Пардон за вчерашнюю путаницу. Сегодня рано утром состоялся не один, а два чата Джорджа Харрисона, приуроченные к выходу ремастированной пластинки "All Things Must Pass". Первый из чатов имел место на Yahoo в 4 часа утра по московскому времени. Харрисон общался с фанатами около 45 минут, затем с десятиминутным опозданием прибыл на второй чат, устроенный MSN и начавшийся в 5.10 утра. Официальные протоколы чатов еще не опубликованы, но вы уже сейчас можете ознакомиться с вопросами и ответами, имевшими место на MSN.com.
DishDiva George, welcome to MSN Live!
George_Harrison_Live Hello, good evening! How's your father! How's your uncle?
DishDiva George, the Internet was not a part of your promotion last time around for "All Things Must Pass." What part does the Internet play in promotion for "ALL Things Must Pass" now?
George_Harrison_Live I suppose the fact that it is just like this. And everyone is listening. It eliminates the time of someone printing up a Newspaper.
SR Is it true that you were really asked to
join the beatles because you knew all the chords to "Twenty Flight
George_Harrison_Live No! Paul knew "Twenty Flight Rock" but I did
Spockmiester55 What is the difference between
the old and new release if any?
George_Harrison_Live The new release is remastered and is
much much better to the record that existed up until now and it has
five bonus tracks on it. It also has new packaging.
Sherwood Will your other past releases receive
the deluxe treatment as "Pass" did?
George_Harrison_Live It depends really. They will all be
remastered. Whether the artwork will change, I don't know. It depends
what we feel at the time and what the record company feels at the time.
jerryfender Don't you miss the old packaging
with albums vs CD's? All Things Must Pass was great because even the
box was huge!
George_Harrison_Live Twelve inch square artwork gets you more
scope and greater impact. Those days the album cover used to be
part of the overall package. It seems to become less important
because it is smaller and not so many people are interested in the
doodah Where were you spiritually then when
you wrote the lyrics for "My Sweet Lord", and where are you now
spritually, have you grown?
George_Harrison_Live Somebody said a very famous Indian saint
said "if there is a God, we must see him. And if there is a soul we
must perceive it." In the West they still argue if God
really exists. Basically, I am in the same place. The
song really came from Swami Vivekananda.
iluvgeorge Will you be touring?
George_Harrison_Live At the moment, no.
lidbaby Any musicians you like right now?
George_Harrison_Live Hoagy Carmichael. There are many, many, many musicians.
babe Is most of what's been written about you pure
rubbish? Is there any one book that's more accurate than any other?
George_Harrison_Live The one that is the most accurate is "The
Beatles" by the Beatles. When a book is written by someone who doesn't
like you, it may not be very good.
WildingTangent Are you still writing and recording
songs? How would your style of music these days?
George_Harrison_Live I am still doing that, yes. Hopefully, there
will be one coming out at the end of the year.
tedsblues recording...analog or digital?
George_Harrison_Live I have always recorded analog except when I
was in a live concert. Generally, I record on analog but I hear that
digital these days are getting better. The bandwidth is getting better.
arainyfriday Looking back, how do you view
your book "I, Me, Mine"? If it were to be re-released, would you make
changes based on perspective you have gained over the years?
George_Harrison_Live It was ok for the time. I thought it was
well made. It was an excuse to have a nice leather book like the Bible.
liam0241 What was the inspiration for the
song 'Run of the Mill'
George_Harrison_Live There was an expression that came from
Yorkshire where they made fabric. Run of the mill just means average. I
was using that phrase more or less, because, the Beatles were just
splitting up. I don't know if they had that expression
sasha Hi Mr. Harrison. My dad and I like your
site. Did you do it?
George_Harrison_Live I am not a technician. But I sat with
people from Radical Media. They came to my house and set up the
computers. The technicians did it and I kept thinking of ideas. I didn't have a concept of what a
website was and I still don't understand the concept. I wanted to see little people poking
each other with sticks much like Monty Python.
rico What do you wish you could do, that you
have'nt done already?
George_Harrison_Live Dematerialize my body.
OKRichH I consider this a great priviledge to
chat with you. Was the recording of "All Things Must Pass" a fulfilling
outlet for you?
George_Harrison_Live Yeah, at the time it was very fulfilling-
a chance to do a record of my own material.
Brit What's the most popular misconception
about you that people have?
George_Harrison_Live That I am series. Pisces are depicted as
two fish going in opposite directions. That I am serious! Many people do not see the humorous
side. It is just as big!
Beat Are you interested in all in the
different sounds that electronics can add to guitar sounds, or are you
more of a 'back to basics' advocate?
George_Harrison_Live More of back to basics. I really like
the sounds they had in the 50's. Now you just buy something and plug it
in. You can sound liek Jimi Hendrix or whoever and everyone sounds the
jediprincess00 What would you like to say to
the younger generation that looks up to you?
George_Harrison_Live: Try to realize what the purpose of being
in a body is. There is only one purpose really and that is what you
have to try to not forget. Who am I? Where did I come from? Where
am I going?
DishDiva George, it has been a pleasur having you as our
George_Harrison_Live Lots of love and kevlar to everyone! It has been nice talking to you. Please
enjoy the website!
