Joe Brown, whose Bruvvers shared bills with the Beatles in the early 1960s and who performed at the Concert for George tribute recalls his friendship with George Harrison:
“What we had in common was that neither of us was a musical snob. Music was music and if it came from the heart, it was good. We liked music that went way back – like George Formby, Hoagy Carmichael. Real music.” What made George Harrison such a true friend? “Ukuleles!” says Joe. “We both love ukuleles. George ended up as my best man and he certainly was an’ all. He was a wonderful friend and I miss him every day."
