Happy Birthday!

So here we are, back at George’s birthday again.

We are simply going to celebrate  the 24th and 25th since in recent years there was some alleged confusion about his birthday. He was born so close to midnight is what causes the problem, I think.

Would anyone like to comment with their favorite George memory, link, photo, quote, etc. on this special anniversary of the coming of this beloved soul?

    My favorite quote by George – All the world is a birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much. Love you Georgie! ^_^ ❤ ❤ ❤

    For you…”because you’re sweet and lovely” George… we love you! Love that song and that gorgeous slide guitar (though John was the one sliding in that song)!!

    George is simply the best because he’s very introspective and obtained a great sense of self-peace in his later years… ❤ and of course, he'll always live on in our hearts 🙂 Happy Birthday George!! "Have you got a cigarette for me pleaseee?"

    Happy Birthday, George! He did find out in later years (around the time his mother died in 1970) that his birthday was actually the 24th instead of the 25th; He was born merely minutes before midnight.. His mother figured that celebrating his birthday on the 25th made more sense because he was actually a year older on that day, rather than only 5 minutes on the 24th.

    He thought it was hilarious, and considered both days his birthday from there on. Happy Birthday again, George!

    If anyone is interested, concertforgeorge.com has the Concert for George on live stream all day in honor of his birthday.

      Yeah, I saw that, even bought the DVD. But I have only watched it once. I found myself searching, looking for him, waiting for him to come out. Too stressful……………

    My first distinct memory of George is from when I was 10 years old, seeing the “I’ve Got my Mind Set on You” video on TV, loving the dancing taxidermied animals, loving the song (even though he didn’t write it, although I didn’t know that at the time), and falling in love with George. I think that video also sparked my interest in the Beatles in general, which has grown into a lifelong attachment.

    I remember the first time seeing him in person at the Atlantic City Convention Center in August of 1964. A beautiful but shy young man just strumming on his guitar, which, I could not hear due to screaming young fans. Thanks George for the wonderful memories and your beautiful music. He would have been 68 this year, just two years older than me.

      Wow….what a lovely memory. 🙂

      Can you imagine…George at 68?

        It seems I have lost the ability to conceptualize the passage of time. I can still visualize that rather young, translucent, whisper of a person standing so close at a concert, I could almost touch him. I thank God for the experience everyday

      Betty, that is a lovely memory. I will have to live vicariously through your generation’s experiences. Be sure to keep sharing them!! Did you go with friends, and do you remember how much the tickets cost?

        I went to Atlantic City with my cousin and younger sister, not expecting to see the Beatles. All the tickets were sold out. We got our tickets from a young woman who was selling them in front of the Convention Center. If my memory serves me right, the original tickets were two bucks but we bought them for 3. We were very lucky to see them because all attempts failed due to tickets being sold out in both Philly and AC. The seats were very far away but we managed to get closer because fans that were in front of us left their seats and stood in the aisle to be closer. We climbed over the seats to get closer. We stood on the seats when the Beatles were on, no one was sitting down. This was a wonderful experience of my youth, a day I will never forget.

        By the way, George was our favorite.

        I don’t know about what she paid, but it cost $5.50 for very good seats in Kansas City, Missouri, Municipal Stadium!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!! They weren’t even supposed to perform, but Charlie Finley, the Kansas City A’s owner and Brian Epstein worked out a deal………….Halleluia!!

    When I am down and frustrated, I think of George and his gentle nature, and I lift my head up, take a deep breath and feel energized. Amazing..
