"Paul pretending to be famous, shortly before becoming very famous. He looks more like a bank clerk than a pop star."

Rolling Stone [5 November 1987]: “Did you feel the two of you might have gotten close again if he hadn’t been murdered?”
George Harrison: “No, I only felt physically unclose to him, because we’d gone through too many things. You know, the very first time we took LSD, John and I were together. And that experience together, and a lot of other things that happened after that, both on LSD and on the meditation trip in Rishikesh - we saw beyond each other’s physical bodies, you know? That’s there permanently, whether he’s in a physical body or not. I mean, this is the goal anyway: to realize the spiritual side. If you can’t feel the spirit of some friend who’s been that close, then what chance have you got of feeling the spirit of Christ or Buddha or whoever else you may be interested in? ‘If you’re memory serves you well, we’re going to meet again.’ I believe that.”
