Of the original members of the Beatles, only Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney still live. John Lennon was killed in 1980 while George Harrison died in 2001. Starr actually visited Harrison weeks before the latter\u2019s death, and so was privy to some of his last words on this earth. Tension between bandmates is not uncommon, and even morbidly expected. One only needs to look back at the tense revolving door that was the Temptations. So, it makes it all the more meaningful that Starr can look back at Harrison\u2019s final words to him and consider them \u201cincredible.\u201d Ringo Starr and George Harrison were not without tension George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon \/ Everett Collection It\u2019s also all the more remarkable considering the affair that threatened to drive a wedge between the bandmates - that is, a literal affair. In 1971, Star and Harrison attended a dinner along with their respective wives, Maureen and Pattie Boyd. There, Harrison announced to the table at large that he was in love with Starr\u2019s wife, revealing an affair neither went to great lengths to conceal.

Things went back to business as usual until time began playing its cruel tricks on their lives. Starr reveals Harrison\u2019s \u201cincredible\u201d final words weeks before his death Despite tension between them, the two bandmates reconciled and could bond one more time \/ Everett Collection \u201cThe last weeks of George\u2019s life he was in Switzerland, and I went to see him,\u201d Starr recalled. By that point, \u201cHe was very ill, and he could only lay down. I was going to Boston, \u2019cause my daughter had a brain tumor,\u201d Starr continued. \u201cAnd I said, \u2018Well, I gotta go to Boston.\u2019\u201d That\u2019s when Harrison interjected. \u201c goes \u2014 they\u2019re the last words I heard him say, actually \u2014 and he said, \u2018Do you want me to come with ya?\u2019 So that\u2019s the incredible side of George.\u201d For context, the last two years had been tumultuous for the lead guitarist. Back in 1999, he survived a home invasion in which the intruder punctured his lung with a knife; the incident left him bleeding from the mouth and weakened to near death. Though his family downplayed his injuries, it\u2019s believed that Harrison was forever changed by the trauma and that the stress helped his cancer return - cancer that ended up manifesting in the lungs. Even after all that, Harrison had asked Starr if he wanted company while seeing his daughter during Starr\u2019s familial woes. That does indeed say a lot about his character.
