George Harrison Didn’t Want A Beatles Reunion, And It Was The Fans’ Fault
After The Beatles broke up in 1970, things were very turbulent between the band members. They argued, disagreed over the music, and endured legal battles. So naturally, when they each started working on their own music separately, they felt comfortable writing solo. But that didn’t stop fans from wanting the Fab Four to reunite. George Harrison was totally against this idea.
In 1986, Harrison appeared on an Australian television news show, where he was asked about the possibility of a reunion between the three stars (by this time, John Lennon had been assassinated six years earlier).
He explained, “It’s better to leave it as it was. With all those good memories and the records are there. You know, you don’t want to see three old men limping across the stage pretending to be the Fab Four.”
The Quiet Beatle expressed the same opinion in 1974 when asked about the idea of getting back together, just four years after the initial split.
And in that outburst, he blamed only The Beatles fans: “I can understand that The Beatles did nice things and it’s appreciated that people continue to like them. The problem comes when they want to live in the past, when they want to cling to something. The people are afraid of change.
“People used us as an excuse to stumble,” Harrison said. “And we fell victim to that. That’s why they want the Beatles to carry on, so everyone can goof off again. But they don’t have our well-being in mind when they say, ‘We’re going to have the Fab Four again.'” . .’”
Things got even more stressful for Harrison in 1987 when he was invited to perform at the Prince’s Trust Concert.
I was unaware at the time that Ringo Starr had also been recruited for the event.
“I felt right away that someone was trying to set this up again,” Harrison said. control it”.
However, there was a Beatles reunion of sorts a decade later. In 1994, Harrison, Starr, and Paul McCartney reunited to shoot new footage for their next project The Beatles Anthology.
Together, they sat down and chatted about the old days before playing a few songs together.
“It was just two acoustic guitars and me with the brushes,” Starr said. He also confirmed that the band played snippets of the songs Raunchy, Thinking of Linking and Blue Moon of Kentucky.
