@Rube – Thanks, I enjoyed your post as well. I didn’t realize how close the house is to the front gate. I was thinking about Friar Park last weekend when I heard Tony Hawk had a really bad accident while skating. This post is about his connection to FP…

Olivia has written a cash grab load of wank ’20 poems, 100 pages for £30′ book. It was meant to commemorate George’s 20th deathiversary which was…quite a few months ago, Olivia. 

 

Genesis signed copy is a low low £110 for the basic signed copy, and an uber deluxe £285 one with shite prints and the iconic ‘actual dead tree from Friar Park’ bookmarks make a return, I guess their ATMP brothers didn’t sell that well?

My only takes from this are:

1) Friar Park is too gorgeous to only be experienced by the Harrisons and their guests

2) Olivia is clearly desperate for cash

 

Links to buy for any fool who needs to part quickly with their money are in the description of the video (alternatively you can buy a video chat for an hour with me for £30 – I guarantee it will be a lot more entertaining!)

 

The book is also Number 1 in Erotic Photography on Amazon right now which is hilarious.

These limited edition releases with pieces of useless crap you know you never wanted but go on, give us the cash, you know you’ll only blow it all on other stuff you probably don’t need is getting more embarrassing and tactless with every product thrown out. 

@AppleScruffJunior. This £30 video chat; is it with yourself only or are we paying £30 together for a video chat with Olivia?

Especially in the current financial state for most average people – it’s embarrassing to be selling that tat. I know the book has probs been in development for years but God does it look tasteless. If I were Olivia I’d be very embarrassed to have to be flogging that.

 

Re: the call, it was originally me only but sure Olivia is on Instagram if I offer her 5 quid from each call she might pop in for 15 minutes.

Excerpts of Olivia’s interview on BBC4’s ‘Woman ‘s Hour’; in this you get the cheery subjects of the phone call informing them of John’s murder and the 1999 Friar Park attack on George when Olivia fought the attacker. The full interview is during the programme here, starting at the beginning of the episode.

The interview was to promote her new book of poetry.

Urgent correction to issue:

Beatlebug erroneously said
This is a George Harrison in Hawaii appreciation post

GH_Hawaii_66.jpegImage Enlarger

I have been reliably informed by our long-running reigning queen of the fiendish thingies, @AppleScruffJunior, that this is actually Fiji, not Hawaii!

Bonus message: I noticed that, on YouTube music, Somewhere In England is now using the beautiful black-and-white England crown album cover instead of the utterly boring one in color that it was released with back in ’81. I approve. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

21 years have passed: George Harrison (25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001)

The last time I met him, he was very sick and I held his hand for four hours. As I was doing it I was thinking, “I’ve never held his hand before, ever. This is not what two Liverpool fellas do, no matter how well you know each other.” I kept thinking, “He’s going to smack me here.” But he didn’t. He just stroked my hand with his thumb and I thought, “Ah, this is OK, this is life. It’s tough but it’s lovely. That’s how it is.” I knew George before I knew any of the others and I loved that man. I’m so proud to have known him.

I have named my ukulele “Handle with Care”. I’m also learning lots of new Beatles ukulele tabs, especially enjoying George’s songs from Living in the Material World.

I’ve always said, if I’m ever getting a uke, I’m naming it Hana, after “Soft-Hearted Hana”, and George’s favorite Hawaiian island. heart

I never heard this song before — it’s wonderful! Very playful and offbeat. At the very end it sounds like George has the tape slowed or sped up to change keys.

^It is indeed. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Speaking of George things, I saw Concert For George at an old movie theater with my friend on December 30th (which is coincidentally Jeff Lynne’s birthday). I had originally intended to go on November 29th when they were doing the 20th anniversary showing, but unfortunately neither I nor my friend were able to make it that night. But the theater added more showings at a time when he was home from college and I had to cancel my New Year’s vacation plans, so we were able to catch this show, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We basically chair-danced through the whole thing, and we were far and away the youngest audience members too a-hard-days-night-john-6

I was really glad that I had someone to go with who appreciates George’s music, too.heart
