"There was a profound experience that happened when he left his body. It was visible. Let’s just say, you wouldn’t… you wouldn’t need to light the room if you were trying to film it. You know, he, uh… He just… He just lit the room.” -Olivia Harrison
Scans - George Harrison through the years"There was never a time when you or I did not exist. Not will there be any future when we shall cease to be." - Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita (as quoted in the album information for Somewhere in England and Brainwashed)
In loving memory of a truly extraordinary, talented, complex and inspiring individual who influences so many, and whose music has the power to touch us and to bring such happiness. The material world is far emptier without him, his music, personality, compassion, humility and smile… but as long as we listen, George and the songs he crafted are infinite.
George, thank you for more than words could ever say - love you and miss you so very much, always. ♥
rest in peace, george. we will never forget you
R.I.P. you beautiful soul <3
RIP George Harrison

"He was a beautiful musician and he had a beautiful voice, and he had a fantastic touch on the guitar and I miss that touch. But I’m not doing it to promote him or to make him a legend, or try to make him anything. His music is there. I’m sure it goes for all musicians – how music can change someone’s life and really lead them somewhere. I think for George, he talked about the inner journey and that was very important to him, although he was yin-yang. He could hang with the best of them. He was a scoundrel yogi. That’s what I loved about him, because he was honest. He was right up front about it. But there wasn’t a real divide between life and death for George. Even though, yes, he was human and he wanted to live, he didn’t see it so defined. He saw similarities in the sacred and the profane, in life and death. But it wasn’t morbid at all. He wanted to make something fun."

Today is the day that we should all remember what an amazing, talented, wonderful man Mr. George Harrison became. All though I cry as I write this, I’m happy for him. For all he did to become the George Harrison that we all know and love. George was (And is still) My favorite Beatle. He is my favorite solo artist as well. His music continues to touch our hearts, even as we go farther into a generation of electronic music that has no value. No matter what happens, or how horrible the world may get, George’s music can always make me (I’m sure you too) smile. Example; When the winter is cruel, cold, and seems never ending, just remember; “Here comes the sun.” It amazes me to far extents at how that little, shy fourteen year old boy that was introduced to a friend by a friend made it so far. Although I wish he was still here, I’m sure he’s very happy where he is now. Rest in Peace George. We all miss you more than you can imagine. Your music will live on forever, and so will your legacy.
Give me love
Give me love
Give me peace on earth
Give me light
Give me life
Keep me free from birth
Give me hope
Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with,
heart and soul…
And he did, touch and reach us all. Hear AND soul.
