GEORGE HARRISON'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATED IN HOLLYWOOD TOMORROW

George Harrison will be remembered at a public birthday celebration on
Wednesday, February 25, 2009 from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM in front of:
Capitol Records Tower Building
1750 N. Vine Street
(An earlier report of another address in Hollywood was incorrect.)
Fans of George Harrison are invited to bring flowers and birthday message cards to place around the star, and to participate in a birthday cake cutting ceremony to remember and honor the late legendary singer, songwriter and Beatles member.
Live and taped George Harrison and Beatles songs will be played at the event, and fans are invited to perform their own music, poetry and spoken word tributes. Radio host Chris Carter of Breakfast With the Beatles www.breakfastwiththebeatles.com/ on 95.5 KLOS in Los Angeles will lead the children at the event in lighting the candles and cutting the specially decorated cake.
In addition, during the ceremony, a mock foam-board Walk of Fame Star for George that a Beatles fan has made will be placed next to John Lennon's star, in hope that an official star for George will be installed next to or near John's star sometime soon. John's star has been in front of the Capitol Records building in Hollywood since Sept. 28, 1988.
Capitol Records had a "Star unveiling" for George Harrison in front of the Capitol Records
building on the 7-year anniversary of his death (November 29, 2008). The George Harrison
Star is pictured next to John Lennon's Star, which is visible in the picture. It is smaller
than the John Lennon's Star. The George Harrison Star has not yet become "official."
The photo was taken the day of the celebration.
George Harrison was born February 25, 1943 in the Hunts Cross area of Liverpool and passed away on November 29, 2001 in Los Angeles after a long bout with cancer.
