An online Beatles fan club for and about Beatle fans
"Let John go down first. He's the one they want." George Harrison on landing at (I think) Houston, Texas? It wasn't this trip but 2 years later in the 'more popular than Jesus' debacle in 1966, but it fits this photo well. I love GH's witticism becuase it's typically rough and sharp Liverpool irony. Can't recall the source interview or even who was interviewed, either GH himself or Neil Aspinal I think. Was it on Beatles Anthology outtake interviews on the Special Features disc? Or in The Beatles Anthology book? Maybe someone can enlighten on a source for GH's great Scouse remark on touchdown: "Let John go down first. He's the one they want." I'm dead certain about the quotation, verbatim, but I just can't recall the source.
