I have downloaded bits and pieces of Billy Birmingham's best and it
is hilarious but only if you have listened to a lot of cricket being
broadcast. Thanks, Rob, for telling me about it. He is spectacular
and has obviously listened to a lot of cricket, himself.

<i>Paperback Writer</i> was a Beatles single; not on any of their

Paul McCartney: "He was a lovely guy and a very brave man and had a
wonderful sense of humor. He is really just my baby brother." 

"We were school friends together, you know. And we joined the Beatles
together and went through all of that together so … it's a very sad
day." 

"I was lucky enough to see him a couple of weeks ago and he was still
laughing and joking." 

"His music will live on forever. He was a very strong, loving man.
But he didn't suffer fools gladly." 

Dhani Harrison (George's Son): We're truly grateful for the
tremendous support we've received from friends and from the very many
members of the public whom we don't know personally, but who thought
of us and send us good wishes." 

Ringo Starr: "George was a best friend of mine. I loved him very much
and I will miss him greatly … We will miss George for his sense of
love, his sense of music and his sense of laughter." 

Yoko Ono: "George has given so much to us in his lifetime and he
contiues to do so even after his passing with his music, his wit and
his wisdom. His life was magical and we felt we had shared a little
bit of it by knowing him. Thank you George. It was grand knowing
you." 

Bob Geldof: ""As he said himself, how do you compare with the genius
of John and Paul? But he did, very well." 

Michael Palin: "George wasn't head in the clouds all the time. When
it came to business and all that he was feet very much on the
ground." 

Alan Light: (editor, Spin) "It is almost impossible to come up with a
pop musician of any sort of the last four decades who was not touched
by the work of the Beatles … Artists — like Paul Simon, like Peter
Gabriel — have looked to Latin and Indian and African music. The
Beatles were the first to do that in pop music and George was the
direct link that caused them to do that." 

Anthony DeCurtis: (critic, Rolling Stone): "I think his real gift was
the kind of mystical view of life that he brought to their music and
popular music in general."

Well done!

I'd recommend spending some time at George's official website:

VH1 did a wonderful interview with George and Ravi Shankar. He had
just "dropped by" to help Ravi promote a new album and ended up
picking up a guitar.

He talked about the Concert for Bangladesh, Bob Dylan, the Traveling
Wilburys, the evolution of man, the Maharishi and other topics.

Fab news:

A LAST album of George Harrison’s music was being finished in
secrecy
in the months before his death. He played tracks from the CD to his
family and friends in his private room at a Los Angeles hospital
last
Sunday, four days before he died. 

[...]

Jim Keltner, the world’s most in-demand session drummer, who has
recorded with Harrison, Lennon, Ringo Starr and Bob Dylan, flew from
his home in California to Friar Park to add drums to the tracks that
Harrison and other musicians, believed to include Eric Clapton, had
recorded. 

Keltner, who last played with Harrison in the Traveling Wilburys
supergroup in the 1980s but still saw him regularly as a friend,
said
this weekend: “It was fantastic to be in the studio with him again.
Some of the new songs are very poignant concerning his life in the
past few years. It will be obvious when you hear them what they are
about.

Harrison's ashes to be immersed in Ganges
December 3, 2001 Posted: 12:13 PM EST (1713 GMT)

NEW DELHI, India -- The ashes of the late Beatle George Harrison are
to be immersed in the sacred Ganges River, according to a spokesman
for
the Hare Krishna movement. 

Maha Mantra Das, a New Delhi spokesman for International Society for
Krishna Consciousness, told wire services that Harrison's widow,
Olivia, and his son, Dhani, 23, would be accompanied by two Hare
Krishna devotees who performed Hindu rites on Harrison's ashes with
the
family in London, England. Harrison was a devotee of the Hindu
faith. 

Olivia and Dhani Harrison were headed for the holy city of Varanasi
to
carry out the rites, according to Reuters. The Associated Press
reported that the ashes also would be sprinkled at Allahabad, where
Hinduism's three holiest rivers -- the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati
--
converge.

Reflections from around the world
on hearing of George Harrison's death


Paul McCartney, from London

"I am devastated and very, very sad. He was a lovely guy and a very
brave man and had a wonderful sense of humor. He is really just my
baby
brother."


Ringo Starr

"George was a best friend of mine. I loved him very much and I will
miss him greatly. Both (wife) Barbara and I send our love and light
to
Olivia and Dhani. We will miss George for his sense of love, his
sense
of music and his sense of laughter."


