Troll Photobomb.

I cannot recall if I’ve posted this pic before, but I love it for so many reasons–seeing George at home in his kitchen(I think), his long curly hair pulled back in a ponytail, the gentle smile on his face, all the little bits and bobs in the kitchen, and, if nothing else, the troll in the front.

I am actually not sure if this is Friar Park, because I have seen a yellow-tiled kitchen in clips of it. However, maybe this was in another one of his homes,in another area of Friar Park, or possibly even at a friend’s home.Wish I knew!

    What a cool picture! At first I thought it was Dhani. It amazes me how they look so alike!

    was his hair naturally that curly or did he perm it?

      In pics I’ve seen of him, he always had very thick, wavy hair. Which is why I wonder why in the world he DID get a perm in the late 70’s. But, so many other men were doing it, I guess he though he’d try it. This is pre-perm, though.

    It is indeed Friar Park. The chap with the wine glass is Terry Doran, who was a business associate of Brian Epstein, and who ran Apple at its inception. He was especially close to both George and John. There are a couple of pictures from this particular evening in various places on the web.

    Love your blog, by the way.

    I also thought that was Dhani! :O

    But still, I love George’s long hair, and I didn’t even know that the Troll dolls were around back in the ’70s. Also, I really love the tiles on the wall by the stove. πŸ˜€

    When I showed this photo to a friend of mine the first thing she pointed to George and said “Oooh, look at that gorgeous Italian bloke!”

    This photo makes me want to go back in time so that I can marry George, approach him from behind in this photo, bury my face in his shiny brown hair, and give his dapper slender body a hug!

    Hi, I’ve been a follower for a while, but I’ve never posted =)
    This picture was taken by Chris O’Dell, and could be found in her book, Miss O’Dell (yep, she’s the one who that song is about).. She was a great friend to the Beatles, worked at Apple, and went on tour with many bands (CSNY, Rolling Stones, just to name a few). It’s a great read. This picture was from when she was living with George, Pattie, and Terry at Friar Park.
    Keep on posting =)
