George Harrison and Chet

Postby cbtm59 » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:23 pm

Just recently came across this really charming Smithsonian magazine article about George Harrison visiting his sister in the US for two weeks in 1963, a few months before Beatlemania exploded in the US. No one in this small Illinois town knew who he was at the time. Two different people that George spent some time with during the visit specifically remember 50+ years later how much Harrison thought of Chet. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-cul ... 180974593/

I knew that George Harrison admired Chet but I didn't know about his trip to the US before he was famous.
