WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY CHATS
Celebrating the recent 30th Anniversary release of “All Things Must Pass” album, George Harrison will embark on his first experience with online chats by participating in two 30-minute chats on Thursday, February 15th, 2001. The first one will begin at 8:00 PM Eastern/5:00 PM Pacific on Yahoo!Chat, located at chat.yahoo.com, and the second at 9:00 PM Eastern/6:00 PM Pacific on MSN Live, located at www.msn.com. For a direct link to the chat log onto allthingsmustpass.com.
George took special interest in his website. Designed by @radicalmedia.com, the designers worked closely with the Harrison family to build this rich media showcase of Harrison’s experiences, humor, and unique sense of imagination. Users are invited to explore Harrison’s world via quirky animations and rich media showcases. The artwork features the elements from both the original 1971 cover as well as the 2001 version. Fans will recognize Harrison’s garden gnomes, who playfully roam through each of the sections on the site, including: “George Harrison”, where one can learn more about the musician; “All Things Must Pass”, where one can browse through album-related documents and view online videos for the songs “Let It Down” and “What Is Life?”; “The Daily Bread”, where one can view unique items from Harrison’s personal archive; “Cyril’s Rare Guitar Shop”, a look at Harrison’s guitar collection; and “Fun Stuff”, where one can find various digital souvenirs.
“Websites for me are still new territory,” said George Harrison. “I still don’t really know what they are supposed to do. But it was fun thinking of ideas and seeing them put together on the screen. I hope people enjoy it”.
