Default Hi, I\'m New (RIP George Harrison 1943-2001)

I've been browsing for a while, but figure its probably the time to register, because I finally have something to talk about.

This morning I woke up, like any other day, and got ready for school. I put on my black "With The Beatles" t-shirt and got ready to go to school. Normally I play "Let's Spend The Night Together" by the Stones before school every morning, today for some reason I felt as if I should listen to "It's All Too Much", one of my favorite Beatles tracks.

On the way to school my dad turned on the radio, and I heard the flags at Liverpool were at half staff. I figured maybe it's because it was getting close to the anniversary of John's death, but was proved wrong in a matter of seconds. It hit me hard and I began crying; I hadn't cried since the September 11 tragedy.

I had grown up with the music of the Beatles, and just recently began reading up on them, even doing a report on them in school. George was my favorite Beatle, I was a lot like him. In fact, it was the distinct sounds of George Harrison's guitar playing that got me into taking guitar lessons.

My friends, teachers, and family were all very kind today; even people I don't normally get along with came up to me and offered their condolences (I'm the biggest Beatle fan in my school). A few teachers even observed a moment of silence before each class.

I offer my condolences to all of you other Beatle fans(more-so to Olivia, Dhani, and everyone else close to George, although they probably won't read this), because I know that you were deeply hurt today if you're a big a fan as me, or probably bigger.

Things like this make you realize that the Beatles were human, but they will live on forever through their music, and for that they're immortal.

Thanks for taking the time to read this

I am also new to the links. Somehow, I needed to express my sadness today. May George rest in peace. Thank you for all the music and laughter you gave to us.
Love, Cheryl

Hey....like PW and Cheryl I am new here. Finally found somewhere on the net where I can post my emotions about such a great man. Here in Oz, we have lost some musical icons in the last year, but I will never forget such a true gentleman of the industry. I can hear Handle me With Care right now going thru my mind at the moment....such an awesome voice. Well, one day, I hope to catch up with u George

Welcome to you too, maccagirl10 and Rod! And don't be in a hurry to catch up to George, Rod; I'm sure he'd want us to be living in the material world for a while yet.

Welcome all three of you.
The death of George got all the Beatle fans really close!
Well I want ask sth irrelevant:
Do you wear black clothes when someone of your relatives or friends dies?
Here in Greece it is a tradition doing that.
It is like paying a tribute to them.
Well the point I want to make is that I wear black clothes for George's death.Well some of my classmates(they are Beatle haters) think it's very funny but I do not(it is one of the ways I've found to express my sadness).
We all will miss George because his contribution to the music world is just unique
