George and I talked about Lou Christie and some of the other songs that were in the Top Ten at the time. It was as interesting to them to hear my views about what was going on with the American performers, just as it was for me to hear their input.
George Harrison, just to show you where their heads were at, couldn’t wait to get back home, because he felt it was integral that he practice his guitar some more after these life tours. He was not satisfied with where he was at as a musician yet. I mean, imagine someone in their position thinking they weren’t good enough at the time.
