I received 1219 out of 1500. Interesting since I got all 15 questions correct and did the quiz very quickly.

I think Inner Light thought you were referring to the interview, when you were actually referring to Appy's post about Rogering a Horse.

Yeah, that's what I was referring to. Never mind a-hard-days-night-george-9

Sorry to double post but I just thought of something my nan said a few weeks ago, and here seems like an appropriate place to post it.

We were talking about my first car, and I said that I'd love either a mini (not the new versions) or a pale green or blue beetle. She said, I'd love a ''beetle'' too, his name is George. Me too, nan, me too ahdn_george_08a-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-george-2a-hard-days-night-george-9

The interview for today ^

God I love George's sense of humour :D But it's sad, him talking about all his plans and he never got to complete them :(

What I love most about George as a musician is how beautiful and full of emotion his songs are when it's just him and a guitar. I think that really shows what a talented man he was. He's probably my favourite because he's the Beatle I most relate to (also most attracted to, haha), and I just love what a caring, sincere, eccentric, funny and complicated person he was. It's amazing to me that so many people from all walks of life genuinely adored him as a friend.

I love all The Beatles, but George is really the only famous person who comes close to being something of a "hero" to me.

EDIT: Oh, also, how he was gentle but a total badass at the same time.

And today's videos George and Paul Simon (from Simon & Garfunkel) sing "Here Comes The Sun" and "Homeward Bound" on SNL in 1976. One word: amazing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGZLELC9RCs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiOr5WoAJgg

Here Comes The Sun has crappy quality but the sound is superb, enjoy!

So the topic for today is:

Your favourite videos/photos of:

George performing with other musicians (videos)

George and other celebrities/fans (photos)

To start off:

George and Michael Jackson

Judging on Michael's hair and George's look it seems about '76ish

From the rehearsal for Saturday Night Live with Paul Simon, the sound isn't brilliant but still...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP_aiI8kkMs

And then there is his most important friendship with another musician, Bob Dylan. Many others crop up along the way, but Bob is the constant.

This first comes from a Bob Dylan and George Harrison recording session in 1 May 1970. George provides guitar and backing vocals. The song may be familiar...

From the same session, a Bob tune with George and Bob swapping verses...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9LEYOfdsmo

Same session as above, a couple of covers...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2s3hBTxQko

Rehearsing for the Concert for Bangla Desh...

From the evening performance...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIBxQ1SAXe0

George, Bob, John Fogerty (Credence Clearwater Revival), Taj Mahal and Jesse Ed Davis at The Palomino Club, North Hollywood, 19 May 1987 - often referred to as The Silver Wilburys (Part 1 of 2)...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r23DKWvFb3k

The Palomino Club, North Hollywood, 19 May 1987 (Part 2 of 2)...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CM80gMCHdI

From the year of The Beatles induction into the Hall of Fame in 1988...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5oZqLua884
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E05eBPjZNds

And from later that year you have to have...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8s9dmuAKvU

and...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA

Then in October 1992, they celebrated Bob's 30th Anniversary. This is from the rehearsals...

And as recently as 2009 in Liverpool, Bob was remembering his friend...

No idea if folks have seen this, its from a film called Water that starred Billy Connolly and made by Handmade Films. Anyway in the finale there is a band which includes Ringo, George and Eric Clapton who perform the song Freedom.

Its atually a good film and only goes to show that HandMade films have got a lot of movies out there that go are under the radar but well worth watching. Folks forget the influence George had in the movie world when he formed Handmade to get Life of Brian out.

From thenewno2's Instagram, Dhani preparing the tour bus for the lads tour this month (if you're going you lucky fu....) notice the "Living In The Material World" poster in the background and the "Om" symbol on the side of his gear.

I just thought that I'd share a site that documents several vocal ranges, including George's. If anyone knows of any good George notes, they'd be happy to hear them. I'll post George's, because this is for George fans.. right?

http://therangeplace.forummoti.....e-harrison

Although they say George's vocal range was limited, the highest note they've got is close to the note Paul screams in Long Tall Sally.. I've been scouring the BBC album lately for George notes and all I find are Paul notes. 

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.
