I'm sad about this peaceful, spiritual man leaving us. At least he is out of this hell.

Works for me. I am BUMMED about George. I saw the Beatles 3 times once each in '65, '66 and '67. They change my life--for one thing when the Ravi Shankar association happened and everyone was burning incense--my Mom used to think I was smoking pot--but I didn't know what that was then--now LATER was something else. Don't mind me I'm just reminiscing(sigh).See you on another thread.

Artist, I need to grieve with you...

sitting here listening to his music... and wishing he was still with us... guess the only thing to do is to carry on his spirit. Going to meditation group tonight for support...

Was only a toddler in 65, now wish I had been a little older to have experienced all that.

I gotta reminisce also....

I was in love with George Harrison from the moment I saw him on Ed Sullivans's show in '64. When they came to Cleveland, I sent in dozens of postcards hoping to get picked from a mess of thousands of them. So many wanted tickets that they had to pick them from postcards sent in... needless to say, they didn't pick mine and I cried. I think I was like 14 or 15 when I first saw them. My girlfriends and I had our favorites, and mine was George. I loved his quiet good looks, his bashful smile, and I loved his music that he wrote and the songs he sung. He was a genius with the guitar.

The night they performed in Cleveland, I met with all my girlfriends and listened to their music and cried because we werent there. I collected everything of the Beatles, but I dreamt of George, and I even wrote him a letter! Telling him he was really missing alot by not coming to my town and meeting me because I really liked him, and all these other chicks just liked him because he was a Beatle!! Ha, what a mopey teenager! Yeah, he wanted to hook up with a 14 year old I'm sure!

He was great, he was spiritual, he was a good person. I admired his individuality that he strove to keep. I think the world has lost one of it's great peaceful souls who tried to use his music and his name to spread that peace. I'm so thankful I have such great memories of those 60's and those Beatles...God bless him.

Another reason to hate Yoko, she broke up John's first marriage. But,hey, they couldn't possibly stay married once they got so popular worldwide. It was doomed. I remember hating all the chicks who dated and married each and every one of them! LOL...I felt I was a better catch...that just cracks me up all those years later. Never saw them live either.

Was supposed to do Woodstock, but backed out at the last minute. Glad I didn't go and wish I would have, for various reasons.

I never liked Linda Eastman either when she married Paul, but felt so bad when she died after all those years of marriage and kids and all. Now I don't like his new chickie....some things never change! And I'm supposedly all grown up. Hmmmm...

Now ladies, down, down. Don't get your panties in a bunch. Remember, John(and all of them) chose to live their lives their way and with whom they saw fit.
I always believed that if I could just get close enough to one of the Beatles(hopefully John) he would fall madly and passionately in love with me :)(SIGH)
The Beatles first performance in America on the Ed Sullivan show was on my 14th birthday. I was absolutely sure there was some mystical connection between me and them.
My first time seeing them in person was in 1965 at the old Palace Theatre in N.Y.C.
Anyway, who knows what there lives (or ours for that matter) would be like if any of us had gotten the chance to get as close as we wanted.
Maybe we would have done a better job of loving them than their various wives and lovers--maybe not. As we all know, some men can be tough to live with even those who change the world--so something to chew on.
Remember, truly, all things must pass.

Good point Artist, they chose the women. But if I had to live my life with a man who was tough to live with I'd rather it had been George or Paul.
What a ride that would have been....
Yeah, I thought the same thing, here I am, just come find me and I'll make you happy....like I said, I get a good laugh out of it now. Someone on the news was asked what it was about the Beatles that grabbed so many of us young girls at the time and I had to think about that. It was right before the sexual revolution of the 60's, a sort of "pre" revolt by pissing off our parents with their hair and their music and their English accents....I know my parents just looked at me looking at them and playing their music over and over and crying (ye God) and they just shook their heads trying to figure out what got into their normally normal daughter. It was an innocent love for me, the last blast of innocent puppy love before the revolution and we were all thrusted into it,
"Hair", Woodstock, Leary, the whole turnover of the generation... yep, all things must pass....and it's a good thing...

Blondie, I didn't think they were married yet, but maybe so, he and I just kinda lost touch..... 🙂

But yeah, I know she only has one leg, she was a model too...I think she still is....another activist of some kind, some cause, I'm not sure of that either.

UGH! Yoko's face always looked like it had been "blasted" by something...I thought you were supposed to look BETTER after a peel??
I think he hooked up with her because he was strange and could have anything and anyone he wanted and she was toooooo strange and intriguing and he thought it would be fun...ya know? Like another high of some kind since he had already tried most drugs.
Or maybe....she was just a reaaaly nice person and we're just being bitches???...............NAH!!!!!
