“The last time I played in England was with The Beatles in 1966. […] I had never performed at a concert as a solo artist in England. Not many people know this, but not many people care. They [the audience at the Royal Albert Hall] loved it. That was the best thing for me. […]
[F]or years the British press always seemed bitchy to me and nasty and I had built up this impression that the British don’t like me and my music. So I thought, ‘Well, that’s all right by me. I can live here quietly.’ But when I stepped on the stage of the Albert Hall, it was unbelievable. The audience was so happy. It was the most incredible buzz; it was like a ‘love-in’. It was one of those things where I could have just stood on my head and done anything and they would have just loved it. So perhaps absence does make the heart grow fonder.” - George Harrison [x]

“My most memorable [on stage] moment is probably playing with George Harrison at the [Royal] Albert Hall. THAT was a spiritual night.” - Mike Campbell, Wild Blue Gator, 18 November 1999 [x]
