Within him without him - not so quiet life of George
Beatle George Harrison died 10 years ago but his story lives on.'Who he is and was, will live or it won't.''
As Olivia Harrison makes clear, in keeping with the sanguine philosophy of life she shared with her husband, the former Beatles guitarist George Harrison , she is not hung up on the idea of nurturing a legacy. Nor does she define herself by the role she's held for 33 years - wife of one of the most famous men in popular music - even if for most of us any interaction we have with her is always in that context.

I think she has to keep releasing stuff. I mean, there are lots of fans of George everywhere, and we all know that there are still songs, pictures and videos that nobody has ever seen. I know some people hated that 1974 tour, for example, but I'd like to see some more of it.

I would imagine there would be more just not in the near future as the documentary has taken a lot of time, energy and emotion. There will be time to recouperate and enjoy some freedom without having to start thinking about releasing a George boxset or whatever.

I am sure it sounds crass, but you can be sure we'll see George Harrison material coming out. The recent bio-pic and book is just one example. To her credit Olivia puts out high quality stuff - but none of it's free - not that it should be.
Sanguine or not, I imagine she likes to eat.
