#deliverydiaries #4thofjuly edition #protip: just discovered that the 6th street bridge over the LA river offers the BEST view off all the fireworks around DTLA (pro+amateur). It’s a 360 view of the city and I was literally engulfed in fireworks from ALL parts of LA, and I’ve never seen ANYTHING like it. It’s just fucking gorgeous, and only 2 families on the entire bridge enjoying it all… #iloveLA (at 6th Street Bridge)
"We tried to record it, but John and Paul were so used to just cranking out their tunes that it was very difficult at times to get serious and record one of mine. It wasn’t happening. They weren’t taking it seriously and I don’t think they were even all playing on it, and so I went home that night thinking, ‘Well, that’s a shame,’ because I knew the song was pretty good.
The next day I was driving into London with Eric Clapton, and I said, ‘What are you doing today? Why don’t you come to the studio and play on this song for me?’ He said, ‘Oh, no - I can’t do that. Nobody’s ever played on a Beatles record and the others woulnd’t like it.’ I said, ‘Look, it’s my song and I’d like you to play on it.’
So he came in. I said, ‘Eric’s going to play on this one,’ and it was good because that then made everyone act better. Paul got on the piano and played a nice intro and they all took it more seriously.” - George Harrison
