Assorted George/Ringo news

Whenever I do these news updates about the individual Beatles, they're almost always concerned with just John or Paul. This is unfortunate. There are two other Beatles, after all. And though George and Ringo don't generate the level of news that their counterparts do, they still merit more mentions than I afford them. Here, I hope, is a step in the right direction.


- "On October 19, Dark Horse Records will release Collaborations, a limited-edition 3 CD/1 DVD set of music by George Harrison and his mentor, Indian master musician Ravi Shankar, recorded over a period of twenty years." (Here's the link.)

- Read all about "Isn't It a Pity."

- Olivia Harrison is upset (and it seems justified).

- This is rather old news: A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Gilbert Lederman, the doctor who treated George's cancer. The suit is not about George's death.


- A man in full.

- "How cool is Ringo? Here are some reminders."

- The house which Ringo was born in is under threat of demolition.
