George Harrison Surfaces With A Cheery Hello

Charles Bermant, Globe and Mail, The, 26 September 1987

GEORGE HARRISON has emerged to call attention to his future, but willingly discusses his past.

As a Beatle Harrison was all hair, knees and teeth, physically and musically overshadowed by Lennon and McCartney. Today he looks heavier and healthier, his medium-length, styled hair is offset by a salt-and-pepper stubble. And his warmth is overwhelming. "I couldn't live in a house full of journalists and have them ask me questions all the time," he said. "But there are occasions like this when I come out and say hello to people."
