Ah George is surely missed. One of my favorite albums is All Things Must Pass.

Would've love to heard Derek and George do an album together.

George was a great writer and solid guitar player. Probably my favorite Beatle in the early 1960's. Here Comes The Sun is a masterpiece.

His vocal on covers like Chains, ROBeethoven, Devil in her Heart, ETTBMy Baby....
Donít Bother Me, & HJTDWYou are two of their great early rockers
& right thru....all his songs were gems - Think For Yourself, Taxman, I Want To Tell You
Right thru to Long Long Long, Old Brown Shoe, the ARoad stuff......
ATMPass is a crowning achievement at any musical level - & all his later stuff

ETTB? HJTDWY??

I know Beatles and George as well as anyone and those acronyms aren't leaping out at me.

Miss George too.

I just.discovered a mysterious George project from.1968 - called "Wonderwall Music". Weird heavy electronic processing, soundtrack to a film "Wonderwall", strange, way out sound, fun listen - would like to see the film somehow:

First solo effort by a beatle - also the very first record released by Apple Records.

If I remember correctly, Clapton played on quite a few tunes on All things must pass.
They co-wrote one of my favorite tunes Badge during that time frame.

George is greatly missed. His songwriting and playing, in my opinion have been underrated. His slide playing is as unmistakable as Derek's. My wife and I listen to George throughout his career regularly. Thank you George!

Badge is a great tune
George's contribution to that one is unmistakable
