Den tolfte semesterdagen för beatlarna på Tahiti och Jungfruöarna
Den här dagen kunde ha slutat illa för George Harrison!
Chris Hutchins, journalist på musiktidningen New Musical Express berättar:
George Harrison told me this:“ While we were in the Caribbean, John and I tried all kinds of sports we never knew we wanted to try. Once we went water skiing. I was already heading for the shore, and the boatman naturally turned towards the open ocean, but he did it too late, and before I knew what was happening, I saw myself sliding over the top of a razor-sharp coral that was almost at the surface of the water. … I’m afraid to even think what would have happened if the water level had been an inch lower. I would be cut into strips! I will say that it was the most unpleasant moment in my life. ” In fact, George will have the scar of his vacation for a long time to come. Harpooning a fish with razor-sharp fins, he threw it ashore, but the fin cut his hand and cut deep into his thumb. ”It hurts, I can tell you,” he said, showing me a deep scar on the inside of his thumb.
