In remembrance.

Ten years ago we lost a beautiful soul.Please post your favorite George memories in the comments.

My personal favorite thing I remember seeing about him was his Billboard Awards speech. It was adorable, full of humility and warmth.

    Love this picture.

    I wrote in my blog what I think and feel about George, when he was blown away by his music, in short, my connection with him. is in Portuguese, I could not express myself with so much feeling in another language.

    Well, in short, my favorite moment is in the anthology, when he speaks of his spiritual quest.

    Where does the time go? It’s hard to believe it has been ten years. I remember his passing as though it happened yesterday. He will always be a reminder of that wonderful time I had in the sixties that sadly will be a place I can never return to. George will always be in my heart. May he rest in peace, he is really missed.

      i wish i could’ve been alive in the sixties- i was only 4 when he died, so i never really got a chance to “know” him until sometime within the last few years… 😥

    One of mine has to be when he asked Princes Margaret and Lord Snowdon at the AHDN premiere party, “Your highness, we are really hungry and we can’t eat until you two go.” :’) I’ve been thinking of George all day today and what I can do for “George Harrison Appreciation Day”. Our school has uniforms, so I couldn’t wear anything there… 😦

    I was only 3 when he died, so, it’s sure I can’t remember… but it’s like talk about a family member who died when I was a baby: I can’t remember , but everyone says it was a good person, so you love this person anyways. It’s the same thing with George.
    Like I use to say (in my language, portuguese): Good People die fast. Look at mark chapman, getting old, but still here, “doing nothing but aging”! Ah man, it makes me angry.

    “Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
    The Lord took her away from me.
    She’s gone to heaven so I’ve got to be good,
    So I can see my baby when I leave this world.”

    I know it isn’t a beatles’ song, or something like, but we can have a little inspiration !
    I can’t conform today, George’s Death Anniversary, the sun was shining and people was happy, as if nothing had happened. November 29th is so depressing to me (mortal fan of Geo) but I reserve this day to remember all that George has done, good and bad things, and thicken my love for him…

    I remember a few days before his death, I was about twelve, TV reported that George Harrison, knowing he was dying, had gone to the U.S. with family. I broked down into tears like a child, this time my brother called and told my dad, who called to console me by saying all I didn’t want to hear: “My daughter, accepts, George has no chance, unfortunately,” I only remember shouted a resounding “no.”
    I had hope, I can not explain how, but I had high hopes, sure George would survive, I had hope until the end, until the last day. I talked with him as if he could hear “I know you will escape, little Beatle.”

    When he died…well, I was at school, early morning, and someone for the school team who knows I was a Beatlemaniac came to me and said, insensibly, George is death. Ah… I think a lot of the classrooms heard my shout. I came home early, but this time the reason was worse than any disease.

    In a recent article, Julian Lennon stated he and George had a very warm and close relationship as a child and adult. I knew he and Paul were close due to Paul’s concern over his welfare during his parent’s divorce, but had no idea he was close to George too. He also stated that the Lennon airport should have been named for the group instead of just his dad.

      I agree with Julian…nothing against John, but it is a little annoying how I often hear the term “John Lennon and the Beatles” after asong plays on the radio,or if anything is Beatle-related in merchandise or somesuch in a catalog or store, it’s usually a Beatles thing or two and the rest all John Lennon. He was one of four, and not Saint John.

        I agree, John was remarkable, but trying to compare Beatles is like comparing apples, oranges, and PASSION fruit!!!

    Yeah Beatle airport does have a cute ring to it. My late mom use to get tired of Paul stating how great his songs was, She also stated all 4 made the group great. That was nice when accepting his Rock’n Roll Hall of Fame award, Paul pushed to get George and Ringo in too. It was in 1998 or 1999 I believe, I know Linda had died. Ringo is the only one that has not been honored solely.

    Nice blog about him being a rock pioneer in regards to charity concerts. Alicia Keyes recently honored him as well.

    I did not know his brother Peter died in 2007, here’s info on his demise. Cancer really wrecked havoc on that family.

    What we do for ourselves dies with us;
    but what we do for others lives forever, becomes our living legacy

    It is 11:26pm PST, where I am in L.A., on the 29th of November, and before this day is over, I had to say:
    Gee has been a key
    to a door
    I had passed by a thousand times
    in a house
    I’ve lived in all my life.

    Love, stronger than death
    Passion, fiercer than the grave
    -Song of Solomon

    I love you, baby

    He who binds to himself a joy
    doth the winged life destroy
    but he who kisses the joy as it flies
    lives in the eternity’s sunrise-
    William Blake