George Martin, Beatles' record producer

"George was ... the kid who followed the others around. I guess
that
with talents like John and Paul, probably the greatest songwriters
of
the 20th century, it's tough opposition. They collaborated and
rivaled
each other in their writing. George had to do it by himself. He
worked away at it. ... He would craft his music meticulously, with
every little stitch in the canvas.... I like to think he's gone to
a
better place. I think he'll be all right there....he's going to be
happy now."


Yoko Ono

"His life was magical and we all felt we had shared a little bit of
it
by knowing him."


Sitar musician Ravi Shankar

"It was my sitar and Indian music which connected me to George in
the
beginning, but very soon our relationship went beyond that. He was
a
friend, disciple and son to me. George was a brave and beautiful
soul,
full of love, child-like humor and a deep spirituality."


Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys

"I am horribly saddened by the death of George Harrison. While we
were
not personal friends, I think that just like everybody in the world,
I
have always considered all the Beatles to be my friends. Their
arrival
in America in 1964 was electrifying, one of the most exciting things
that ever happened in my life, and their music has always and will
always mean so much to me."


Alan Williams, The Beatles' first manager

"He was a very lovable person. I would say he was the major cog in
The
Beatles at that time. He kept them together probably because of the
calming effect he had."


Bob Dylan, founded the Traveling Wilburys with Harrison

"George was a giant, a great, great soul, with all of the humanity,
all
of the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common
sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had
the
strength of a hundred men. He was like the sun, the flowers and the
moon and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly
emptier
place without him."


Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones lead singer

"I am very saddened by George's death and will miss him enormously. 
As
a guitarist, he invented many classic lines that were much copied by
others and he wrote several very beautiful songs that we will always
remember."


Keith Richards, Rolling Stones guitarist

"To me, George was, always will be, above all, a real gentleman, in
the
full meaning of the word. We both felt we held similar positions in
our
respective bands, which formed a special knowing bond between us.
Let's hope he's jamming with John."


Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

"He will certainly be missed, and his music will live on forever. 
My
only regret about the situation apart from my personal feelings
toward
him and his family is wondering what other songs were in his mind
that
we will never get to hear."


'Godfather of Soul' James Brown

"George Harrison was one of the world's few good men, one of the
better
people I ever met. I will and the world will miss him. He was
truly
loved."


Alan Clayson, Harrison's biographer

"He triumphed, because on their final album his songs were the
highlight."


British Prime Minister Tony Blair

"I think people will be very sad at his death. I think it is worth
of
pointing out that he was not only a great musician and artist, but
he
did an immense amount for charity as well and so he will be very,
very
sadly missed by people right round the world."



Lord Mayor Gerry Scott of Liverpool, England

"George Harrison was one of the great Liverpudlians. He was a warm,
peace-loving man who was much more than just a talented musician."


Mike Storey, council leader, Liverpool, England

"Everyone who knew of George Harrison knew he was a true Scouser who
never forgot his roots. He was a great ambassador for the city."


John Chambers, Liverpool Beatles Appreciation Society

"Until now there has always been the hope of a reunion, perhaps with
Julian Lennon standing in for his dad. It really is the end of a
great deal."


Bob Geldof, musician, activist

"He wasn't a reluctant Beatle. He knew that his place in popular
culture was absolutely secure."


Tom Jones, singer

"He was lovely man. He was unassuming, quiet, great musician. Just
a
lovely man."


David Byrne, lead singer, Talking Heads

"I was growing up in Baltimore at the time and I went out to see
Ravi
Shankar when he came to town and I know I wouldn't have if it wasn't
for George Harrison and the Beatles being involved."


Michael Palin, of Monty Python's Flying Circus

"He had this inner energy which was there even if he was quite tired
--
there would be this tremendous energy. And he was a great talker,
this
man who was supposed to be the quiet Beatle but never stopped
talking
when I was there. He was full of ideas, and takes on things."


Fan drawn to Abbey Road

"I'll light a candle, say a little prayer," said one teary-eyed fan
drawn
magnetically after Harrison's death to Abbey Road, site of the
studio where
The Beatles cut pop history.


Kym Freedman, 17, Henley-on-Thames, England

My "guitar will gently weep forever." Freedman, who considers
Harrison
a "big idol," was one of many fans and neighbors bringing bouquets
and
cards to Harrison's Victorian mansion west of London.

From the msnbc piece:

As for death, there are likely few Western celebrities better
prepared to face it. Though he often described this world as being
illusory, and was aware as few people are of the burdens of effecting
change in it - who else sees friends murdered or gets stabbed just
for writing songs? - he gave greatly and freely to the rest of us,
while still following the spiritual path he saw set before him. 
Unless he indeed forgot to put the cat out, he exits this life with
few things left undone.

