Not getting George's autograph
Caption: "George (right in 1977) with Elton John's percussionist Ray Cooper when George attended one of Elton's gigs in Paris"
You may have noticed that whenever I see a photo, I like to imagine what is happening in the photograph. This is a great example of that. You see a woman here getting an autograph. However, she is NOT getting the autograph of George Harrison as you would expect. Instead she is getting the autograph of Elton John's percussionist. Hmmm. Here is my guess on this one. She got George to sign for her before the photo was snapped. Then realizing who the person with George was, and not wanting to be rude, she asked Ray Cooper to also sign. Surely she did not leave that opportunity with just Ray Coopers autograph, you think?
Regardless I really like this photo of George. He looks relaxed and happy. I think the mid-1970's were a good time for Mr. Harrison.
