As soon as I saw this topic that line popped into my head, that's classic George. :)

“After all we did for Britain, selling that corduroy and making it swing, all we got was a bit of tin on a piece of leather.”

And about the Spice Girls: "The good thing about them is that you can look at them with the sound turned down."

"We turn the sound down on her and say rude things."

"Don't encourage him. You've already got the part, Paul!"

Press: How do you feel about a nightclub called Arthur, named after your hair style?
George: I was proud, until I saw the nightclub.

Michael Aspel interviewing George and Ringo on his chat show in 1988:


Aspel: "What was your biggest waste of money?"
George (quick as a flash): "Apple!"

That's really my all-time favorite.

I like when he's in Rockline and this guy calls in and says something along the lines of "hi George, I like your record quite a bit".

He answers: "what do you mean quite a bit? You gotta love it, man, get off the line!".

I remember in the Wilburys DVD, they were doing Last Night.

Somebody: She was long and tall [or something similar to that]
George: Or short and fat.

Louise the Elder loved to tell this story about George when he was a teenager.

The senior Harrisons went out for the evening. John was keeping George company. When they returned, they were aghast to see George in the tightest trousers they had ever seen. Harold Sr. demanded that George unpick the stitching at once, to which George explained that he couldn't as he'd cut the pieces away.

The funny part was when George said he couldn't do his ballet in clothing other than his very tight drainies. To prove his point, he leapt and twisted and shouted about the room, causing even Harold Sr. to relent and see the funny side of things. Louise the Elder in relating this adorable story said that George was not cheeky and could get around them easily based on that.

I love the interview where he's talking about album names and says "I could have just called it Spot the Looney"....

Q: In the Anthology book, you talk about the unwound G string. What is that?
I play guitar and I'm not sure what you're talking about.

George: It's one of those little things that goes up your butt so that people can't see your pantylines
