Scans - George Harrison and Astrid Kirchherr

“George was always my favourite, his kindness and his wit. He was just a wonderful person and whenever I was in trouble, like with money and things, he was always looking after me and he invited me a couple of times to London and later on to Henley. I just miss him terribly because he was like a little guardian angel for me, I feel like I am in a way lost without him.” - Astrid Kirchherr, A Retrospective

"…Astrid was so loving; she’d take us home and feed us. She helped us a lot, even just to let us have a bath. Astrid was twenty-two at that time, and I was seventeen; she seemed so much older than me, and so grown up…" - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

"

The Beatles summed up everything for me during my late 20s. It was the time of Vidal Sassoon haircuts, mini skirts and the new-look make-up. Their music was such a big influence on my life. It said everything about the era. They were irreverent and exuberant, stylish and fun.

I was particularly fortunate because they were often in my shop on the King’s Road in Chelsea. John Lennon, who I must confess was my favourite, bought one of his trademark caps from me. George Harrison and his wife Pattie were regulars and The Beatles’ girlfriends modelled for us all over America.

"So yes, I don’t think you should exclude people from friendship just because they are famous. Too discriminate against them for that would seem to be wrong, and I would have missed out on some of my most valued friends. For example the great and good George Harrison (Boing!) who taught me more of what life in and out of showbiz is about, than any philosopher. An awareness of death is what George taught, not in a bad or down way, but in a don’t waste your time on worthless shit your days are numbered kind of way."

"What I miss about Liverpool is the people’s humour. Everybody’s a comedian and I like that. I am a comedian too."

"It’s great that our own home town should do this for us, but deep down I’ve got a feeling that there are a lot of Liverpool folk who deserve this honour far more than we do, after all what have we done, sung some songs around the place and made money. It doesn’t seem much compared with some things that have been done by many Liverpool men and women who’ve never been honoured." - George Harrison to a Liverpool newspaper prior to The Beatles’ civic reception in their home town of Liverpool, 10 July 1964
"The best moment for me was when we were going into the theatre and I saw six girls who used to come and sit on the front row when we appeared at the Cavern, it was wonderful to see them there." - George Harrison after the civic reception
