I watched the „Concert For George“ yesterday. Definitely the most sad and beautiful and amazing concert ever. It’s so heart warming to see all his friends came together performing his songs, paying tribute to him and let the entire world know that they loved him and what a kind person he was.
The highlights for me were Ringo’s “Photograph”, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “My Sweet Lord”, surely that wonderful performance of “Something” and the closing song “I'll See You in My Dreams” played by Joe Brown… OMG… (*ok, pull yourself together!*) But wasn’t ever single song a breathtaking homage?
Unfortunately I ‘only’ saw a videotape that runs about an hour. (though I'm happy I have that at least). I suspect I missed some good stuff. Surely the performance of the Monty Python members :-( I really have to buy the DVD some day (soon). If it only wasn’t that expensive… But it’s worth it, isn’t it? I hope it is complete there anyway…
