Alan Walsh, Melody Maker, 2 September 1967

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.
