Mccartney Held Harrison's Hand On Deathbed

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY held GEORGE HARRISON's hand as he lay dying and the pair reminisced about their days in THE BEATLES.
MCCartney reveals he shared jokes with Harrison as the guitarist slowly lost his battle with terminal cancer, in November 2001.
The rocker says, "It's funny, even at the height of our friendship - as guys - you would never hold hands. But it was lovely.
"I sat with him for a few hours when he was in treatment just outside New York. He was about 10 days away from death, as I recall. He was very poorly.
"But it was lovely, really lovely, and the years just stripped back. It was good, it was like we were dreaming.
"He was my little baby brother, almost, because I'd known him that long."

Paul: "George was my baby brother". Bvadr! No: Paul was the baby brother to George - at least spiritually.

"ALL THINGS MUST PASS" George left this earth to ETERNAL LIFE. Sad for us that loved him and his music, but he lives in utopia with MY SWEET LORD. It was good to hear that George and Paul had a spiritual and friendly farewell.
