    I am not at all surprised by anything in this photo. What a pimp!

  4. Julia says:

    Leah, you’re so right. There’s no mystery here, George is just chillin’ with his bitches.

  5. Kwai Chang says:

    “…hey honey, are you wearing sandals?”

  6. Leah says:

    He also has some pretty epic footwear on.

  7. Julia says:

    My favourite Hari footwear is a pair of embroidered sheepskin boots. There’s a photo in which he’s wearing them with a frilly purple shirt and a pair of pink and white striped trousers.

  8. Chelsea says:

    Julia, do you mean the boots he wore in the studio during Let it Be? In any case, I love those boots.

  9. Leah says:

    The ‘For You Blue’ boots! Bahaha, that man was all about style.

  10. Kwai Chang says:

  11. Julia says:

    Yep, those are the boots I’m talking about!

  12. Louise says:

    As usual, George looks irritated by the fans.

  13. Karen says:

    Hey–the one on the right is me!!


  14. Lizzie says:

    i believe those girls were part of the bikini crowd for mmt – i have a photo of the one on the right sitting next to paul in her bikini. she looks much happier in that photo! someone correct me if i’m wrong.

  15. Lizzie says:

    louise, i was a daily regular outside emi, cavendish avenue, apple, trident, or wherever they might be in london in the late 60’s and i don’t remember george being irritated by fans as usual like you said. i remember him as funny and nice. all of them had (as all of us mortals do) their good days and bad days. i wrote about their moods in my diaries. i was just reading one of them last night and george asked us “shouldn’t you be in church?” because it was a sunday and we were waiting for them at the studio where they edited magical mystery tour in soho. i wonder where you got that impression. please read the words to the song he wrote for our small group of fans, “apple scruffs”.

    APPLE SCRUFFS (George Harrison)

    Now I’ve watched you sitting there
    Seen the passers-by all stare
    Like you have no place to go
    But there’s so much they don’t know about Apple Scruffs

    You’ve been stood around for years
    Seen my smiles and touched my tears
    How it’s been a long, long time
    And how you’ve been on my mind, my Apple Scruffs

    Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
    How I love you, how I love you

    In the fog and in the rain
    Through the pleasures and the pain
    On the step outside you stand
    With your flowers in your hand, my Apple Scruffs

    While the years they come and go
    Now, your love must surely show me
    That beyond all time and space
    We’re together face to face, my Apple Scruffs

    Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
    How I love you, how I love you

  17. Lizzie says:

    i still get chills when i read this. if this is not love for his fans…

  18. BLJ says:

    Thanks Lizzie for sharing the song lyrics with us. Ringo said in his song tribute to George “every part of him was in his song”. And I believe it. Apple Scruffs is a good example.

  19. Louise says:

    There are lots of stories of George being downright rude to fans — not so much at the height of Beatle fame as post Beatles breakup.

  20. Leah says:

    I agree Lizzie, I don’t believe he was generally rude to his fans. I believe he just didn’t really understand why he got so much attention. To himself he wasn’t really all that important, to us he definitely was!

  21. Louise says:

    I like George’s general crabbiness. Even Olivia Harrison has talked about that being a defining characteristic of his. And this idea that he was Mr. Humble is rubbish. No one who got as much as attention as these four did could truly be called humble. And George had an ego just like the other 3. It’s his fans who seem to want to turn him into Saint George. As Peter Doggett’s book reported, George once chastised someone in Abbey Road who had questioned a decision by saying “You’re talking to a Beatle, you know.”

    Just because George found aspects of his fame to be irritating doesn’t mean he thought he didn’t deserve it, or that he didn’t enjoy all the privileges and money and came with fame.

  22. Bluesdude says:

    Until 1981, George regularly opened his door to fans who would come from all over the world and literally knock on his door upon which, in most cases, he would let them in, take pics, all of that. Kinfauns always had fans there. It wasn’t until John was murdered that all of that changed. George was the most private Beatle but he was, by far, the most accessable.

  23. BLJ says:

    No one said that George was a saint but from what most of the people said about him who really knew him, I get the impression he was a nice guy. Even his ex-wife ‘’Pattie Boyd’ said he was kind after their divorce, they remained friends. I only believe what I hear from his friends who knew him, not authors who embellish their books to get sells. Lots of these people didn’t know George or the other Beatles. From what I heard all the Beatles were kind to their fans especially John. I do believe George had his moments; he was human just like the rest of us.

    @Louise – And yes I do believe he was humble. And what I believe is not garbage! Try seeing the good in people, not dwelling on the negative. :)

    High-Five BLJ! I agree :)
