On this Six-Pack episode, friends of the show Brian Joyce and Mr Brian Jacobs join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to share some wonderful songs from George Harrison. We talk about George’s lifelong journey of faith, how he approached his death in song, which is his most “rocking” song, his creative friendship with Bob Dylan, his view on the Beatles post-breakup, how his lyrics can lift us up in these particularly challenging times we’re all experiencing, how we might learn lessons from George in how we view our own faults and mortality, and so much more. This one gets deep, and it’s very well worth it.

We have some solo songs, some Beatles songs, a live clip, and much more. This one is heavy on the drum talk, as Lee and Corey are both drummers, but it’s accessible and a fun listen for everyone. Lee (who has performed as a Ringo in a Beatles tribute for 10+ years) sits behind his kit to demonstrate some Ringo-isms, including his famous side-to-side hi-hat shuffle. We even have a bit of name that tune. which is a total blast. Plus Corey shares his deep familial connection to Ringo’s drumming and the best song ever, truly. All fun, all lovely, all Ringo.
