Even though George was two years younger than Paul, They got along great. George and Paul took the same bus to school every morning together and talked about music. When Paul met John, they started a band called the Quarrymen. Paul asked George to join but the others thought he was too young. So young George hung out with the guys and also followed John lennon around. George that John was the greatest and tried to be like him. When he got a little older, he joined Paul and John's other band: Johnny and the Moondogs

"After 'Norwegian Wood', I met Ravi Shankar at a friend's house in London, for dinner. He offered to give me instructions in the basics of the sitar, like how to sit, how to hold it, and the basic exercises. It was the first time I had ever really learned music with a bit of discipline. Then I started to listen to Indian music for the next two years, and hardly touched the guitar, except for recordings. Having all these material things, I wanted something more. And it happened that at just the time I wanted it, it came to me in the form of Ravi Shankar, Indian music, and the whole Indian philosophy."

Press (to George): Did you write "Ringo's Theme"? George: No, did you? You haven't been reading the little bits of paper, have you, that says who writes "Ringo's Theme"?

Press: Don't you ever get a haircut? George: I had one yesterday. Ringo: You should have seen him the day before.

***** if there is anything that is wrong, let me know. George is the one Beatle I don't have a lot of info on.******
