    If that was only George in the sock (Did I just say that!)

    And I always thought the Red Hot Chili Peppers invented that look!

    George played with Deep Purple that night on stage playing guitar on Lucille using Richie Blackmore’s Strat. If you listen to it, he has a bit of a hard time because Blackmore’s guitar has a scalloped neck which George prbably never played before.

    Naughty boys! LOL
    I wish me rather George (without) with the sock! *blushes and hides*

  5. Markzapp says:

    George looks more like Keith Richards here than he looks like George. The photo looks distorted.

  6. BLJ says:

    I agree with Markzapp, that looks looks more like Keith than George. Even the hair is different. Are your sure that is George?

  7. Alice says:

    Yes, George does look like Keith Richard here. But if George was present at that concert (I presume Keith wasn’t) it must be him! Actually there are quite a few photos in which George and Keith look very similar.

    What I can recall from the story (and please correct me if I’m wrong) George was introduced at that concert as ‘Arnold of Liverpool’ and he joined the band in a rendition of ‘Lucille’. There is another photo (floating about out there somewhere) of George playing on stage with the band. I hope this info is correct & helpful.

  9. Markzapp says:

    I have a photo of George on stage with them. I’ll send it to Greg, pronto.

  10. Ishie says:

    Thanks Mark for the photo follow-up!

    George was hysterical! LOL! What a great sense of humor he had!

    venue was the Sydney Entertainment Centre that had opened earlier that year (84). Same venue where Paul performed three concerts in March 1993 (where I witnessed Paul from 4th row dead centre)
