“I have a tendency to defend Paul - John and Ringo too - if anyone else said anything without qualification about them.” - George Harrison, NME, 11 December 1976 [x]

“But actually, I love Paul, he’s my mate and it doesn’t matter what I say in the papers, they’re not going to get much mileage out of that one.” - George Harrison on the media reports of a supposed feud between himself and Paul McCartney, 27 February 1988 [x]

“[George] looked up to John so much. He said, ‘Oh, John would be a Wilbury in a  second.’ He’d say about Paul, ‘Paul is a year older than me, and he still is.’ But he really loved Paul, too. And he really loved Ringo.” - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 17 January 2002

“‘I remember being on a Chris Evans thing, Thank God It’s Friday or something,’ Paul McCartney tells me on the phone as he drives through London on a warm May afternoon. ‘Chris said during the interview, “So what about George? He’s a bit of an old hippy, isn’t he? All this Hare Krishna…” And it was like, “You thickhead. No, actually: George is very cool. All that stuff, just because you don’t believe it, it doesn’t mean it isn’t cool.” And I’m sure Chris Evans has totally revised his opinion of George, as have a lot of people, because he was effin’ brilliant.’” - Uncut, August 2008 [x]

“Tommy Nutter dressed three out of the four Beatles for the Abbey Road album cover. True to his non-conformist roots, George Harrison opted to dress in denim.” - “Rebel Tailor Tommy Nutter | The Legendary Savile Row Strutter,” The Selvedge Yard, 4 April 2012

“Well, I dressed them. George Harrison is wearing denim - he was always a tricky bugger.” - Tommy Nutter to Timothy Everest, quoted in Yorkshire Post, 31 October 2015
