I never would have made the purple jacket connection though. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I'd say he started brushing it with a wide brush and it brought out his naturally wavy hair. My hair looks similar if I brush my natural curls. It gets flat at the top and frizzy and poofy at the bottom- not a good look for me, although it suited him.

He would get a perm in '77 which was... a look :/

Wait wait wait wait. You're telling me that that ENORMOUS GODLIKE GLORY of HAIRCURLS was natural?!?!!!! It wasn't a perm?

WHOA. I'M SO JELLLLYYYY that is my favourite George hair, and his clothes from around that time I also find charming. (I like mid-'70s granddad clothes.)

And whilst we're on the subject of poof=life, ladies and laddies, I give you the One Poof to Rule Them All...

ROBERT ANTHONY PLANT
(who, coincidentally, was a huge Tolkien fan in those days so calling him the One Poof to Rule Them All is very appropriate. a-hard-days-night-john-6)

I do agree that the 1970 beard was a bit much. In those short-moptop pics he looks uncanily like former president Barack Obama with the ears, which is giving me 2008 flashbacks. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I'm trying to find a way to agree that is strong enough to fully convey my feelings on the matter, but it's not really possible. How about:

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That post originally had ten of each George smiley as well but apparently more than fifty smileys in one post aren't allowed. (Probably for the best...)

I once saw someone use an entire page of smileys (that was probably several website-updates ago, I'm an antiquated Bibler a-hard-days-night-george-10) and, believe you me, it was a terrifying sight to behold. (Wasn't even under a spoiler as yours is.) a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I remember that. I think it was *ahem* HMBeatlesfan... That took ages to load the page.

Yes, on topic. I realised a few days ago that I have so not listened to enough solo George in my life (basically just ATMP and a couple of other songs including Got My Mind Set On You). So I'm now binging on lots of new music I haven't heard before, it's fab!!

Aw honey you haven't been a fan for too terribly long and you're probably a budget-limited wee one like myself, go easy on yerself. Only owning one album doesn't make you any less of a George fan than someone who has them all. It's not measured in how much you have (material world) or how much you know (brainwashing), it's how much ya love (same goes for anything)...

This is la la lala love! heart

That was your sagacious SG wisdom for today, you are welcome a-hard-days-night-george-4 (this thread does tend to bring out my best, must be a Harrisonian influence)
