    'I don't want to hold George's hand': Sir Paul McCartney reflects on last meeting with Harrison

    Sir Paul McCartney has recalled holding George Harrison's hand in New York as he tried to console the dying Beatle. In an interview with the New York Times, Sir Paul described an emotional meeting shortly before Harrison died of cancer, aged 58, in November 2001. "We were sitting there, and I was holding his hand, and it occurred to me — I’ve never told this — I don’t want to hold George’s hand. You don’t hold your mate’s hands," he said. Harrison saw doctors across the world in the hope of finding a cure and eventually became disillusioned with all the travel. "He’d gone to Geneva to see what they could do. Then he came to a special clinic in New York to see what they could do. Then the thought was to go to L.A. and see what they could do. "He was sort of getting a bit, “Can’t we just stay in one place?” And I said: 'Yes, Speke Hall. Let’s go to Speke Hall.'"
