Fab! Gear! The George Harrison Interview (part 1)

J. Kordosh, Creem, December 1987

IN A PLUSH Warner Bros, office, Bill Holdship and I listened to George Harrison's first album in over five years, Cloud Nine. "I wracked my brains for a title, trying to think of something that didn't have one of the song titles in it," Harrison said later. (He didn't succeed; the title song kicks off the album.) "It was called Fab for about half an hour," he added. Since the record was still being mastered, there were only a few cassette copies available, and those strictly for listening within the confines of Warner Bros., who distribute Harrison's Dark Horse label.
