I’m not making this up. Apparently, a tree planted in honor of the late George Harrison has been killed by Beetles. So yes we have a Beetle on Beatle crime.
Well, I suppose all things must pass.
It’s kind of odd though. Earlier this morning, I finished reading Marc Shapiro’s posthumous biography of Harrison titled Behind Sad Eyes: The Life of George Harrison. Only a few hours passed between reading about Harrison’s last days on earth and this tree. I bought it over the weekend at a bookstore on Carmine Street in Greenwich Village called Unoppressive, Non-Imperialist Bargain Books. Although I was glad to see books by Bob Newhart aren’t considered imperialist, I must say the repeated playing of Peter, Paul and Mary songs was indeed quite oppressive.
Anyhow here are my ten favorite George Harrison songs.
