George's death was a very differnt experience compared to John's murder. We knew he was ill but obviously the world wasn't told the full story. It was sort of like an uncle dying, I guess, but no less sad. It was a Saturday morning here in Australia when I heard the news. I went to the garage and did my weights as normal, but i was upset. When John died, I was 18 and it affected me a lot more.
I remember the papers had the Abbey Road photo on the front page. Also remember George Bush's reaction to the news. 'so there's only two Beatles left? That is sad',,,or something like that. I suppose we sort of forget it was only a couple of months after 9/11.
