Paul McCartney says he talks to late Beatles bandmate George Harrison through a tree


#Paul #McCartney says he stills feels connected to late #Beatles band member #George #Harrison and frequently “talks” to him.

The rocker, 78, revealed he likes to visit and chat to an evergreen coniferous tree that is planted near his #East #Sussex home in #England.

#Harrison gave him the tree before he died in 2001 following a battle with lung cancer. #He was 58 years old.

“#George was very into horticulture, [he was] a really good gardener,” the legendary #Grammy winner told NPR’s #All #Things #Considered. “#He gave me [the] tree as a present. #It’s a big fir tree and it’s by my gate.”

“#As I was leaving my house [on the morning of Dec. 18], I got out of the car close the gate and looked up at the tree and said, ‘#Hi, #George,'” #McCartney described. “There he is, growing strongly… #That takes me back to the time when I hitchhiked with him! [George and John Lennon still have] an ever-present presence.”

The singer-songwriter described the tree as “lovely” and “as the years go by, every time I look at it I go, ‘#That’s the tree #George gave me.’ #George has entered that tree for me. I hope he’s happy with that.”

#McCartney also spoke about being there for #Harrison through his cancer battle.

PAUL MCCARTNEY SAYS HE WAS ‘HURTING TOO MUCH’ TO KEEP THE BEATLES GOING AFTER JOHN LENNON LEFT

“#We were in #New #York before he went to #Los #Angeles to die… #We were sitting there, and I was holding his hand, and it occurred to me – I’ve never told this – I don’t want to hold #George’s hand. #You don’t hold your mate’s hands. I mean, we didn’t anyway,” he detailed.

The entertainer described how #Harrison traveled around the world to try and find a cure and grew tired and frustrated toward the end of his life.

“I remember he was getting a bit annoyed at having to travel all the time – chasing a cure. #He’d gone to #Geneva to see what they could do. Then he came to a special clinic in #New #York to see what they could do. Then the thought was to go to L.A. and see what they could do. #He was sort of getting a bit, ‘Can’t we just stay in one place?’ #And I said, ‘Yes, #Speke #Hall. #Let’s go to #Speke #Hall,” he said.

“#That was one of the last things we said to each other, knowing that he would be the only person in the room who would know what #Speke #Hall (a public garden and estate in #Liverpool) was. #Anyway, the nice thing for me when I was holding #George’s hands, he looked at me, and there was a smile.”
