Well they're not dying in order of ugliness anyway or Ringo would ave been first.

To be fair, he never pretended to be a drummer at all...

Since they seem to be dying in approximate order of coolness (greatest to least), and we have only two candidates left, we now face the question of who's cooler, Paul or Ringo.

I vote for Ringo, who has never pretended to be anything but a great rock drummer.

lol.. a rather subtle headline in this week's edition of The Onion:

"Ringo Next"

Speaking of humor, George Harrison deserves a load of thanks for having co-founded and financed HandMade Films, the company that gave us Monty Python's THE MEANING OF LIFE and WITHNAIL AND I, among others. Harrison said that "Laughter is the great release", and he put his money where his mouth was.

Billynorm,

"George was ready. Sadly, I wasn't."

What have you died as well Billynorm? My commiserations if you have and I must say you seem to be taking it rather well (your attitude shows that you are obviously well on your way towards enlightenment).

What new life form did your old spark of consciousness leapt into? I presume a human life form as otherwise you wouldn't be able to post on this forum and I must say your command of the English language is exceptional for a new-born baby.

"All Things Must Pass"

"The Art Of Dying"

"Isn't It A Pity?"

George was ready.

Sadly, I wasn't.

Nothing has really happened except that 'George Harrison's' physical makeup has altered, it did so for every moment before. Grief, tears and sadness are all just a waste of time. Its Karma. 'George Harrison' never really existed.

Rock on George, one time for me.

My favorite Beatle. See you later gator.

RIP, George. Arrogant you were not, kewpie cutesy you were not (or did not remain, at least). May your reincarnation be most fragrant.

At 15 I was chasing the skirts of a Guatemalan housekeeper, hoping for another bout of sex with her. Then she became a very devout christian and tried to drag me to her "Charismatic" church, to speak in tongues, etc. It wasn't worth the sex.

At 15 I was sniffing glue and listening to The Guns of Brixton.

Doing acid at 15? You must have been a hell of a 15-year-old. Was Kesey your uncle?

Life goes on within you and without you, buddy.

I can't begin to express how important George Harrison was to me.

CREME TANGERINE!

There's a fog upon L. A.
And my friends have lost their way
We'll be over soon they said
Now they've lost themselves instead


Pure Zen from a rock and roll mystic.

I remember listening to "Blue Jay Way" on acid
when I was 15 years old. The music became wings fluttering around and under me, lifting me upward/skyward, electric, vibrant, soaring, alive.

"Like a poem by Rumi. "

Wow....

By Marccampbell on Friday, November 30, 2001 - 12:58 am: Edit

George Harrison was the "quiet" Beatle. He didn't have Lennon's dark wit, Ringo's goofiness, McCartney's lighthearted poppiness, Harrison was mysterious and mystical. His music wasn't obvious, it was subtle and elevating. His guitar did more than just weep, it yearned. Like a poem by Rumi.

By Dr_Ordinaire on Friday, November 30, 2001 - 12:43 am: Edit

Weren't The Beatles something special? Sure, other generations had their own idols, but Frank Sinatra, Madonna, never made it to that status. We were lucky...

Recently I rented "Help" It is so funny, even the parts that don't make a lot of sense....

By Dr_Ordinaire on Friday, November 30, 2001 - 12:37 am: Edit

It is sad, I loved them.

George Harrison has passed away, the ranks are thinning.
