"Dad loved the ukulele… he used to have two ukes in his hand baggage just in case anyone else needed one." - Dhani Harrison, Concert for George microsite
"During this [George Formby] stage everyone had to learn to play the uke, even Liv he taught to strum away." - Eric Idle, The Greedy Bastard Diary
"See, George really treasured his friends. Mike Campbell was saying, ‘George was the only kind of friend I knew who would bring you a gift every time he saw you.’ He once brought me four ukuleles in a week. […] I said, ‘George, I don’t think I need four ukuleles.’ He said, ‘Well, this one is better than the other ones. And it’s just good to have them here - you never know when we’re going to all be over and need them.’ […]
He really got into the ukulele. It sounds kind of corny, but it gave him so much joy, you know. I was there when he first discovered it. The rest of his life was ukulele. He played the hell out of the thing. When my kids were little, we could clear rooms with those things, because they knew George was going to carry on till daylight with the ukulele.” - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 17 January 2002
"He came in with two ukuleles and gave me one. ‘You gotta play this thing, it’s great! Let’s jam.’ I have no idea how to play a ukulele. ‘Oh, it’s no problem, I’ll show you.’ So we spent the rest of the day playing ukuleles, strolling around the yard. My wrist hurt the next day. But he taught me how to play it, and a lot of the chord formations. When he was going I walked out to the car and he said, ‘Well, wait… I want to leave some ukuleles here.’ He’d already given me one, so I said, ‘Well, I’ve got this.’ ‘No, we may need more!’ He opened his trunk and he had a lot of ukuleles in there, and I think he left four at my house. He said, ‘Well, you never know when we might need them, because not everybody carries them around.’" - Tom Petty, Living in the Material World
"Sometimes if you’d go around to George’s house after you’d have dinner, the ukuleles would come out." - Paul McCartney, Concert for George, 29 November 2002
"[N]ear the very end, as he was slipping away, I’d sit beside him and play some ukulele very quietly. He’d wake and smile… I half expected him to tell me I was doing it wrong. George was passionate about the ukulele. He played it brilliantly, studied it and collected hundreds of vintage instruments. There’s not much you can do with a ukulele that doesn’t sound happy. I think that’s why he liked it." - Jeff Lynne, EZFolk, 9 November 2002
