RIP Georgie. I remember hearing about it like it was yesterday, it was on the radio on my way to school, that was a shitty day :(

one of my favorites from him, and the first solo I ever learned to play

He's the only Beatle i ever got to see, and really it wasnt
like seeing him, he was a guest of honor when i went to see
Ravi Shankar, he came out and played a couple songs on
Sitar then left. But it still broght the house down, i think
that was in 71 at Southern Oregon College.

George is a major musical and life influence for me. When I heard he had lung cancer, I was very saddened, but was looking very forward to his last recording, Brainwashed. I listen to, and play, some Harrison just about every day. He was/is a simply great man to me - I miss him, though he is still a significant part of my life....

Thanks for the memories
while my guitar gently weeps

that was one of the greatest assemblies of talent of all time with george on stage, can you imagine what it would have been like to be part of it!

As stupid as it sounds, I cried when I heard the news. I had grown up listening to the Beatles (thanks, Mom), and it felt like a part of my childhood died with him.

with me, it was not that my parents were beatles fans - they had two albums until the reissue of Sgt Pepper - but that they knew, as did i, that george was a real person who had flaws but wonder as well. i miss him today as much as i did ten years ago, and i was a silly, angry, stupid 22 year old back then.

i'll admit it. i'm a pragmatist, and somewhat a cynic. but i've been kidna sad all day thinking about george.

stupid world.

I think it's a bum rap, the good Beatles are the first to go and we're stuck here with those two...

I kid, I kid, Ringo's alright.







Again, I kid, I really do like Paul's bass playing.
