St Martin In The Fields, London
As a Liverpudlian teenager I never imagined that one day I would be singing, laughing and crying side by side with the Martin, McCartney, Harrison, Star and Lennon families as we all said goodbye to our much loved friend George. As I queued with Elton to leave he turned to me and his friends from Pink Floyd and Dire Straights: 'We were with George again today.', I slipped away alone in agony and ecstasy as the dark skies' torrential tears joined mine. Forgive the blue prose but that day I lived the 'Blues'.
