The George Harrison Interview

Alan Walsh, Melody Maker, 2 September 1967

"You may think this interview is of no importance to me," said George Harrison across a table in NEM's Enterprises Mayfair offices. "But you'd be wrong. It's very important. We have realised that it's up to everyone — including the Beatles — to spread love and understanding and to communicate this in any way we can." George, radiant in flowered shirt and trousers, long flowing hair and bushy moustache, lit up a dismal wet London day by his clothes, his friendliness and the warmth of his replies. George spoke quietly but frankly about many subjects — from God to LSD — and the 90 minute conversation examined the whole existence of the most introspective Beatle.
