One day until the special reissue of Concert for George, in celebration of George’s 75th birthday this weekend. "Here Comes the Sun” (performed here by Joe Brow...n) was written by George Harrison and first released on The Beatles' 1969 album, Abbey Road. What’s your favorite George Harrison lyric, and what does his music evoke for you?
We had the pleasure of having Olivia Harrison visit our show this past Saturday! She also went back stage to applaud the cast and crew for their amazing work. Thank you for coming to see the show, Olivia! ✌️❤️
“We weren’t even allowed into the control room, then. It was Us and Them. They had white shirts and ties in the control room, they were grown-ups. In the corridors and back rooms there were guys in full-length lab coats, maintenance men and engineers, and then there was us, the tradesmen. (…) We gradually became the workmen who took over the factory. In the end, we had the run of the whole building." - Paul
50 years ago, #OTD, George and John set off for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's #ashram in #Rishikesh, #India. Ringo and Paul arrived a few days later. 〰️ Paul: “I think by 1968 we were all a bit exhausted, spiritually. We’d been The Beatles, which was marvellous. We’d tried for it not to go to our heads and we were doing quite well - we weren’t getting too spaced out or big-headed - but I think generally there was a feeling of: ‘Yeah, well, it’s great to be famous, it’s great to be... rich - but what’s it all for?’” 〰️ Whilst they were there, they created many of the compositions that would become songs on the ’#WhiteAlbum’. 〰️ John: “The funny thing about the camp was that although it was very beautiful and I was meditating about eight hours a day, I was writing the most miserable songs on earth. In ‘Yer Blues’, when I wrote, ‘I’m so lonely I want to die,’ I’m not kidding. That’s how I felt. Up there trying to reach God and feeling suicidal. (…) I think we all go through heaven and hell everyday; just accept that. To feel is to live.”
