The Falcon arrives at Cloud City. The shooting of the scene was delayed after Carrie Fisher felt unwell following a night with Eric Idle, Harrison Ford and The Rolling Stones drinking a beverage called Tunisian Table Cleaner discovered by Idle during the filming of Life Of Brian. The party atmosphere spilled into the shoot. “Billy Dee (Williams) would say dirty things,” said Fisher. “I would say them right back. He said something unmentionable when he kissed my hand.”

“I’m not really as serious as people think. Or have thought. Yeah they always thought that I was the “Serious One”. But really that is kind of a mask to hide the mad man inside of me. Which is really like a Monty Python lunatic.” - George, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame video

George Harrison and Eric Clapton, onstage in Japan, December 1991.

The tour began on 1 December 1991.

“I finished the year by touring Japan with George Harrison. He and Olivia had been really kind to me over the last few months [following the tragic death of his son], and I wanted to express my gratitude.” - Eric Clapton, Eric Clapton: The Autobiography

“I never really was in that touring mode, and occasionally people would ask me, like when I’d do interviews for an album, ‘Oh, have you thought about touring?’ It was in the books, really, but Eric brought it in by saying that everywhere he was touring - the year before last he went all over the world - people would keep asking him, ‘Where’s George? What’s he doing? Why doesn’t he do some shows?’ So it kind of got Eric to ask me.

And then he said, ‘Well, you know, if you wanted to do something the end of this year, me and the band are free, and we could back you up. It would save you all the hassle of thinking of who to get in your band, and all that.’

I just thought about it for a while, and of course the other thing that happened between him telling me about this was when his boy Conor got killed. And then I saw him a bit more often last year [1991] than I would have normally done, because he was home and because of that. I think after that happened he’d wanted to busy himself a bit.

I kept thinking that it was a good opportunity for me, plus I think he really was looking toward doing something, although he’d taken time off.

I’d actually turned it down! I thought a lot about it, and then I sent his manager a fax saying, ‘Thanks for the great offer but I don’t think so.’ Then I just swam around my swimming pool and I was thinking, ‘Ahh, I shoulda really done it, ‘cause it doesn’t feel any good not doing it. I’m free of the burden of not doing it, but I’ll never know what it was like.’

So I phoned him up again, and I said, ‘If you haven’t already canceled it, I will do it!’ ‘Cause I really needed something to jerk myself out of a rut.” - George Harrison, Goldmine, 27 November 1992

For: Anon

Imagine: Accidentally being pushed into Eric’s lap in the middle of the cafeteria.

This has other parts with the same OCs Part 1

You run your hand through your hair as you walk across the cafeteria after a long day of work. Some people give you nods of greeting while others cower away, being a Dauntless leader meant that you were well respected, but at the same time you evoked a sense of fear with many members of you faction.

Your friend Victoria, a woman with striking black and lavender hair who was a few years older than you, waved at you from the leader’s table, at the end of the cafeteria. She, along with the remaining leaders, Eric, Max, Harrison, and Jared, a kind, blue-haired boy who was your age, had already began eating. You watched Eric, who was a year older than you, deep in conversation with Harrison, he seemed to be having a civilized debate, that’s one of the countless things you loved about Eric; his passion for knowledge. Of course you had the biggest crush on him, as a fellow leader, you learned that Eric was not actually a bad guy and the two of you were actually really good friends. You considered yourself to be pretty a confident and fiery woman but whenever Eric was around that would all falter, you were in love with him, you have been for three years now but he didn’t know and you didn’t have the guts to tell him.

You were so lost in your thoughts about the blonde leader that you didn’t notice how close were to him until you felt someone bump into you, hard, you fell. You heard yourself let out a little shriek; however, to your surprise the landing wasn’t that hard. You let out a sigh of relief, your eyes still shut, when you heard a few giggles, you open your eyes and see yourself seating directly in Eric’s lap.

You feel your face burn up, while Victoria and Jared are shamelessly laughing, and Max and Harrison sit smiling, the rest of the faction stares in awe, waiting to see Eric’s reaction. You slowly turn only to see how close your faces actually are, you realize how smug his expression is, he is clearly enjoying the sight of embarrassment on your face, this only makes you blush harder.

“I wouldn’t have saved you a seat if I had known you’d get so comfortable in Eric’s lap sweetie,” Victoria smirks, you glare at her, unable to form words, realization that you had been sitting in Eric’s lap for quite some time suddenly strikes you and you attempt to get up. Eric instantly grabs you waist pulling you back down, most of the faction had turned away from you at this point, but your table was still watching intently.

