OT-Celebration of George Harrison's Life

For the musicians and artists in the group - though way off topic here's a heads up.
Happened on an extraoridnary performance tonight - celebrating the life of George Harrison. More musicians per square inch on one stage than anywhere else in the world - Ravi Shankar and his band, directed by his daughter, Michael Palen doing Im a Lumber Jack with the accompanying RC Mounities choir, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Ringo Star and three other drummers, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney and a flock and a half of musicians with more guitarists than you can shake a stick at.
All these musicians had known George and each other for a long long time and had played together for countless hours over the years. They did a lot of Georges songs, many that were immediately recognized after being almost forgotten. And they did what musicians can do - played their asses off, and their hearts out - one coherent blend of feelings, expressed as sounds, eminating from a host of instruments and a range of voices, but all from the heart. And the word play was obvious - they all were enjoying playing - no big egoes trying to outdo each other.- they just locked in and took off for where musicians can go - and take anyone along who wants to go with them. What a place that is!
The effect George had on them came out in their music and in their voices - and it was glorious, even via a TV screen and two small speakers.
If you want to experience the celebration of a life, check PBS.org for when this thing will be on in your area. You will definitely get a buzz.

Thanks for the heads up, Charlie .... if I don't have a gig, I'll catch it for sure. BTW, did you see the Diana Krall Trio on Ovation channel a few weeks back? ... I don't know if it was old or new, but that was one of the most awesome displays of musical talent I've ever witnessed, from three or thirty three. Even crossed generations, my 18 year old daughter was wowed.
Does Elvis Costello really deserve that? :)

Yeah, caught the last half of it last night. Good show. BTW one of the guitarists was George's son, you can tell which one since he looked *just* like George did in the 60's, hairstyle and all.

I recorded it last night. Haven't had a chance to see it yet. LOML is going to watch Survivor and Apprentice tonight. I guess we'll stay married in spite of her tastes in TV. Mayhap I'll watch it tomorrow.     mahalo,     jo4hn
