in my life, so we got along very, very well and a cou­ple of years later we got talk­ing and we de­cided ‘Let’s form our own band,’” she re­called.

In or­der to do that, Har­ri­son said she had to find mu­si­cians that would do jus­tice to the Bea­tles mu­sic and to the Bea­tles — Har­ri­son, John Len­non, Paul McCart­ney, Ge­orge and Ringo Starr.

“To me it was im­por­tant to find the kind of guys that looked some­what like The Bea­tles and that were re­ally, re­ally good mu­si­cians be­cause Bea­tles mu­sic is not easy to play,” she said. “And then for me the most im­por­tant thing was to try to find the kind of guys that if Ge­orge was still here, they’d be the kind of guys that would be his bud­dies and I think we’ve suc­ceeded. They’re re­ally a great, great group of guys.”

Har­ri­son said the Liver­pool Leg­ends — who head­line their own pro­duc­tion in Bran­son, Mis­souri, and have toured the world — try to cover as much of the Bea­tles ca­reer as they can in their per­for­mances.

“We do it with love and re­spect and fun and we want to make sure our audiences have a re­ally good time. We en­cour­age peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate, get up and dance and just have fun,” she said.

Har­ri­son said tour­ing with the Liver­pool Leg­ends al­lows her to share a bit of her brother’s spirit with oth­ers.

“One of the last times that I saw him he gave me a big ol’ hug and he said ‘Pass it on,’ and that’s what I’ve been do­ing, I’ve been try­ing to pass on the Har­ri­son hug,” she said, not­ing she en­cour­ages peo­ple to pass it along as well. “I tell peo­ple to not only ac­cept the hug but to give it on and to tell peo­ple where it came from and to ask them to give it on be­cause that’s my way of help­ing to keep my brother’s love flow­ing all across the planet.”