Maharishi : From a Dutch source translated into English

"Not long before his death George Harrison paid a visit to the
Maharishi
in Vlodrop, Holland. During this last visit Maharishi tried to give
George
courage and hope. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the Maharishi
movement in Holland. "Maharishi compared the sick body of Harrison
with an
old coat with holes. He said he was glad that Harrison would soon
take off
that coat and put on a new one". The spokesman also said that Paul
McCartney is a regular visitor at Maharishi's. "Maharishi has always
had a
special place in his heart for the Beatles since their first meeting
in
1967. That friendship has never ceased."

Remembering George Harrison
By RAVI SHANKAR

ENCINITAS, Calif. -- I feel I have been cheated by George. Why did
he
have to go so soon at such a young age when I really wanted to go
first?

In moments like this, it is so hard to express the feeling of
emptiness
and sadness within. Like a film flashing by, everything comes to my
mind
since I met him more than 30 years ago. His childlike quality, his
shy but
naughty little smile, his passion for all the music he loved and the
serious quest for religion, particularly the old Vedic Hindu
tradition,
always amazed me as well as attracted me.

The down-to-earth quality in George was something I could relate to
with
such joy. He would crack up when I told him all my jokes; we had such
fun!
We always competed with each other in punning. When I told him that I
was
known as a "pundit" because of my punning, he said something
hilarious,
connecting the old Hindu scriptures of the four Vedas (Rigveda,
Samveda,
Atharvaveda and Yajurveda). He said: "Do you know the four Wether
brothers? They are Ric, Sam, Arthur and George Wethers."

The only solid lessons on sitar he had from me were in the summer
and
autumn of 1966, which he couldn't pursue as much as we both wanted.
He was
very talented and would have become a great sitar player if only he
could
have given some time. His love, knowledge and understanding of Indian
music developed immensely over the years. I gave him a copy of the
book
"Autobiography of a Yogi" by Swami Yogananda, and my brother,
Rajendra,
gave him a book by Swami Vivekananda. He had such thirst for the
knowledge
and wisdom of Indian traditions. In many ways he was more Indian than
many
Indians.

Though I had been performing all over the world since 1954, my
association with George attracted a whole young generation to sitar
and to
me from the mid- 1960's. Even though I didn't make any records
jamming
with him or any other pop or rock star, I was treated like a
superstar,
being the Beatle George's guru. Then came Monterey, Woodstock and
finally
the big Bangladesh concert, which he totally handled in producing.
Because
of George we had Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell and other
eminent
musicians.

After a year or so, when he spent time with me in Varanasi at my
house,
he suggested we make a couple of records and perhaps tour the United
States. We did the first recording in the A&M Studios for his Dark
Horse
label. It was then that he met dear Olivia (whom he married in 1978).
In
the summer of 1974 the second album was recorded ("Festival of
India") at
his own studio. I'll never forget those couple of months when we
worked on
this album. I did all the compositions on the M4 while traveling from
London to his home in Henley.

George created such an atmosphere with such love and regard. We
would
start rehearsals in a beautiful large hall with a view to his lovely
garden. We would have Indian food and snack between rehearsals.

The recording was finished with simultaneous editing, which George
was
doing himself, always asking me to hear when he was satisfied. After
this
period of creative joy we went to tour the United States, giving more
than
30 performances. George had a special 737 Boeing jetliner completely
refurbished for us to travel in.

What touched me so much was his worry about my health and well
being. He
would tell me always not to travel and exert myself so much. Then
from the
role of disciple and friend he became more of a son to me, especially
after my own son Shubho died in 1992. He would fly and be with me
whenever
I was in the hospital or not well with my heart problems. His love
and
concern touched me deeply.

I'll never forget how much love, care and time he gave to another
project
he did for me while staying in our house here in Encinitas. He went
through all the details, right from choosing all the artwork, to
writing
the notes, to producing the four-CD boxed set "In Celebration,"
selections
from my 40 years of sitar performances and compositions. The last
wonderful musical experience I had with him was when we made the CD
"Chants of India." We did some songs in Madras and the major part at
his
own studio in his mansion at Henley. His nearness and attention in
producing the record always inspired me so. Even the complex
compositions
came out of me so spontaneously.

