IN GEORGE'S WORDS! Quotes! These first ones come from a Playgirl interview in 1988. (I will gladly forward the article by email with the entire answers to these questions & comments below. Just email me!) Next, I will just give you some random quotes. `````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` 1) Answering if it is true that he is a recluse? Not really. I just decided I wanted some sort of private life after years of living in a goldfish bowl, so I kept a low profile and didn't do a TV talk show every minute. 2) Did John's death scare George? Yeah, and I still don't like being out in public. 3) Has it taken you a long time to recover from being a Beatle? Yeah, I was just reeling after all those years. To tell you the truth, I haven't been to a record store - or any store much - for over 25 years. It's just something you couldn't do for so long that in the end you forgot how to doit. 4)What happens when a fan spots you on the street? Do you panic? Yeah, I don't like it. Some are calm & reasonable, but that's where the thing about John kicks in - "Hey, Mr. Lennon will you sign this?" That creep. (George looks angry & disgusted) It's hard because you shouldn't judge everybody by one person. But, it was so nasty that it makes me very wary of fans, especially ones in crowds like at the Prince's Trust. There was one guy out in front of me who was so fanatical that it was scary. It's just not normal. I mean I'm a fan of some people but you don't lose your brain when you see 'em or meet 'em. 5) Such enormous fame must take it's toll on relationships? I think so because of all the extra pressures you're under. 6)Do you feel left behind with the current music scene? In a way, but sometimes you want to be left behind. I still prefer the old rock-and-roll stations, and I still think the old Beatles albums sound good. 7) Do you see Paul much? Now and again, cause he lives a long way frm me. But, we're all friends now. 8) Would you ever tour again? I dunno. People keep asking me, but I'm not mad keen about the idea. 9)Besides gradening, what do you do in your spare time? I tend to still be a big auto racing fan though I watch it more on TV these days. Basically, my hobby is still writing songs. And, I like being in different places, but I hate traveling. 10) Do you have any vices? Not really. The worst is smoking. 11) What about drugs? Are you straight now? Oh, yeah. 12) You were always the mystical Beatle. Are you still very religous? Yeah, but now I just keep it to myself. It's still what I believe in, though, that we're looking for inner peace & knowledge. 13) Have you ever considered retiring? No, not yet.
