A Lamp

In this excerpt from Rob Lowe’s autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends ©2011, a teenage Rob Lowe finds himself alone with Francis Ford Coppola and brings up the obvious: “Francis, I’m sure you hear this a lot, but Godfather was on in the hotel and we all watched it for the hundredth time. What …

Here. Now.

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”  ~George Harrison

The Angel in Him

“He said it was written about Julian, my child. He knew I was splitting with Cyn and leaving Julian. He was driving over to say hi to Julian. He’d been like an uncle to him. You know, Paul was always good with kids. And so he came up with Hey Jude. But I always heard …

Weeps

George Harrison, Jeff Lynn, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Ray Cooper, Elton John… The sad part is how many faces you saw reunite to perform this song at the Concert for George.

“No need to fear it…”

What I love about Ringo is that he doesn’t hide what he wants to say beneath layers of cryptic metaphors. It’s a certain courage you don’t find often. Anyway, this is a song about death that always lifts my spirits. Full lyrics HERE.

I really want to know You…

From Concert for George. At the end, Billy Preston turns and gives Ringo a thumbs up, and Ringo responds by holding his sticks high in the air.  They know they nailed it.

If you are big enough to take it…

George made this demo before handing it over to his friend Ringo. Ringo took out the “Hare Krishna!,” but otherwise left it pretty much the same.

A Restless Wind

I think the words stand nicely on their own but (to save you the trouble) here’s the song on YouTube:  LINK Across The Universe by John Lennon and Paul McCartney (mostly John) Words are flowing out Like endless rain into a paper cup They slither wildly as they slip away Across the universe Pools of …

Naked

Sound engineer Geoff Emerick writes in his book Here, There, and Everywhere that, in spite of being in one of the most successful music groups of all time, John Lennon was very insecure about his voice and was constantly looking for overdubs and fuzzy guitars to mask it. When Paul McCartney had the original tapes …

Don’t let her see a cloudy sky…

From The Fire Squire:   Today’s Georgetune is one highlighted recently on the LFG FB page, here’s the wonderful ‘Take Good Care of My Baby’ performed at the infamous Decca audition, and led by 18-year-old George doing his best Buddy/Elvis/Bobby impression – and crikey, he’s great. Based on this, I’m surprised Dick Rowe didn’t say “Well …

Everything I’ve got.

I think this contains some of John’s most emotional phrasing. He comes in just a bit late and speeds up to finish on time, and it really conveys weariness. Full lyrics HERE.
