    George: “Serve”
    Bob: “You gotta serve yerself”

  2. Kwai Chang says:

    “George…you look like A.J. Weberman”

  3. Louise says:

    Isn’t it odd to see what people used to wear to play tennis? I mean, how can you move quickly in jeans? Of course now we’ve gone to the other extreme, spending ridiculous amounts on “proper” tennis clothes.

  4. Michael says:

    Can’t really picture George in tennis gear with the hair and beard. Now THAT would be an odd picture! Fantastic pix, tho’. Tammy, how DO you do it???!!!

  5. Leah says:

    Oh, I didn’t look down far enough. This photo is the best photo ever. But that cannot be tennis.

  6. Leah says:

    And it’s Isle of Wight but that’s hardly an issue here.

  7. Mark says:

    They look like the old-style wooden racquets you can see in the repeats of ’60s/’70s Wimbeldon matches. So I’m pretty sure it’s Tennis, Leah.

  8. Kwai Chang says:

    I’d have you anytime is such a great tune…
    (why weren’t there more?)

  9. Chelsea says:

    Michael, I think Tammy got this picture from the new RS article. :) It’s one of the pictures included in the book that’ll accompany the Scorsese documentary.

    Can someone tell me why Bob Dylan was not at the concert for George all those years ago ?
    His absence stood out and never knew why.

  11. Leah says:

    Not quite sure Alex, but I’ve also wondered why. I did come across an interview with Dylan where he mentions that he didn’t want to be involved because he was still a little depressed about it. Also because he felt like George wouldn’t have wanted the Concert for George.

    And I agree with that, but Eric Clapton has a great quote in the DVD stating that he knew George wouldn’t like it, but he should just suck it up because it’s not so much for George, but for himself.

  12. Leah says:

    depressed about it* being George’s death.

  13. Kwai Chang says:

    dylan was disgusted with the scene at IOW…
    (check aj weberman interview)

  14. Chelsea says:

    Hmm that’s interesting about the Concert for George. I think George would probably be uncomfortable with it, but he also would probably understand why his friends/family needed to do it for themselves.

    Dylan also won’t be featured in the Scorsese documentary … maybe for the same reason? Although I don’t think he’d be right that George wouldn’t have wanted it because I know George was compiling material in preparation for a film about his life.

  15. hey you says:

    yeah, olivia mentioned that george stated during the period of time of the anthology that he wanted to do something like that as well for his solo body of work.

    None of the Beatles ever dressed for season or for statement. I mean my God look at the “Abbey Road” cover shot. It’s 80 degrees on Aug 8th. All of them in long sleeves and jackets.
