RIP George. Posted by Spag_oz on 2007 05 30 at 03:28 AM • permalink Wow haven’t heard that one for over twenty years. I remember the album it was off. Always liked that song. Delightfully cheesy film clip too. George was a genuine F1 fan. Story was once he was at a Grand Prix and got talking to one of the drivers who didn’t recognise him. What do you do the driver asked? “I used to play in a band” george replied.

It became a minor hit, but they don’t play it much these days. Posted by Andrea Harris, Administrator on 2007 05 30 at 06:26 AM • permalink Many years ago, in Adelaide during the F1 Grand Prix weekend, we were in a restaurant when in walked George Harrison and his good friend, Barry Sheene champion motor bike rider and fabulous V8 Supercar commentator Everyone pretended not to notice them which was great – but it was hard not to go and get their autographs though There, that’s my George Harrison story Posted by aussiemagpie on 2007 05 30 at 10:05 AM • permalink Yeah, I remember that song from my college days. For some reason, those George Harrison songs from that specific time really sunk in deep, so that even now if I hear them (and it’s been years), I immediately think of Freshman year. Good old George. I think he and Ringo may have been the smartest two Beatles after all. Posted by Tex Lovera on 2007 05 30 at 10:15 AM • permalink Page 1 of 1 pages Commenting is not available in this weblog entry.
