I turn the TV on at random times- like when I'm bored with playing solitaire on the computer- and happen into programmes part way through. Last night it was the film of the tribute concert for George Harrison. At the point I clicked in the Pythons (minus Cleese) were doing the lumberjack song. After that it was mainly George's old mates singing his music with Eric Clapton centre stage and George's son Danny (who looks just like him) as his side-kick. Billy Preston was playing Hammond and Macca was playing piano and Ringo (looking no older than he ever did) was one of a clutch of percussionists.|
You got the feeling that they were all there not because they felt obligated, but because they really loved George.
