I woke up this morning humming a tune. Snookeroo by Ringo Starr, off his Goodnight Vienna album, and the song was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. Why that song? I haven't heard it in over 15 years!
But it did take me on one of those deep YouTube Magical Mystery tours, which in this case had Ringo Starr and George Harrison as the main attractions. Check out the cast list on this 1987 Prince's Trust With a Little Help from My Friends
And then on to George Harrison with this version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, looks like the same 1987 concert, check out the 80s jackets and the all star cast.
But what I found after this, is the George Harrison Tribute Concert in 2002, 1 year after he died. Some amazing clips and if you want to be spooked out, check out the young George Harrison playing in their midst!That song had me in tears. You know, Joe Brown is a deeper connection to my childhood than the Beatles because I think there was limited access to The Beatles on TV than say Joe Brown, who is like your older Bruvva, even then when you're a kid! Go have a look at the other songs from the concert.
I love this Billy Preston, My Sweet Lord.
And a few people crop up in these clips. Ray Cooper for followers of Elton John, the weird percussionist with the tambourine! Mark King from Level 42 and his slap base style, from the '87 clip, and Jeff Lynne (ELO) seems to cut across a lot of musicians, he seems such a nice, modest and talented guy, who George Harrison asked to produce his posthumous album.
You want funny, and touching, and irreverent, then check out Jeff Lynne and George Harrison's son Dhani, who produced George Harrison's album after he died.
