New Music Project!? Can't wait for that!

I hope they tape it and brodcast it. I really want to see it. Bout time someone deserving gets a star,  I feel they just give them away today.

Anyways...

Congrats George!

That's good they'll be there. It's not something I would miss if I could be there.

"OUR BOY" (as his family called him) will receive a star! The Quiet Beatle. The most gentle one. The most handsome one. I`ve got his picture on my table.  :)

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but do any of the other Beatles have stars?

It's a nice honor for George , is it in recognition for his film producing work with Handmade Films ?
Wonder if the new music project is a greatest hits album ,which is long overdue ?

I know John has a star.

I hope it's a George Harrison Anthology.

Hi guys, I decided to drive out to see George get his star in Hollywood today.  It was a fantastic day.  Very crowded but pleasant and sunny.

Today's guests included Tom Hanks, Tom Petty, Eric Idle, Jeff Lynne (I think?), Olivia and Dhani Harrison, and a surprise guest was Paul McCartney.  I had no clue he would be there and I totally died (see my mailbox note, it's pathetic).

Eric, Olivia, and some others gave speeches for today's event.  I think Dhani only said "Hare Krishna" to the crowd and Paul did not give a speech.  However, Eric said that Paul was a really, really great friend to George as he was dying, and I believe he said that George actually died in Paul's house.  ???  Wow.   ??)

Since it was so crowded, I couldn't get many good pics.  (I was stuck at the back near the press entrance.)  I'll see what I can upload, but it's not much.  George's new star looks great, BTW, and I got to visit John's star too.

I just had to share this with you all.  I wasn't even sure if I was going to go today since I'm terrible with driving directions, but I am SOOO glad I went! (grin)  (grin)  (grin)

Look to the right of the security guy's head (the blond guy with sunglasses in the center).  Olivia Harrison is far away but she is two heads to the right of him (dark hair, dark suit).  Hard to see in the pic but she looked lovely.


Look towards the back in the same area, it's Dhani Harrison (long-haired guy in profile) and Olivia.  He is handsome!

The message on the flowers was cute.  I think it said "Handle George with Care." :)

A fan with a really cool sign.  I think I saw another fan holding up a license plate that read "2N2FAB4" (too into Fab Four, LOL).


A fan with an OPP patch, a la Sgt. Pepper.


John's star, about half a block away from George's.


Georgie's brand new star.


The Capitol Records building.  Look familiar to anyone? :)

I am sorry to say I have NO pics of Paul.  I have a video of him--he pops in really quickly and is fuzzy in the background, but you can hearing me gasping in shock.  I have no clue how to upload vids but it's kind of embarrassing anyway because my dorky moment is forever preserved on video.

Andy and Mrs. Lennon, thanks!  I am so seriously overwhelmed right now.  I just went today because I wanted to see George's star and support Olivia and Dhani.  I honestly didn't know who else was coming.  Seeing Paul come out was a massive shock for me and I'm still SO freaked out right now.  He was beautiful!!  OMG.   ??)

Also, I talked to a camera/video producer person and she said Paul's guest appearance today was supposed to be a secret.  Even she did not know that he would be present.  After the ceremony, I went to the parking lot of Capitol Records to talk to more fans.  One lady said I just missed Paul's and Tom Petty's exit.  But she said Paul looked very handsome to her, more handsome in real life than in photos, and that he drove away in a purple convertible Corvette(?).   ;D

But I am glad I got to share my photos and experience with you guys!  I don't have many Beatlemaniac friends so this is a real pleasure for me.  :)  I've had better luck uploading pics here than FB, which is being crazy and stubborn right now!

Mrs. Lennon, BTW, I left a gift for you in your mailbox. ;)
