From the 2003 released DVD booklet

In life's usual strange way, it seemed that George had to leave before this particular gathering could have happened. It was an exotic sound stage, the music, culture, and friendship of East and West mingling; new to some, but to George a way of life.

Each note and lyric of George's songs was treated with reverence and, of course, his words became constant dialogue to us. Especially lines like,

Beware of sadness, it can hit you, it can hurt you
Make you sore and what is more
That is not what you are here for

So we tried not to be sad, but instead celebrate the life and music of a great artiste, the beautiful 'quiet' one from Liverpool who became a man of many words as well as worlds, a wise and conveted friend, father, and seeker who transcended the distractions of success and fame to maintain a one-pointed focus upon his goal of spiritual awakening. He did all this while entertaining the world and having an equal measure of fun along the way
