Footnotes

  • The Concert for Bangla Desh was the first event of its type to raise money and awareness for a charitable cause. Moved by the plight of the Bangladeshi people, George organised the occasion which was held at the Madison Square Garden, 1st August 1971. An impressive line-up of musicians appeared, including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr and Ravi Shankar.

    The horn/arm section of this award was donated, in the 1970s, to the then-landlord of the Row Barge pub, Henley-on-Thames, and used for some years as a bar decoration. It was subsequently re-attached to its base.
