I, Me, Mine is the closest we will come to George Harrison’s autobiography. Featuring Harrison in conversation with The Beatles spokesperson, Derek Taylor, it touches on everything from early Beatlemania to India and Ravi Shankar to his love of gardening. The lyrics to his songs, in his own hand, are accompanied by his uniquely intimate and humorous commentary.
USA, February 1964.
Ringo Starr: "Pensive George. You should count the number of times we bought that heavy corduroy overcoat. We would always buy things in fours. It was snowing in Washington and it was freezing. We travelled down the East Coast, from New York to Washington, and finally to Florida, where it was warm."
