“I have 700 students and a teaching staff that I’m responsible for every day. Don’t get on my case because one kid overreacted to some spilled paint.”

“Yeah, one kid who you personally spoke to twice in the past two days. But did you listen?!”

“‘Like, my boy’s nine, and he just loves Chuck Berry. When I did that Prince’s Trust concert last June - that was the first time he ever saw me hold a guitar onstage in front of people. He’s got to know a bit about the Beatles, but I’ve never pushed that on him or tried to say, ‘Look who I used to be.’ I did my two cute songs: “Here Comes the Sun” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” He came back after the show, and I said, 'What did you think?’ He said, 'You were good, Dad, you were good [slight pause]. Why didn’t you do 'Roll Over Beethoven,’ 'Johnny B. Goode’ and 'Rock & Roll Music’?’ I said, 'Dhani, that’s Chuck Berry’s show you’re talking about!’

Dhani discovered Chuck Berry through a roundabout route. His mother, Olivia, a California girl, dug out the Beach Boys’ 'Surfing U.S.A.’ after Dhani heard the song in the movie 'Teen Wolf.’ Then, Harrison says, 'I said, “That’s really good, but you want to hear where that came from,” and I played him “Sweet Little Sixteen.”’ … 'I made him a Chuck Berry tape,’ Harrison says, 'and he takes it to school with his Walkman.’

Does his father approve? 'Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis - there hasn’t been any rock & roll better than that,’ Harrison says plainly.” - Rolling Stone, 1987 [x]

“George liked listening to Mozart the most at home. And old classics like Cab Calloway or Hoagy Carmichael. He gave our son Dhani a musical education by playing records to him that he thought were relevant. Or if there was a cover version on the radio, he explained to Dhani what the original version was. That’s how our son was introduced to Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and other rock ‘n’ roll classics.” - Olivia Harrison, translated from Spiegel, 17 October 2014 [x]
