sorry that I haven’t been posting much lately, I’ve been busy packing up all my things and working a shitty job and it’s all for college!!!
When I met George it was love at first sight. He was absolutely irresistible. We’d stay up all night playing and laughing. He made me do all the Python sketches and I made him do all the Beatle songs.

“Behind That Locked Door was when Bob Dylan was playing at the Isle of Wight soon after his Nashville Skyline album. I wrote this song about him:
Why are you still crying
Your pain is now through
Please forget those teardrops
Let me take them from you
The love you are blessed with
This world’s waiting for
So let out your heart please, please
From behind that locked door
It was a good excuse to do a country tune with pedal steel guitar.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine

—Isn't It A Pity (demo)
George Harrison - “Isn’t It A Pity” (demo)
“Isn’t It A Pity is about whenever a relationship hits a down point - instead of whatever other people do (like breaking each other’s jaws) I wrote a song. It was a chance to realise that if I felt somebody had let me down, then there’s a good chance I was letting someone else down. We all tend to break each other’s hearts, taking and not giving back - isn’t it a pity.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine
