I'm sure we've got something similar in the UK but it's one of those crimes that rarely gets prosecuted.
Round my area, even during the school run, I'd estimate that 1 in 5 drivers (a conservative estimate) are utilising a hand held phone for one purpose or another.

No I dont think they did

apparently they were interested in all the Indian muso's when the were in the studio and Rings was playing chess with Mal

These darn books eh, Geoffs book seems accurate when you read it but Ken Scott has rubbished a lot of it, Johns playboy comment seems at odds with Geoffs recollections also

Well. No one in the 60s thought what they were doing was going to be picked over 50 years later.  Remembering things in detail decades later must require a lot of revisionism in your own head. If people are treating you like the font of all wisdom you'd probably convince yourself you were certain of things you can barely remember.

I was staring out of the window from the top deck of a London bus the other day (Route 55: Leyton to Oxford Circus, it takes hours) and it finally dawned on me what a mass of people look like when all walking along gazing at mobile phones.....a scene from the 50s film 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'.


In the U.S., AT&T launched a no texting and driving campaign.  Hell, texting and walking can be dangerous if someone steps off a curb into the street!

Ah ok. Did John and Paul even have any involvement? I thought it was George plus Indian musos

I doubt they were even there to roll their eyes. John usually frequented himself from George songs anyway.

When does a George solo song cease to be a George solo song and become a Beatles song instead?!

As a late 60s demo/work out/instrumental of a Beatles b-side, this track could surely have surfaced on 'Anthology 2'.

Oh well, I'm running with it.....I'm getting a new Beatles song on Monday.
Major result!

The inclusion of The Inner Light on Wonderwall Music seems to be the most interesting thing. I'm presuming that the bonus track is the unissued instrumental take 1 done in India. It should be a different backing track than take 5, which was used on the regular B-side.

It is indeed the instrumental take 1.

John Lennon in Playboy (1980):  “I think that is one of George’s best songs, one of my favourites of his.  I like the arrangement, the sound and the words.  He is clear on that song.  You can hear his mind is clear and his music is clear.  It’s his innate talent that comes through on that song, that brought that song together.  George is responsible for Indian music getting over here.  That song is a good example.”

and yet Ive just read in Geoffs book that John & paul really didnt like it and were glancing at each other and doing some 'ok if we have too' noises

They tried to do Northern Song for Pepper but everybody thought it was really weak

Johns above statement makes you wonder if Geoff spouts crap in his book as has been said earlier in this thread, very anti George this book.

Kev which song was John talking about in the Playboy interview?

It's so hard to tell with John. He blew hot and cold on so much Beatle stuff. Depended how much Yoko was whispering in his ear.

What song is that? The Inner Light? I read a quote from Paul on that song, saying something like 'forget about the Indian stuff and listen to the melody? Isn't it just lovely?'
