"I really like George." - Bob Dylan to Chris O’Dell, 1975; Miss O’Dell: Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, and Eric Clapton
"George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?"
"If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody." - Bob Dylan, NME, 2007
"[George] was also Bob Dylan’s biggest fan. He could quote the lyrics to practically any Dylan song you could come up with." - Jim Keltner, Rolling Stone, 2002
"George quoted Bob like people quote Scripture. Bob really adored George, too." - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 2002
"He’s fantastic, you know. There’s not a lot of people in the world who I see from a historical point of view. Five hundred years grom now, looking back in history, I think he will still be the man, Bob, he just takes the cake." - George Harrison, 1987
"I’ve always liked the way George Harrison plays guitar-restrained and good." - Bob Dylan
"They had a soul connection." - Olivia Harrison on George and Bob, Rolling Stone, 2011
"He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all the humanity, all the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the commen sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men.
He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon, and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.” - Bob Dylan on George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 2002
