George Harrison: “What happens when you die? That’s the only thing of any importance. . .

. . . The rest is all secondary. . . We’re being barraged by bullshit.”

I spent last night entranced with Martin Scorsese’s 2011 two part documentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, a film that gathers more and more interest as it chronicles Harrison’s transformative journey through life. After nearly three hours, I’m still watching. He died on November 29, 2001, of lung cancer. Afterwards, his family issued a statement: “He left this world as he lived in it, conscious of God, fearless of death, and at peace, surrounded by family and friends.”

This morning, I marvel at what turned out to be his final televised interview, in 1997, (uploaded on September 8, 2011), as well as a spontaneous performance of three songs (on part 4), including one that he had never sung in public before: “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.”
