Well Sir George was amazing!! i got to hang around the whole signing for over an hour!! i met him pretty early on, and unfortunately his hearing is not the best..he heard the first part of what i said (that i had come from NZ), but then this music came on, and he couldnt understand the rest of what i said! he goes "Youve really copped it now!" anyway, he extended his hand real friendly, and goes "Hi!" really simply..his wife, Lady Judy was really nice aswell. He signed my book personally aswell, im still not 100% sure of the wording, cause i havent reopened it from all the packaging yet! (definetly not light reading on the plane!) and then i asked to get a photo, and he goes "theres not enough time, maybe get one when the next people come thru!" LOL..so i didnt actually get a photo with him, but i got a couple of the signing..I have to say Sir George was a bit uptight, particularly with a few other people in particular (this one guy didnt buy a book but somehow managed to get in..) but overall, it was just an immense pleasure to meet and be around him for so long..the dinner to was also very amazing..Sir George spoke for an hour, on his life, Peter Sellers (his hilarious indian voices)"see, i was making indian music even before i met George Harrison", Spike milligan and the bridge of the River Wye (LOL) and of course The Beatles, particularly sgt pepper..Sir George played lots of excerpts from the making of Sgt Pepper film, and then talked about them..it was just amazing to hear him say things like "Sugar plumb fairy"!! so overall, it was an amzing evening, and one i will remember and treasure for a long time. despite the fact he didnt get a photo with me! Thanks Sir George!!

he put: "best wishes to Daniel..George Martin.. I should have asked him to put "To Maharishi" LOL..actually he mentioned MMY, when he was talking about Brian Epstein, and the beatles went off for their "meditation bit" and he kept getting Maharishi's name wrong!! he said it several times, and still got it wrong..not a big fan of Maharishi i think!! on the way there on the plane, i went thru the most amazing clouds over water and sunset, really special, and i thought of George Harrison immediatedly "Stuck inside a cloud", as the air and clouds swelled outside, now to hear some of that track on the EPK, is amazing..
