Paul McCartney And Ringo Starr Attend George Harrison Documentary Premiere
The premiere screening of the George Harrison documentary ‘Living In The Material World’ took place at London’s BFI Southbank on Oct.2, and in a nice show of unity, his former bandmates Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were both there for the launch.
The Beatles widows, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, the latter who is credited as producer on the film, were also in attendance, along with filmmaker Martin Scorsese.
Billboard reported that McCartney told the press, “Every time I see something to do with George it brings back more memories than you would believe. He was my little mate on the school bus. A lot of fond memories. He’s sorely missed by us all.”
The documentary, which is three and a half hours long, is split into two parts, the first half covering the Fab Four years while the second half will focus on Harrison’s solo career and philanthropic work.
The screening also brought out other members of the rock alumni, including the Beatles’ former producer George Martin, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher and Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones.
Five years in the making, this documentary is highly anticipated and as previously reported, will broadcast in the USA on HBO Oct. 5 and Oct. 6 with a video release planned for spring 2012.
