George and I had an understanding as people and an understanding as musicians. We became friends because we found it easy to be friends.
During the time I visited George in hospital we would sit chatting about this and that. The conversation was always gentle and easy - we didn't try to put the world to rights!
I wrote a piece of music which seemed to describe in musical terms the communication between us. After I recorded the piece I gave it to George on a CD. He listened very intently and said: "Yeah man, that's how it is"
