I've posted this before but for some of you young'uns who haven't seen it. The glorious Weird Al "interview" with Georgie-boy. 

Al is a big George fan, and Dhani's friend- he played at George Fest in 2016. He also "did" an interview with Paul which is nowhere near as good as George's.

 

And my favourite George video is Got My Mind... (Version 2, I don't particularly care for Version 1), that pure pisstake scene with the body double doing the dance breakdown and back-flip is absolute perfection.   

NO GEORGE NOT THE RAT POISON YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR

That was great a-hard-days-night-george-9

I didn't process that it was a fake interview for the first minute or so until he said the line about sharing the same wife with Eric and I remembered watching the actual interview... so that was a bit confusing but wow.

Also, good choice for the music video. I like that one as well.

Putting this here to say once again how much I enjoy George’s playing. So many players have superior tecnique and speed, but few could ever hold a candle to his pure feel. His perfect blend in the 3 part harmony and his guitar fills and solos that perfectly accentuate anything he plays on.  There is no simple explanation to the way he plays. Like Ringo, he had the magic touch and feel that sends chills up your spine on any note he plays. I belive Jeff Lynne has a similar quote praising the organic beauty of the Harrisonics.

Yes indeed, I believe I posted about it before in this thread but here it is again.

Everything George ever did was just so George, including his guitar, and that's why I love the man. heart

I’m on mobile so I can’t direct you to the link, but in either this thread or the “misc questions about george” thread somebody asked about George’s cats and @AppleScruffJunior treated us to a nice collection of pictures with a writeup. Good luck browsing!

That's a very pretty cat, look at its eyes!! 

A cat like that would walk all over you though, it'd know you're resistant to its charms.

It is pretty! Honestly though any cat could walk all over me if it wanted to, just because it's a cat and it's not possible for me to not love a cat. My cat is an actual demon but I still love him unconditionally. I just can't let him in my room at night, or he will bite my head off. He does that: he sneaks in while you're sleeping, jumps up on the bed out of nowhere and scares you half to death, and then he bites your head. Hard.

I love George's vocals and the way his voice stands out from the others when they sing Yesterday at the end of the 1965 Christmas message (go to 5:20):

IMO he should've sung like this more!a-hard-days-night-george-9

I really love George's voice on I Forgot To Remember To Forget, though it's different than his normal (beautiful) style.

Most do.

I've never noticed the Sgt Pepper t-shirt in the background just after halfway through. Has anyone else noticed it?

I already did. 

The shot of George laughing is the most adorable part of the video for me. ahdn_george_06 And I think that purple jacket is the same one he wore in one of the Hello Goodbye promos.
