Thank you very much. It's an honor to be here for George. Forty-one years ago, George made a solo trip to the United States. On his return to England, he said "They have everything over there, why do they need us?" Well it seems that we did need them. It was maybe because at the heart of every young energic group there was much laughter and love as there was talent. They might have been merge as the fab four from the 'Ed Sullivan Show' but within a few years their transformation into mystical messengers of peace, love, and higher consciousness was pretty much complete. What sustains our feeling for them? I think it's because they and their music only uplifted and enlighten that in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make. It's certainly been a privilege in my life to know them. I love you George. Thank you very much on behalf from Dhani and I, all of the family. Thank you.
