Peanut, think. Louise was 11 1/2 when George came along. She was out of the Harrison house by the time he was 5 or 6. When George started dating as a teenager, Louise was married and living in Scotland AND later Canada.

Louise has consistently said she was proud and delighted her beautiful brother had done so well and made so many people happy. She's an outgoing personality, a French girl and George was a private man. Lou has said many times she envisioned herself on a stage and drew herself on stage as a young child. (I wonder what she looked like as a girl before George arrived). There is a picture of her in 1964 sharing a stage with the senior Harrisons in "Before He Was Fab." The picture was taken at the Finch Lane Bus Conductors' Club where Harold Sr. was the evening MC.

Ringo was an only child, yes.

I'd love to see pictures of other Harrison and French family members. I think Lou will tell folks that she did not want the pictures her ex leaked out to have been leaked out. I don't think she'll say something different in the book than what she said in the interview. I think Lou's telling it like it is.

I knew she was quite a bit older, but I'm sure she came back to visit the folks. I did not know she later lived In Scotland and Canada. There is a book Bfore He Was Fab?

The book is worth having. You see some really nice photos. The story is worth it - for years I wanted the story of George when he came to America in 1963.

Thank you!

I hope I get a promo copy of the book. Better still, I hope I get an autographed copy.

Lou sounds like such a lovely person. Louise French from all accounts was. She sounded like such a kind, maternal and very loving woman. Like mother, like daughter.

I think Lou is so adorable, like when the Liverpool Legends boys carried her around the room. She has such spark and personality and she loves her brothers very much.