Another one of many funny incidents was when George, Olivia and
their
son, Dhani, came to India in 1995 and spent a few weeks. We went to
Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. In Bombay, Delhi and Calcutta people
recognized George and created a stampede, which George hated. But we
had
no such problem in Rajasthan and he enjoyed it so much. On our last
stop,
Udaipur, while we were walking in the busy main streets shopping -
ornaments of silver, colourful materials, dresses, turbans, having
tea and
snacks - all of a sudden there was a big crowd which surrounded us. I
was
terrified thinking they had recognized George, but it was actually me
they
were after. Then the funniest thing happened. George, realizing the
situation, immediately became my bodyguard. "Move, move. No, no.
Don't
bother Panditji." And cordoning me with both his hands, he brought me
to
our waiting car and saved me from those autograph hunters. The others
were
already seated, and when the car started, we burst out laughing.

My daughter Anoushka and my wife, Sukanya, also were so attached to
him.
He had a beautiful and loving wife in Olivia and a wonderful son in
Dhani.
He had a magnanimous heart and always cared so much. He was a
fearless and
beautiful soul always conscious of God. I loved him dearly. Though he
is
gone physically, he will always be alive and vibrant in my heart.

Jorma Kaukonen on George Harrison

When the Beatles exploded into the American and world music scene
back in the
early Sixties, I had totally immersed myself in traditional music
and had
eschewed all things vaguely electric or 'popular.' When I think
about what a
stuffed shirt I was then I really have to laugh today. Anyway, my
friend
Steve Mann came up from L.A. to visit me in Santa Clara and
convinced me
that one of the sugar cubes he had in his pocket would really open
my world
as a musician. Steve was such an innovative musician and so far
ahead of his
time that I accepted his recommendation as gospel and we each ate
one. Well,
needless to say I was totally unprepared for what followed and at
some point
a couple of hours later we had to go for a ride with a friend in a
borrowed
VW. We're driving somewhere on Highway 101 near Sunnyvale,
California and a
semi pulls up behind me filling the rear window with it's bumper and
grill.
Now, in retrospect, we were probably only going 20 miles an hour in
rush hour
but still it really scared the shit out of me. As I was
contemplating my
impending death and possibly the end of the world, we turned on the
radio and
as the tubes warmed up (remember tubes in car radios) the first
thing I heard
was George's solo in 'She's A Woman' and it changed my life! Not
only did it
get me through that moment of fear on the freeway, but it opened my
eyes to
more things than I can enumerate here. It prepared me to be, at
least
moderately, open to Paul Kantner's suggestion that I join some band
that he
was forming up in San Francisco. In that moment, the electric
guitar became
a real instrument for me again.

I met George once a long time ago... I do not even remember when. 
I did not
know him but of course as a man of my time I was always interested
in what he
was up to. He was immensely successful, but he and his family
suffered all
the things that can afflict 'normal' mortals. As I grew older, I
came to
appreciate more and more the huge contribution that he and his
friends made
to our world. I know that he had been ill for some time. As one
who lives
in some small way in the public eye, I admired the way he handled
his
privacy... the way he loved his family. I know that he is in a
better place.
(I always say that when someone dies, but I believe it.) He is all
right now
and my prayers are with his family.

I thank George for helping to open my heart!

Compact Disc Land presents
A Celebration of the life of George Harrison
featuring the music of George Harrison and the Beatles

Appearing in concert, playing the music of George and the Beatles:
The New Moondogs with special guest Cyril Jordan...
of the Flamin' Groovies, of course!

Where: Compact Disc Land
477 University Avenue
Palo Alto
650-324-3563
When: Sunday Dec. 16
First set-acoustic @5:00 p.m.
Second set-electric @7:30 p.m.
Admission: Free

Please bring canned food donations for the Second Harvest food bank


After George Harrison passed away, people continually asked me if I
knew of any kind of celebration of what George Harrison did, what
he
meant to us and whathe gave us. I refrain from using the term
memorial
or tribute, only because what he did should truly be celebrated.
For
anyone who wants to, Sunday will be a nice moment to do
that-celebrate
the gifts we received from George Harrison.

The Flamin' Groovies were a Bay Area institution from 1966 through
to
1990, and they wore their Beatles influences on their sleeves; the
Groovies included 3 Beatles tracks on their lp's during their Sire
Records period. So no Bay Area person is more appropriate to help
us
in our appreciation of George than Cyril Jordan, guitarist,
songwriter
and vocalist for the Flamin' Groovies. Cyril will be joining the
New
Moondogs- for Beatles fans, an update of the name of an early
incarnation of the Beatles, the Moondogs. The New Moondogs include
Bob
Vickers, formerly of the Orange Peels, switching between lead and
rhythm guitar as well as lead and backing vocal duties. Expect
guests
from the Syndicate of Sound and Chocolate Watchband to drop by for
a
song or two as well.



WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 19 2001
THE RENSE RETORT, by Rip Rense
-----------------------------------------------

Meeting George
-----------------------------------------------

WorldNetDaily News Archives: Rip Rense

The first time I saw George Harrison was in 1979, in Burbank, Calif.

There was a little press conference at Warner Brothers Records for
the
release of his lovely eponymous album, and I was one of about 30
reporters
present, clustered around in a half circle on the floor.

He had walked in with a cane, the result of a gardening accident,
and
remarked that no one had touched the small mountain of scones on a
nearby
table, or helped themselves to tea. Scones and tea? Everyone was far
too
amazed to eat. He was, after all, one of them.

Harrison answered the usual array of silly questions, and was
patient,
self-deprecating, soft-spoken, even kindly. When a young woman
reporter
asked, wide-eyed and breathless, "George, what are you trying to
teach us,"
he chuckled and muttered, "I guess I'm looking for somebody to teach
me a few
things."

It was jarring, to say the least, looking into that face that I'd
seen so
many times, hearing that voice that I'd heard so many times, singing
words
that I'd long since committed to memory. Yet, there he was,
disarming and
down-to-earth, asking, in all sincerity, why people hadn't enjoyed
the free
scones.

Oddly, no one followed up on the breathless reporter's question - so
I did,
on the way out. I pushed through the mass of microphone-sprouting
arms,
sidled up beside him and said, "You said you're looking for someone
to teach
you a few things - like what?" Harrison's answer was deadpan, but
had a ring
of truth:

"Like how to stop smoking."

How sadly prophetic those words now seem, since he has fallen victim
to lung
cancer.

The second time I encountered Harrison was in 1987, when he was
promoting his
album, "Cloud Nine," also at Warner Records in Burbank. This time, I
had a
little over an hour with him - alone. As a dedicated appreciator of
his music
and words, this was unimaginable.

I have never prepared more for an interview - and I don't mean
research. None
was required. What I needed to do was wrench and pry myself into
"work" mode,
and squelch all gawking - else I would have simply babbled. (A lot
of
reporters in my generation have this same problem.)

Yet Harrison put me at quickly at ease, and spoke at thoughtful
length in
response to every question. He'd probably done a dozen interviews
since
morning, so perhaps he was recycling. Yet, when I read other
articles from
interviews conducted the same day, the answers were very different.
The man
had not merely repeated himself from reporter to reporter.

One question I remember asking was about the exquisitely affecting
guitar
solo on "Something," and where it had come from. He laughed, and
joked:

"Oh, I guess I must have smoked something."

Of course, it turns out that whether he smoked something or not, he
had
worked diligently on that solo (as he did crafting all of his
music.) It had
grown out of a discarded vocal bridge in the song, and had been
honed
artfully over days before he executed it during a live orchestral
overdub, in
order to invest it with as much feeling as possible. That's the kind
of
musician he was.

The last time I saw Harrison was in March of 2000. I went out to buy
a new
pair of shoes, one Wednesday, at the Santa Monica Place mall. It was
around
1:30 in the afternoon, and almost empty, as I stepped onto an
escalator
behind two guys. I rode up one flight and turned for the next level,
when
something peripherally caught my eye. One of the two guys in front
had a
familiar profile, hidden by sunglasses, but was it? I looked again.

Then I heard an unmistakable voice speaking one word, "OK."

It was George, all right. He looked good. His hair was about early
Beatles
length, and salt-and-pepper. Seeing as he'd been fighting cancer,
and had
nearly been stabbed to death by a lunatic just three months earlier,
I was
floored. I was doubly floored by the fact that I'd run into him.
What were
the chances of crossing paths with the guy? Especially when all the
press
reports had him in seclusion, recovering from his near fatal
assault? The
cosmic cliche came to mind: Was this meant to be?

I had a proper excuse for saying hello, seeing as I'd interviewed
him twice -
once for a cover story in a prominent music magazine. And there was
nothing I
wanted to do more than introduce myself, tell him how great it was
to see him
well, and that I looked forward to new music.

But as I watched him scanning the mall, in search of what turned out
to be an
India imports store, I got to thinking that the last thing in the
world this
man wanted was to be bothered by a stranger. Especially considering
the
horrific intrusion he had just suffered.

The decision came easily.

In that small moment, I gave George Harrison the one thing he most
coveted in
day-to-day life: privacy.

What a privilege.

An appreciation from a man who peed with the Quiet One.

