I'd heard he was very ill... but, like with George, I didn't want to believe just how sick he was until the end. RIP, Neil...

Dear Neil was definitely one of the fifth Beatles. Who took care of them, I am sure, with very intimate love & care. RIP, brother.

This is just so incredibly sad. The fact that him and Mal are both gone now is just so strange and so sad to me. What a life, though! He did so, so much for us, and I am very thankful for him. God bless you, Nell.

God bless you, Neil. Hare Krishna.

Neil was a good friend to all the Fabs... he was the one who agreed to go to India with George, when George had wanted to get a better sitar (before the 'official' India trip). After Manila, when everyone was backing out of George, Neil didn't back out and said he would still accompany George. He was a good friend.
