a film called ‘Seattle Road’ about:

“Two young artists using love as a safety net against the fear and pain in their lives in order to propel them deeper into their art”.

I’m all for Dhani doing soundtracks, fair play to him and everything and from what I’ve heard him, Paul and Jon are all right at them but good God do something else instead of churning out soundtrack after soundtrack.

I sound like an awful controlling b*tch in this :P

Ah well Apple are eejits anyways, they are as thick as manure and not half as useful a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Whereas Dhani has done nothing wrong (well as far as we know of, he could be a leader of a small LA based mafia gang for all we know).

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

geez, that looks like that could hurt!  
 

Really? I imagine you’d get a slight headache after.

I mean, if you had to go to the hospital because of damage to your spine you are obviously a weakling and don’t deserve the wrath of the hulk.

I’m not sure how many here realise this, but…

*dramatic pause*

George Harrison does not have a middle name! 

 Poor George! a-hard-days-night-george-10

My middle name is very beneficial as people who don’t have English as a first language find it generally very difficult to understand me saying my proper name (curses having a country accent).

So I call myself by my middle name when people don’t catch my name the first couple of times (huzzah for universal middle names).
