    Well if the story is true Clapton would have blown Harrison away. Not knocking George, he was a good guitar player, perfect for The Beatles, but he wasn't in the same league as Eric Clapton.

    Also, Something by George Harrison and a couple of Stone's songs She's a Rainbow are written about Patti. That's kind of a heavy load to haul. She's probably the most inspiring muse of rock music. That would be very strange to sit around daily and c'mon I mean who doesn't hear at least one of those songs on classic rock radio daily. Apparently she was quite aloof and disaffected. It made those guys nuts that she wasn't a screaming fan.

    Although, Dear Prudence is about Mia Farrow's little sis and Bell Bottom Blues was written by a friend of Clapton's when they were in Delaney and Bonny (sp) and touring India about a young Indian girl who kinda followed them around. Trippy.

    Think that is the reason to respect Keith Richards and the fact possibly because he is that way that he has survived!

    I read the Patti book....yeah she was gorgeous, stacked, aloof and had this little-girl face. No wonder they loved her.
    However, there seems to be a sadness about her now. After all those rock stars, she wound up with very little dough.

    I loved him, and still love him. I put in Concert For George this weekend, in his honor.

    There's something wrong when two Beatles are dead.

    Was it George Harrison who fended off the robbers who came to his house? I remember the story, but it's fuzzy.

    In late 1999 Harrison survived a knife attack by an intruder in his home. On the evening of 30 December 1999, Michael Abram broke into the Harrisons' Friar Park home in Henley-on-Thames and stabbed George multiple times, ultimately puncturing his lung. Harrison and his wife, Olivia, fought the intruder and detained him for the police. 35-year-old Abram, who believed he was possessed by Harrison and was on a "mission from God" to kill him, was later acquitted on grounds of insanity. Harrison was traumatized by the invasion and attack and was rarely seen in public afterward.

    I have my own little traditon where every year on the first day of spring I play "Here Comes the Sun" a few times in a row off my Abby Road record album.
    "It's been a long cold lonly winter" is soooo true this year!

    Love George. I always found it interesting how he wrote "Here Comes the Sun" to reflect the changing attitude of the band while recording Abbey Road, even though they had to know it was thier last album together.

    The demo versions of "Something" and "While my guitar gently weeps" are absolutely stunning.

    Pattie was GORGEOUS.
    Clapton was one of George's closest friends in the late 60s, and he fell madly in love with Pattie. Pattie didnt want to leave George and Eric was so depressed that he became a reclusive and a junkie. Finally, Pattie and George divorced in 1975 and Eric married Pattie in 1979.
    Songs like Bell Bottom Blues, Wonderful Tonight and Layla are about Pattie.

    Great pics leevan!!! I love the mirror one. Do you know was George bitter about the Clapton thing and did he and Pattie remain friends? Also, why did she and Clapton break up?

    One more thing, did Pattie ever have children, with Clapton or otherwise? I could probably google, but it's more interesting to hear it here!

    Hey Lisa,

    Pattie doesnt have children. She tried to have a baby with George, and later with Eric, she even went trhough a couple of fertility treatments, but she just wasnt able to carry a baby.
    George found out about Eric being in love with his wife when he (George) appeared in a party to find Pattie. He spotted Pattie and Eric in the garden and told them: Hey, whats going on? (or something like that) and Eric finally told him " i have to tell you man, im in love with your wife". George was really angry, he yelled at Pattie: Well, are you coming with me or going with him? and Pattie said that she wanted to go home, with him.
    Pattie was very much in love with George, but their marriage wasnt working.
    She knew that George had started to cheat on her and she was terribly hurt.
    In 1974-75 she decided to leave him for good and fell in love with Eric.
    Pattie and Eric's marriage was a rocky one, thats for sure.
    She had to deal with Eric's alcoholism and his depressions... then, in the 80s she found out that he was cheating on her....same story again.... but the last nail in the coffin was when she found out that one of Eric's lovers, Lori del Santo, had gotten pregnant. Pattie was so depressed and hurt that she couldnt take it anymore.
    By the way, the son that Lori bore Eric was Conor, the poor kid that died when he was only 4 years old.

    WOW! What info, thank you!

    What a sad, sad story about George cheating and then Eric cheating and then she finally left him when he got someone else pregnant. Then he fell out of the window, right? Jesus.

    Whatever happened to Lori?

    Thanks leevan.

    Hey, hey, why all the Family Guy hatred all of a sudden? I've listened to George all my life and I didn't think that was offensive, that's just Family Guy's humor... it was kind of tasteless to rerun that episode like, the week after his death, but still... South Park is a lot worse in that respect I think.

    I dunno, I think my appreciation for his music has dwindled a little bit over the years... everyone raves about this bootleg full of "All Things Must Pass" demos, with just George and his guitars. I think the unreleased songs on there are just horrid (especially "Tell Me What Has Happened To You").

    THAT SAID, though, before anyone jumps down my throat.... I love "Within You, Without You." (I share Ringo's appreciation of that.)

    London police conduct drug raid at home of George Harrison

    The London drug squad appears at house of George Harrison and Pattie Boyd with a warrant and drug-sniffing canines. Boyd immediately used the direct hotline to Beatles headquarters and George returned to find his home turned upside down. He is reported to have told the officers "You needn't have turned the whole bloody place upside down. All you had to do was ask me and I would have shown you where I keep everything."
    Without his assistance, the constables, including Sergeant Pilcher who had directed the drug-related arrest of John Lennon the previous year, had already found a considerable amount of hashish. Harrison and Boyd were arrested and as they were being escorted to the police station, a photographer began shooting pictures of the famous couple. Harrison chased after the photographer, with the cops trailing right behind him down the London street. Finally, the man dropped his camera and George stomped on it before the officers subdued him.
    Harrison and his model wife, who missed Paul and Linda McCartney's wedding that same day because of the arrest, were released on bail. A few weeks later, Harrison and Boyd were allowed to plead guilty. Despite the rather prodigious amount of hash recovered from their home, the authorities were satisfied that it was all for their personal use. They were fined 250 pounds each, and even had a confiscated pipe returned to them. Ten years later, Boyd married guitarist Eric Clapton and Harrison sang and played at their wedding.


    I love the fact that he was upset byt the police messing up his house to find the "gear" when he was just willing to show them where it was!

    Although Lennon and McCartney wrote most of the hits, it was George who composed the opening riffs for them, especially the early songs.

    I liked Harrison. He became a much better guitar player towards the end of the 1960's thanks to his best friend Eric Clapton. Clapton made him a very good guitar player. He wasn't much around 1964 or 1965 but after 1967 he made tremendous strides thanks to Clapton.
