These pictures are really nice!I especially like the bottom picture.Both pictures are beautiful though.
Rutherford and Banks?
Awww. Who are the men in the photos? George appears to be in the cuddle-mood.
The second guy looks nothing like Tony Banks
I think before 1980 anyone could explore Friar Park so maybe these are fans. After John’s death Friar Park was closed to the public
I can’t imagine they were ever open to the public when George had it. It is his back garden after all.
On that note I hope the family leave it to the National Trust. I had a dream the other night that I was getting a tour!
I’m pretty sure these guys are Splinter – Bill Elliot and Bobby Purvis. George recorded at least one of their albums at Friar Park in the mid-’70s. They were the first artists signed to Dark Horse.
These guys don’t look anything like Splinter. Look up “Costafine Town” on Google and you’ll find plenty of photos of that single (which I have; not a bad tune at all).
This is kind of off-topic, but are you allowed to visit Friar Park? Or is it still off-limits?
The top picture is photographer Mike Salisbury with George, the bottom one is producer Rus Titelman with George. They were taken in 1978 at FPHOT while shooting the cover photo for “George Harrison.”
I’m in Australia and just watched Living in a Material World. How lucky are we that George Harrison walked this earth and left such a great legacy – his music lives on. Also his garden that he planted lives on. Just wish I could see it. Rest in peace George.