By Bill Holdship

George Harrison is probably bemused by all the attention his passing
received
in the material world this past week. Most of the tributes have
concentrated
on the "quiet Beatle" thing, emphasizing his spirituality,
humanitarianism,
subtle-but-brilliant musicianship, and the quiet dignity he always
so
beautifully displayed. In retrospect, he may have been the only
living ex-
Beatle never to embarrass himself or us. And take it from someone
who saw
that much-maligned 1974 tour as a fan, not a critic: It was
terrific, much
better than McCartney's first two U.S. tours.

All this concentration on the serious side of his personality,
however, often
misses the man's warmth and great sense of humor. I was fortunate
enough to
have two encounters with Harrison over the past 15 years, first
interviewing
him for Creem magazine in 1987. As a child, I had recurring dreams
that the
Beatles actually lived on my street and were playmates (probably a
result of
that Saturday morning cartoon series) -- so you can imagine the
devastating
impact it would have had, even on an adult, if George Harrison had
turned out
to be a dick. And a Beatle could obviously get away with being
arrogant. But
Harrison was a total sweetheart, everything you would want a former
Beatle to
be -- charming, warm, personable and hilariously funny. In fact, one
of my
most vivid memories of that afternoon is his hearty and genuine
laugh, always
delivered with a huge twinkle in his eye. "I saved you the big
attack on
everybody," he said, before dissing a few folks who deserved it,
later adding
"if you put this in the interview, you can say I'm smiling about it.
I'm not
letting it depress me."

He strolled into the interview by himself, no entourage or handlers,
immediately acknowledging, without prompting, my co-editor, whom
he'd met
more than six months before backstage at the Palace. "See, I told
you we'd
make this happen," he grinned.

Harrison had grown very comfortable with his Beatles legacy by this
point,
but he still had hilarious stories to tell about Elvis and the Fabs'
psychedelic years, as well as pointed comments to make about Dick
Clark, the
music business, and even Madonna, whom he'd recently worked with,
producing
Shanghai Surprise, the flop (the only one in Harrison's
film-producing
career) she co-starred in with then-husband Sean Penn.

"The thing is, you see, people get famous for a bit, and this is why
the
Beatles were good," he said. "We had the four of us -- if one of us
would
start to get snooty or bigheaded, we'd just broadside him. But then
you have
these other people who get famous and they suddenly start thinking
they're
God's gift to mankind. When really all they are is a silly pop star.
There's
much more to life than just been a famous pop star. Unfortunately, a
lot of
them fall into the trap. They get surrounded by people saying how
fab they
are, all these sycophants. You have to see it from the other side,
too --
which is that the pressure you're under when you're fab is
tremendous. It
sometimes does get you crazy when you can't do anything because
everybody's
bugging you and shooting cameras in your face. So I can sympathize
from that
point of view, too. But all Madonna needs is 500 milligrams of some
good
LSD."

My second experience with Harrison was a bit cruder, but just as
telling. It
was at a 1990 record-release party for Ringo Starr at West
Hollywood's Bar
One, where a small group of gentlemen were suddenly astonished to
find
themselves in line for the men's room with a former Beatles
guitarist.
Noticing the fashion trend so popular among the follicle-challenged
in the
music biz at that time, George turned to the gent behind him and
laughed, "Do
you need a ponytail in this town to take a leak?" To this day, there
are
several guys walking around L.A. who still proudly boast that they
"peed with
George Harrison!" You just know Axl Rose would have had his thugs
clear the
joint, if he'd ever needed to use a public restroom at all.

During that 1987 interview, Harrison talked about Elvis and Lennon
as though
they were both spiritually still here. He also addressed death:
"Death is
just where your suit falls off and now you're in your other suit.
You can't
see it on this level, but it's all right. Don't worry." And he
claimed to
absolutely believe in reincarnation, adding that "and half those
people [in
the record industry] are going to be reincarnated getting one cent
on every
CD they sell, and sell more records than everybody, and then not
receive any
of the money."

I loved George Harrison. And I truly believe that those who never
got to
experience the Beatles first-hand missed out on what it was to have
real
musical and cultural heroes. It's one thing to mourn his death. But
what
we're really mourning is the fact that the world was a far better
(and
funnier) place when the Beatles were still in it. Harrison himself
never
seemed to fear moving on. As his friend Bob Dylan remarked after
hearing the
news: "He was like the sun, the flowers, and the moon -- and we will
miss him
enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him."





