    Go to his website, he does an amazing rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner". Looks like it was for a recent All-Star Game.

    It's really cool when you remember that Harrison walked around his house playing a uke all the time.

    OK, here is the next wild musical trip. The Flute guy is definitely talented. Love the Night Rider theme.

    I have to admit the title of this thread intrigued me since it is based on my favorite Beatle tune. Sort of liked the Beatles (yes I'm old enough to remember them playing at Shea Stadium and no I wasn't there), but really liked the George Harrison tunes best.

    I can't help but wonder how many beers he had (see the cooler in the background?) before trying to play that. Awesome job but still gotta wonder.
