I have absolutely nothing to add to this thread except that I have been a big fan of George and his music since the mid-60s.

I think this may have to do with a thing I have for supporting the underdog, and (for me) George always seemed to have that vibe in the Beatles.

I have just been lucky enough to receive the Dark Horse box for Christmas (we are REALLY into forward planning down here :)   ).  Way back when I used to buy every new album as he released them (though I didn't have Electronic Sound or Wonderwall Music).  We had our first record player in the house in 1970 and the All Things Must Pass triple set (with the poster which hit my wall in no time flat) and the Concert for Bangladesh box were the pride and joy of my early collection.

Hmm - I may need to become a member of this here club ...

Correct apple01

They were on tour and Weeks had a craving for lobster. He went back to his hotel room and found a bathtub full of lobsters courtesy of George. :)

 

Clue for Q16:

Dhani was 18 when George went to Vrindavan for the first time. Dhani was born 2 years after 33 1/3 was released. Do the maths a-hard-days-night-george-10

33 1/3 was '76 + 2 + 18 = 96. 1996.

 

My above answer was a total sarcastic guess as inspired by Paul Merton.

Assuming it's not musician, which would be too easy, I would guess at film producer for 14.

Ah, just re-read the question, so do you mean where was George mentioned in Paul's entry, and not what George was listed as in that year's "Who's Who"?

Oops the "at 14" bit confused me, your two guesses above are wrong.

Think of it in this way: George-1982, hasn't released an album since '79, hasn't had major success since LITMW release. Only producing films, rarely seen in public.

Now what section would he be in?

Not quite, think along the lines of 'missing'

Yes. now put that under a pedestrian-phrase used in a magazine

Kind of "what's hot" and "what's not"

Are these meant to be clues, more like brain teasers.

 

His present. Erm, a welder, a pair of wire cutters, safety glasses.

I'll accept it, it was a tool box (a hell of  a lot of use that was, eh?) it was a traditional gift to give to a young lad

Clue for Q18 part 2: It was around lunch-time