A letter from Natalie Merchant http://www.nataliemerchant.com

November 30, 2001
Las Vegas, Nevada

Dear Web Site Visitor,

I woke up today to the news that George Harrison had died, that he
had lost
the battle he had been fighting against cancer for several years.
The sadness
that I feel over his death is very different from the reaction I had
when the
news of John Lennon's death was received. Mr. Harrison's passing was
natural,
premature, but not so sudden and horrible as Mr. Lennon's murder.
The world
has lost a cultural icon, an exceptional musician, a sweet man and
with his
death there is powerful realization that time is not standing still
for any
of us.

For nearly 40 years we have had the phenomenon of the Beatles with
which to
measure the time of our lives, now we will add another member's
death as a
sad point of reference. I was born the year that the band released
their
first single, I joined my first band the year that John was killed,
I'm sure
that I will remember his death today along with other events that it
parallels...waking up in a desert casino to more terrorism and
bombing.

Whenever I witness the death of someone or something it is a lesson
in the
fragility of life, a reminder of the temporal state of all things. I
can only
guess that George Harrison had a deeper understanding of that
concept than
most of us. Those of us who listened to his music and vicariously
followed
his search for meaning learned a great deal from him. He introduced
me to the
musical tradition and philosophy of an exotic culture...India. He
staged the
first large scale benefit concert for the starving people of
Bangladesh and
started an independent music label to promote artists he admired. He
accepted
his wealth and fame with grace and generosity.

I've always thought of George as the secret weapon in the Beatles.
His guitar
work and songwriting are both understated as contributions compared
to the
titan songwriters Lennon/McCartney. But when I look over the list of
his song
credits, it is impressive and contains some of my
favorites..."Something",
"If I Needed Someone", "Here Comes The Sun", "While My Guitar Gently
Weeps",
"I Need You". We started the show tonight by playing 4 of George's
songs and
finished the night with "My Sweet Lord". It was a beautiful way for
all of us
in the band to celebrate his life more than to mourn his passing. As
long as
people continue to sing his songs he has the promise of immortality.

Take Care,
Natalie

Songs that make you think of phonographs

While listening to the album <i>The Beatles</i> (a.k.a. the White
Album), hearing the song "Martha My Dear", I suddenly imagined the
single spinning on the record player.

The only other song I've ever heard on a CD player that made me
imagine I was hearing it on a 45 single was "One Year Of Love" by
Queen.

I wonder what quality of a song would make me imagine the single
actually spinning on a turntable?

first of all, i got the picture from the Kenneth Branagh compendium,
i'll find out the exact website and the name of the pic in a minuite
and put a link in here...but i have to just say, I went to riii
today!!!! it was the best thing I have ever seen, personally. I
enjoyed every moment of it, and i really wish i was going to see it
again- i told my mum to get some more tickets! but perhaps thats a
bit unfair seen as so many people want to see it and I think they are
all sold out. 

I apsolutely loved the way he turned from innoscent to wicked in a
mater of seconds, even before the character he had been talking to
was off the stage... and his reaction after he had just woed Anne,
that was one of the best changes. An amazing actor.

...And I have his signature! that has really made my day, my week,
and I would go as far to say the next few years of my life!

I have photos of him outside the stage door, unfortunately in the
photo with him and us on, he did not have his arm around me, because
there were three of us, and my mum and Auntie were already stood next
to him, and he only has two arms...shame...but he signed my riii
book!!! sorry, i cant stop thinking about it, I got back this evening
and I have just been looking at my signed book, the pen he wrote with
(slightly sad I know, but, well I cant just forget which pen it was)
my A2 poster (sorry they didnt have them in when you went Karen) my
post card, my programme and my camera with the photos in!

I'll stop going on about that now, I'll tell you how we bumped into
him (not literally- i wish!) We got there really early because we
were eating in Shefield and we found the Crucible. As we walked up to
it, there was a huge sign saying "Stage Door" (well, I thought it was
pretty big considering I didn't expect it to be just onto the street)
and there were people there (i'd say about 7 or so- i didnt count)
and we noticed they had pens and cameras and books! at first we didnt
really beleive what we were seeing but then someone said that Kenneth
Branagh was due to arrive. This was about 11:30 I think. We were
wondering whether he was really going to come, but I got my riii book
out and my mum and auntie followed suit. then a few seconds after a
black rangerover went round the corner, he was there! we went up and
asked for signatures, and he signed everyone's books and then my mum
said: (I quote)
"Would a photograph be too much of an imposition?" and he said:
"Not at all." then we got some photos. I couln't beleive there was
only about 10 people there, and it was so lucky we were just passing,
if we had come any later we'd have missed him, and any earlier we'd
have walked off.

