21 October #1985: #GeorgeHarrison performs at the #CarlPerkins special “Blue Suede Shoes: A Rockabilly Special.” George and Carl are pictured here with #RingoStarr, #DaveEdmunds and #EricClapton. // “Carl is such a sweet fellow, he’s such a lovely man, and obviously he influenced me a great deal when I was young. I was so into his music - well, I still am. I just got all his old Sun Records originals on a CD now. [chuckles] And they still sound great.” - George Harrison, RTE, October 1987 //
“[George] told me, ‘If it hadn’t been for your Dad, I don’t know that I would have ever even picked up a guitar.’” - Stan Perkins, Carl’s son, Forbes, 31 May 2011 🎸 Photos: Terry O’Neill; unknown.
