KEEP WELL, BEATLE GEORGE

It was revealed on May 3rd that the little Beatle George Harrison has undergone surgery to remove a growth from one of his lungs. George had a 4-hour operation on March 21st at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and is now recovering on holiday in Tuscany, Italy with his wife Olivia.

The statement from Harrison’s office says: “He is in the best of spirits and on top form, the most relaxed and free since the attack on him in December 1999”.

Let’s hope that it’s not the story about George having cancer continues and wish Harrison all the best.

Still no news about the promised new album as well as re-issue program.
