George's Febrooary Day 9:

Tribute to George's first proper house- Kinfauns. Built in the '50's, George and Pattie lived there from 1964 to 1970. George bought the house for £20,000 (in 2018-money £400,000, US$518,000, €457,000) It was knocked-down in the early 2000's and a new two-storey house built on the site.

Haha, 1979 George is priceless - makes me think of some kinda therapist, who wants us to talk about our FEELINGS, man! Or something.

Great gallery, SPB!

Also, some of you were posting songs with the title Freedom on the IITDTTT and did you know George is featured on a song with that title?

I was listening to an interview with Slowhand from '89 and he was asked about George, and he said he considers him to be like an "older brother"- ain't that sweet?

One of the reasons he gave for doing the Japan tour was that people were always asking him when he went on tour, "where's George?", "how is George doing?", "what's George up to?"- you can't have one without the other it seems. 

George also, it should be added, didn't really want to do the Japanese tour but wanted to help Eric with his grief over the loss of his son Conor (and also to help quit smoking 😛 ).

His pin-striped trousers that he wore on the Smothers Brothers' show is another one that you see over-and-over again in late '60's photos. The man had his staples in his wardrobe.

That's quite an amazing gesture. To go and do a tour when you would rather remain at home mainly to help someone else get over a horrendous loss is an incredible act of friendship.

George was an amazing friend. mccartney-shrug_01_gif a-hard-days-night-george-9 heart

It's said that people born under the Pisces sign are incredibly compassionate and utterly devoted to their friends (and also fond of music). They're also said to be prone to sadness, fear, and victimhood. ahdn_george_01

Also that utterly fabulous t-shirt with the collar-and-bubbly-tie printed on it -- spotted most notably during the Mad Day Out session, and also at home at Kinfauns:

George didn't like touring. He said before that he didn't like the whole performing the same setlist over and over again, and travelling from city to city in a short span of time, he found it very exhausting, and much preferred once-off gigs where he could do his songs, and finish up. 

In saying that

George's Febrooary Day 11: The Dark Ho(a)rse 1974 Tour! 

 

^The best photo of George ever, I hope you all agree.

^Ravi, Peter Sellers, and the Dark Horse himself.

^Such a gorgeous photo, George&Olivia.

You got there just before me Pepp well done.

Coincidentally 11 is my favourite number so it's suitable that it's double-George on Day 11.