You look back at him confused.

“Stay,” He commands, and then whispers, “I don’t mind.”

“It looks like Eric has no problem with her being there Vic,” Jared laughs, then winks while saying, “But I mean who would.”

Jared had a habit of shamelessly flirting with you, and even though it didn’t mean anything to either of you, it bothered Eric to no ends, as soon as those words left Jared’s mouth, Eric’s jaw clenched and his hands squeezed you in closer.

You finally decide to let whatever was happening happen and you relaxed into Eric, absolutely sure that the two of you would have an intense conversation about whatever this was after dinner.

Masterlist // Rules List // To-Do List

George’s nicknames appreciation post, prompted by a previous ask:

  • Hazza (In 1958, when John, Paul and George hung out together very frequently and had nicknames for each other: Lennie, Macca and Hazza, as Mark Lewisohn states in All These Years: here)
  • Hari
  • Georgie [x] (The other three Beatles can be heard calling him that in interviews [for instance, x], Astrid Kirchherr, Klaus Voormann and Jürgen Vollmer refer to it, and Paul as relatively recently as 2005 [x]. George also signed at least one letter to Astrid that way [x]; and it’s also what Ken Mansfield recalls as George’s telegram code name [the other three are Jock, Porgie and Richie, as he remembers, x!])
  • Carl Harrison (Well, not a nickname per se, but George’s chosen stage name for the May 1960 Johnny Gentle tour of Scotland)
  • Geo, a nickname used by his mother Louise (Recalled by Arthur Kelly, in The Beatles - All These Years: Tune In’s extended version… pronounced “Joe.”)
  • The Beautiful One (What the Hamburg exis nicknamed George in 1960, x)
  • George Gretsch, as fans took to calling him after he’d purchased his beloved second-hand Gretsch Duo Jet in 1961 [x]
  • According to the New York Post’s 20 September 1964 issue, he was “called ‘The Bloody Sphinx’ by John Lennon and 'The Great Stone Face’ by Ringo Starr.” [x]
  • When George, Pattie, John and Cyn went on their May 1964 vacation to Tahiti, etc., code names were created for them, as Brian Epstein recounted in A Cellarful of Noise; George’s was Mr. Hargreaves (as in, his father, Harold Hargreaves Harrison).
  • Jack Lumber (George’s clearly Monty Python fanatic pseudonym for “hotels, security (and guitar picks),” as Eric Idle recalls x; when traveling with Olivia in the 1970’s and 1980’s, it was often as “Mr. and Mrs. Jack Lumber”.)
  • “[My] ‘L’Angelo Mysterioso’ credit [for playing on the co-written ‘Badge’] must have been thought up by Eric [Clapton]. I just saw it on the back of the album when it came! In those days, of course, if you played on anybody else’s album or even one track, EMI used to get funny about it, thinking, ‘Oh, the fabulous Beatles publishing catalogue,’ and try claiming royalties on it. So if we did that we always had to make up names. Ravi Shankar used to put on ’Hari Georgeson’ or ’Jai Raj Harisein.’ John [Lennon] preferred ‘George Harrisong.’” - George, Musician, November 1987
  • “[M]y Indian name for him was ’Jáyaraj.’” - Ravi Shankar, Concert for George, 29 November 2002
  • Arthur Wax, George O’Hara, George O’Hara-Smith, Onothimagen, P. Roducer, Nelson Wilbury, Spike Wilbury…for album credits, and in the case of Ohnothimagen, album promo.
  • When George, Olivia and Dhani stayed one night at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, on 28 October 1982, they had reservations under the name ‘Mr and Mrs Tannerhill’ (according to The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001).
  • “[In Hawaii, George was known to locals] “simply as Keoki.” [x]… it’s also one of Dhani’s tattoos: xx.
  • On 14 December 1984, George appeared on stage as a surprise guest with Deep Purple in Sydney, introduced as ‘Arnold Grove from Liverpool’ (a pseudonym he also used for hotels; as well as Rick Veda).
  • Once more for guitar picks, Sir Edmund Wilbury and Nakihama Wilbury (the latter during the 1991 Japan tour) [x]
  • While undergoing cancer treatment Stateside, George apparently checked in under the alias Jorge Arias, a nickname he also used on other occasions (x).
