Harrison Appreciation Feb 25th

The world got lucky on February 25, 1943...
George Harrison came into our world.

All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much. George Harrison

Love you still, always will....

2. His persistent friendship and love for Clapton, alone, speaks to his character

I’m not sure I would have ever given a second thought to a friend who pined so hard for my wife that he wrote “the greatest rock song of all time about her” and then ultimately got her! George loved Eric like a brother, which is why when Eric was at his lowest from drug addiction, George was there and got him help that he needed. Harrison is a musical treasure.

6. "Life in 12 Bars"

The Showtime documentary about Eric Clapton goes in depth into their friendship and also how Pattie Boyd figured into that equation. I highly recommend it!

Back to George tho.....RIP playing with some phenomenal musicians in the afterlife!

12. Ive seen it...a beautiful documentary, but would highly recommend it to other!

The musicians gather on the stage that night are truly incredible and it does speak to George’s influence!

I hope I can catch him playing in the afterlife!

(As an aside, I don’t think any single woman has had more hit songs written about her than Pattie Boyd...)

14. Her sister Jenny may not have had as many

songs written about her, Jennifer Juniper by Donovan the only one I can think of off the top of my head, however she knew quite a few well known musicians intimately. Oh, those Boyd sisters!

19. Dhani is a gem!

Here’s him performing with Jeff Lynn, who I refer to as the sixth Beatle because damn he sounds so close to their sound! If you listen close to Dhani’s vocals he sounds remarkably like his father:



Here’s Dhani with his band singing his father’s part on “End of the Line” from “The Traveling Wilburys”



And Dhani solo:



Not gonna lie, love his music...but I love that he’s about my height as well!

23. Mahalo, Docreed! I will listen to all of them now!



Ringo and Paul in the audience.. Dhani' voice is quite moving.. so much emotion.. blast from the past!

The Drummer(was he wearing an eye patch?).. and the Blond are really good, too!.. and of course Jeff Lynne!

"Sometimes ya gotta be Strong!.." I like those Traveling Wilburys Who's the guy to Dhani's right with the beard? He has a lot of spark.. as do they all.

Dhani's only 39.. a youngster! August 1, 1978

27. Lmao...thanks for the youngster line

Dhani is my age and I turned 40 this month. I’m not “old” but it feels that way...as to you’re other questions I’ll have to go back and look.

Mahalo!

28. I just found this of Dhani on Jimmy Kimmel..

October 10, 2017.

Yes, you're both youngsters.. enjoy it!



That song could be for us in America who are All About Waiting!

Thanks again, Doc!

Lyrics~

[Verse 1: Dhani Harrison]
I know all there is to know about waiting
Never mind the quintessential question
We will carry you to slack and leave
Like a guide that's broken captive from mystery

[Verse 2: Dhani Harrison]
So much to remember when your day end
So much to forget when you're afraid
After all the troubles and the [?]
I know all there is to know about waiting, waiting
Waiting, waiting

[Chorus: Dhani Harrison]
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be

[Verse 3: Dhani Harrison]
It's just [?] you cannot that recall
Future's not a, may not be at all
You surround it may as well, embrace it
Revolution, evolution, patience

[Verse 4: Dhani Harrison]
Even though you're present in the moment
Doesn't mean that you're not sad and lonely
Can you hear the sound of revelations
I know all there is to know about waiting, waiting
Waiting, waiting

Chorus: Dhani Harrison]
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be
It's not like you used to be, it's not like you used to be
