Talking to Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan talked freely about Harrison’s struggle to find his voice within the songwriting collective of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

“George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?” he asked.

Dylan highlighted the writing talents of Harrison, saying: “If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.”- Quoted in an NME article, “Bob Dylan talks of Beatles friendship”, 16 May 2007

“I’ve always liked the way George Harrison plays guitar—restrained and good.”
-Bob Dylan to Ron Rosenbaum, Nov 1977

George Harrison - “Behind That Locked Door” - All Things Must Pass

Behind That Locked Door was when Bob Dylan was playing at the Isle of Wight soon after his Nashville Skyline album. I wrote this song about him:

Why are you still crying
Your pain is now through
Please forget those teardrops
Let me take them from you
The love you are blessed with
This world’s waiting for
So let out your heart please, please
From behind that locked door

It was a good excuse to do a country tune with pedal steel guitar.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine

years and years ago, a boyfriend and i were watching jerry maguire on like, idk, probably vhs, maybe a dvd, who knows, but ‘shelter from the storm’ is in that movie and i said that it was my favorite bob dylan song (IT STILL IS) and this stupid guitar-playing vinyl-collecting elitist prick that i was voluntarily around all the time literally sneered and asked if i only knew it from the movie 

and at the time i stammered out a no no no of course not, but this morning i listened to that song and was just suddenly furious over something that happened more than ten years ago

WHAT IF I DID ONLY KNOW IT FROM THE MOVIE????? WHAT THEN????? WHO CARES?????? ARE THE BOB DYLAN POLICE GONNA CART ME OFF TO FOLK MUSIC JAIL????

Bob Dylan and The Band rehearsing for the last shows (they played an afternoon AND evening set) of Tour ‘74 on February 14th, Valentine’s Day, at the Forum in Inglewood.

“Mr. Tambourine Man” was added to the finale, with a full electric arrangement notable for its addition of accordion played by Garth Hudson. It was Sara Dylan’s favorite song.

December. I am gold. Like the moonlight. My lips still taste like the alcohol on your breath the first night we met. They are warm and swollen. Your kiss memorized in my brain. I am floating on a cloud. My heart begins to thaw as your hand touches mine. The snowflakes lace between my hair like a million little crystals. I know I should be cold but winter is warm in your coat. You’re an Indian summer, it’s the middle of winter.


January. I am silver. I am your new year’s kiss. My fingers are laced through your hair and I am laying on your couch. You play the Bob Dylan record we bought last week, you strum my feelings along with your chords. Your fingers are beautiful, gentle yet strong. I feel safe in your sheets, you tell me about your dreams. I fall for you. It is too cold for our love, you tell me that all that is silver eventually rusts.


February. I am grey. I am a shattered mirror, my life lacks the colours you once brought. It is still snowing and I long for it to rain and wash away my thoughts. I bathe a lot, to rid your touch, I drown myself every night. It is still cold and I burry my face in your scarf. My friends are showered with flowers and promises. They wonder where you are. I do too and curse your name. My tears flood my room and the moonlight fades. Your name tastes bitter.


March. I am red. I light cigarette after cigarette, knowing how much you hate the smoke. I picture you saving my tired lungs and planting flowers on my chest once more. The phone rings again but I have grown and know better. I wonder if you think of me, I wonder why I still do. I see your friend on the street, we speak of you. He tells me your eyes grew sad. I light one more.


April. I am blue. Like the eyes that meet my own. He kisses me, but I think of you. He tastes different and he does not keep me warm. I feel nothing, I feel numb. Brown is still my favourite colour but I cannot find it in his ocean. The snow has melted away my tears, but I can still feel myself slipping away. I am torn between absent onyx and present azure. You call my phone…


May. I am white. I am older and have turned a new page. Don’t get me wrong, I am still as confused as ever and your name is still on my lips despite our short lived romance, but I’ve moved on, don’t you mind. I can feel my heart like it’s still breaking and stains might appear once in a while on the white canvas of my new-found home, but I’ve closure. I’ve loved and I’ve lost, I’ve grown and learned. I love myself once more.
