This story was in the August/Sept 1977 issue of "The Write Thing" fanzine and was written by Mitchell Borofsky of Brooklyn, NY.
I know that George was be in for Saturday Night Live, so I went down to NBC on Monday of that week. They told me something would be happening on Thursday. I went down Thursday and waited until 4 in the afternoon, when he showed up. Now, I had never seen George on the street before so I didn't know what to expect. I heard from some people that he had been a bitch in previous years. A photographer told me to go outside and see if a limo had pulled up. Right outside the building was a limo. I heard somebody in it say George, but I took no notice of it. Then a guy standing there with long hair turned around and it was him. I asked him if that was him singing on "I must be in love" by the Rutles, but he said no. I then asked him if he was appearing at some benefit for United Farm Workers, to which he replied, "no but you should go anyway."
I came back at night and was able to get into the studio with my friend Mitchell and club member, Larry Tepper. In the studio George was great. He was kidding around, singing, etc. A sample of his bumour: "Instead of the cameras moving into us why dont' we move into you," or when they were doing "Here comes the sun" for the 10th time he said, "if we do this one more time, it really will come up." Larry asked him to sing "Dark Horse" and he did the complete song for us. Other songs he did that were not shown on TV were "Rock Island Line," bits of "Yesterday", "She said, she said" and "Don't let me wait too long" I saw him downstairs and gave him a Dark Horse t-shirt that my friend Mitch and I made up. He said, "thank you, thank you."
