Thread Name: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
Subject: RE: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
Whilst the title of this thread is doubtlessly couched in unfortunate terms, it does raise some salient points.

As a huge Beatles fan, I listen, I read, I hear and I consume gossip about the band, almost 30 years after their demise.

For good or bad, I'm more interested in George Harrison's life than I am with the man or woman who lives a few doors down the street, and certainly those who live a few streets away...

I can understand those who feel agreived by the suggestion that George's stabbing was 'their' fault.

I do however think that you are generally missing 'Germs' point.

If none of us had ever bought a Betles record, George would not have been stabbed today.

Of course, this does not mean that we are personally guilty.
