Paul McCartney remembers late Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison every night on tour when he pays tribute to his former bandmates.
The singer says he takes an emotional trip down memory lane at each date on his On the Run tour when he performs Beatles hits, including their 1969 ballad "Something," which was written by Harrison. He tells British magazine Radar, "Pretty much every night on the show (I think of them) because I do tributes to them. I have big photographs of George behind me when I do the song 'Something,' his song, and I look at them, and it's so sad because he's not here.
"But it's lovely to look at those pictures and think, 'God, my mate George, isn't he a good-looking boy!' You think all the things you couldn't think when you were a kid, because the bravado aspect forbade it. I do think of them quite a lot." Lennon was shot and killed in New York in 1980, while Harrison lost his battle with cancer in 2001.
Everything we all write re: the Beatles, was made into a song!
Happy, Yesterday, Blueberry Fields FOREVER---Let it Be, take a word, and it will be a Beatles' song.
"Key Words". Amazing.
The Beatles had the best composed music, ever. They were absolute Music Geniuses.
Very few words, lyrics, light happy songs., They will have staying power in the Music Industry forever.
None of that "Dark" Stuff that is produced today---They made us "Happy".
