I, Me, Mine : New Introduction by Olivia Harrison
'Ever since the war I have thought about gathering the bits of paper with my song lyrics scattered around and about. Two drunkards cornered me in a hotel room near Heathrow Airport in July 1977 and showed me that if I did find the lyrics, they could be bound into a nice book...It was to have been called THE BIG LEATHER JOB but became known as I, ME MINE' George Harrison, Somewhere in England In conversation with lifelong friend and confidant Derek Taylor, (George's first-person text is interspersed with Derek's fascinating observations and explanations) George describes his upbringing, his first forays with the band, the hard life on the road before they began to make money, the extraordinary phenomenon of Beatlemania and what it was like to be trapped in the middle of it, his spiritual reawakening in India, his love of fast cars and his passion for gardening. There are 50 archival photographs from his own albums and the lyrics to over 80 of his songs, many in his own hand, accompanied by his uniquely intimate and humorous commentary.
