Last night I watched Martin Scorsese’s documentary “George Harrison: Living in a Material World.” It was a three-and-a-half hour long intimate look at George’s public and private life.

Greetings from… America! Yes, I am home. I honestly can’t believe how quickly four weeks go by. I woke up in the middle of the night last night and was really confused where I was. At one point I thought, “This duvet cover looks familiar… am I home?” But as they say, all good things […]