I might be going on about things that no one but me finds
interesting, but I thought I'd mention it! I still can't beleive he
just walked round the corner, and he was just there- i stood next to
him! WOW! I'm still in shock... I'll go now cos I'll start repeating
what I've already said, I'll go find that website and the picture.

I didn't see anything on the page you gave, but I did find this bit
about Renee talking about the sequel in last weeks's <a
href="http://www.eonline.com/Gossip/Awful/Archive2002/020328f.html">The
Awful Truth:

<i>"Renée Zellweger, looking very grown up (and very un-Bridget Jones
in her too-together Carolina Herrera strapless satin), announced:
"You guys are crazy!" I think the purty Texan had finally had enough
of the on-the-record roundup, which included, interestingly enough,
eager proclamations to do the Jones sequel, something she had not
been as hyped about last time we chatted, thanks to cold 'n' dreary
London weather."</i>

Could that possibly be it?

===================
South Sister, US
===================
Steady uplift of W flank of Oregon's South Sister continues

Following is from:
http://vulcan.wr.usgs.gov/Volcanoes/Sisters/WestUplift/information_18march20

02.html

As of March 2002, the steady, slow uplift of an area of the W
flank/base of
South Sister continues, at the rate of one inch/year maximum (~2.5
cm/year).
Spring water collected in late Summer 2001 shows a possible magmatic
origin
of carbon and helium. Seismicity remains low. It is thought that
magma is
slowly accumulating at 6-7km depth.

================
Etna, Italy
================
Etna Update

Following last Summer's flank eruption, Etna has been relatively
quiet. On
9 March ash emissions resumed at Bocca Nuova, and on 25 March from
the NE
Crater. No incandescence has been visible and it is supposed that
these
emissions are due to collapses of conduit walls primarily. However,
ash
from the NE Crater is darker and may perhaps originate from degassing
magma
at some depth.

From: http://www.geo.mtu.edu/~boris/ETNA_news.html

"3 April 2002 update. Over the Easter weekend and through 2 April ash
emission continued without interruptions from the Bocca Nuova, while
at the
Northeast Crater it had apparently stopped. Light ash falls occurred
in
downwind areas, at times extending as far as Catania. The emissions
formed
billowing brown plumes which at times rose several hundred meters
above the
summit. No incandescence has been seen so far at night. Extremely bad
weather has prevented observations since the afternoon of 2 April.
Ash emission began on 9 March at the Bocca Nuova and on 25 March at
the
Northeast Crater, marking the first significant visible activity at
the
summit craters since the end of the July-August 2001 eruption.
However, it
seems that no fresh magma has reached the surface so far, although
the ash
from the Northeast Crater was distinctly darker than that emitted
from the
Bocca Nuova, and might have been derived from degassing magma at
depth
within the conduit."

=========================
Miyake-jima, Japan
=========================
Miyake-jima update, Eruptions continue in 2002

As of 1 April, Japan's Miyake-jima continues to erupt and discharge
significant quantites of SO2 gas from the summit pit crater (at the
rate of
10, - 20,000 tonnes/day) Small eruptions continue to occur at this
volcano.
In 2002, eruptions were noted on 23 Jan, 21 Feb and 2 & 31 Mar. Below
is a

Merrie Monarch competition is held in our tennis stadium and the
seats are both backless and HARD. No one local goes there if they
can hslp it. Especially if it is extrememly crowded (as this is) and
of great duration (6 hours tonight - at the very least.) So, from
the comfort of my living room (and far more accessible bathroom
facilities) I will be watching. However, I did think of being there
for you to look for me as in "Where's Waldo." Tonight is the
beautiful costumes, the familiar Hawaiian music, and exquisite
flowers freshly picked from our forests. Each dancer picks her own
while chanting special thanks to the gods and godesses from whose
territory they are taking them.

You will also discover your computer video player will go blank from
about 8-8:30 pm Hawaiian time. This is because they send the
transmission back to Honolulu studios for the news. Usually it
occurs at 10 pm but all times are contingent to what is happening at
the Festival this weekend. A hui ho !

Rob, there is something about field station dinge that adds to the
ambience of the whole adventure. Ours are not much better. In fact,
anyone who has stayed in Magma House (for the extended field camps of
student volcanologists and interns), it is part of the whole
experience. I just love the name of the place. All it has for
creature comforts is stacked bunks on which you place your bedrolls
or sleeping bags. It is not luxurious, but it sure beats the
conditions of field camp out at the eruptions. I'll dig up the ones
of my son at Pu'u O'o when it was actively founting and was the main
vent on the current flank eruption.
