Excellent pix!  Sounds like a very nice ceremony, although I had roll my eyes at Tom Hanks' comment: "All things must pass, sure. But George is going to live forever."

He doesn't seem to have gotten the point.

Adam, thanks!

Okay, so I went through my photos again and tried zooming in on Olivia and Dhani.  Also, I think one of my pics has Paul in it, but it's really bad (he's a bit hidden and fuzzy).  :(  But hopefully these will be easier to look at.


I believe that's Paul (center), but hidden behind a camera (sigh).


Dhani (center).

You know, I did not see her there.  I don't know if she was invited.  

Also, one big, nagging question I've had all day is:  Where was Ringo??

Thanks for the pics, BTW!

Thank you everybody! Thank you Penny Lane! You are very lucky, I envy you S0 much!
I also was thinking where Ringo was? Though the thought about Pattie didn`t occur to me. I think her appearance would have been a bit inappropriate.

When Paul revealed it I started crying a little bit, not sure why. *Embarassed & Confused* :)

  When I was watching it I and Tom Hanks came on I was like what the heck! But I loved loved LOVED what he said....it was beautiful.

       I would have wish that Olivia or Dhani would have revealed the star, but Paul was probably asked because of his star status. But I loved how when the Interview got up in his face he kept it short and sweet, he probably wanted the attention to stay where it mattered :)

Seemed like a wonderful ceremony nonetheless...well deserved.

Thank you for that video, Cor!

I like how Olivia and Dhani had to touch the star as soon as it was unveiled-- it looked ritualistic, touching their foreheads (I think) and then touching the star. I wouldn't be surprised if they had all worked this out in advance-- Paul would remove the cover, so Olivia and Dhani could pay their respects immediately and as one. Yes, DSL, Paul was gracious in keeping his remarks short.

Lovely ceremony. I loved seeing the people (friends) who turned out to honor George.

I wonder if Paul was asked to reveal the star partly because he'd known George the longest out of everyone.  After all, he was the one who introduced George to John and got him into the Beatles. :)

Ya, but longest doesn't really matter.

Olivia was George's wife. And Dhani is his own flesh and blood.

Paul was probably asked to do it because of his celebrity aspect.

I'm sure Paul's celebrity status did play a part, but it's not the only thing.  If they simply wanted a famous person, they could've asked Eric Idle or Tom Petty or whomever to reveal the star, but they didn't.  Olivia and Dhani were obviously very important people in George's life, but they weren't there to witness George's formative years as an artist.  As a Beatle, Paul was very much a part of George's personal and professional life.  I don't think not having Liv or Dhani reveal the star was intended as a slight, but in respect to George's musical history, it just made more sense to have Paul reveal the star.

Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here...this topic got stuck in my head and I'd rather discuss this instead of doing the dishes in the kitchen.  :P
