What do you think happens to people after they die?
Well, what do you think happens to people when they go home and they take their suit off? That’s what I think—your body falls off, but you’ve still got two others bodies, fortunately. This is how I see it; this thing they call the soul. In the Bible, I think Jesus said there are three cages for the Bird of Paradise. And the Bird of Paradise is this soul, this perfect thing that has its own identity, and then the three cages are these three bodies. One body is called the causal body, the next body is called the astral body and the third is called the gross physical body. So death is only relative to birth—if you don’t wanna die, you don’t get born. But as long as you’re born, you’ve got to die, because just as sure as nighttime is gonna follow daytime, death is gonna follow birth. Like bob Dylan said, "Look out kid, it’s something you did. God knows when, but you’re doing it again." So what happens is your body falls off. Gets tired or for whatever reason, and you’re now in your astral body, which is much more subtle and is made of light. Then, just like on your radio, where you can change the frequency without turning the dial, there’s a whole ’nother thing happening there. And that’s what it’s like: all these different levels are all right here, but they’re all vibrating on different frequencies. So death is just where your suit falls off and now you’re in your other suit. But you can’t see it on this level, so it’s all right. Don’t worry.
That's from a 1987 interview J. Kordosh conducted. George, the quiet Beatle, was riding high on his album Cloud Nine.
I think if people had realized how few albums were left, they would have been kinder. That wasn't a bad album and, in many ways, is probably my favorite Harrison solo album. "Devil's Radio" remains a stand out track. This was his last solo studio album.
My favorite Ringo album is Beaucoups of Blues. For Paul it would be Ram or Band On The Run.
Everything except 1975's Rock 'n' Roll. I've never been able to get behind that album of covers. But I love everything other album John did.
Favorite Beatles album? Abbey Road.
