Thread Name: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
Subject: RE: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
This incident hits home because I was caught up in the orginal Beatlemania in '63 and though I was too young to go to concerts, I was old enough to idolize this man and his companions. I feel the same way about the attack on Harrison as I felt about the attack on JKF all those years ago (no pun intended). Why would anyone want to harm him? This is George Harrison here! A man who never hurt anyone and has contributed so much to music. To me, he is still the 'Quiet Beatle' as he was called back then, and although Beatlemania is a thing of the past, I still hold this man in high regard. To suggest that I had anything to do with the attack on him or Lennon is just as absurd as if it were suggested that I contributed as a 10year old to the attack on Kennedy also. If anyone wants to feel responsible for it, feel free, but don't suggest that I would share in that. I would have willingly put myself between him and the knife if I could have.
