It appears the legend of the Beatles will never fade or die. ‘George you’re alive’ posted a fan after Beatles George Harrison posted something on John Lennon on Friday. Formed in 1960 in Liverpool, the English Rock band Beatles is one of the most popular bands of all time. The band comprised John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.

Among them, Lennon was shot dead in 1980 and Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001. McCartney and Starr remain musically active. The Twitter handles of Lennon and Harrison are operated by their respective estates. It is usual for the celebrities’ Twitter handles to be maintained by their families and estates. And these handles mainly post promotional stuff of upcoming projects. But on Friday, the accounts of John Lennon and George Harrison deviated from this style.

“I like autobiographies, usually about famous people. It is the little decisions that are made, those sort of cosmic decisions, that changes the whole person’s direction, and who knows whether they make the decision or it’s made for them or what it was that just made that move,” Lennon handle tweeted.

Both the handles have been promoting their all-time best ‘Imagine’ lyric penned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The message of Lennon deviated from the usual style of tagging Imagine. Meanwhile, George Harrison’s handle turned more and more chatty.

“John didn’t even know that guitars should have 6 strings. He was playing banjo chords: big extended finger chords. I said, ‘What are you doing?’ He thought that that was how it should be. So we showed him some proper chords – E and A and all those,” Harrison tweeted with one of their old pictures.

“John would be a bit more outspoken than the others and at the same time I think that was important – that we had all these elements – John being a bit upmarket with the intellectuals, Paul being cute, Ringo being cuddly and I was the quiet one. So it all worked out,” another of Harrison’s tweets read. All these lines tweeted originated from their memoirs and Beatles Anthology book. But this chatter between Beatles stars took the fans so emotionally. “George, you are alive,” a fan tweeted. “George? Is it really you?” tweeted another fan. Another hilarious tweet by a fan read, “George you died 20 years ago, you don’t need to tweet. Be at peace.”
