George Harrison in 1964 (John Hoppy Hopkins/Redferns)A blue plaque honoring the late George Harrison was unveiled on Tuesday on the site of a home in the London suburb of Esher, where the former Beatles guitarist resided from 1964 to 1970.

Get Surrey reports that Harrison’s first wife, Pattie Boyd, who lived with George at the bungalow for most of those years, took part in the dedication ceremony.

Boyd moved into the residence, which was known as Kinfauns, in 1965, and she and Harrison hosted their wedding reception there in January 1966. While living at the home, George and Pattie painted psychedelic designs on the outside walls, while some of their famous friends, including Mick Jagger and his former girlfriend Marianne Faithfull, also painted parts of house.

Boyd told Get Surrey that when she returned to the house for the plaque unveiling, she was saddened to discover that “all the beautiful paintings that were done by people like Mick and Marianne, and George and myself, and a lot of our friends have been washed over and demolished.”

Most of the home was demolished in 2003 and was replaced by a two-story house.

“As I was driving to come here, suddenly I was overcome with amazing memories of such a happy time,” Pattie noted. “I came into the drive and was totally blown away because it’s not like the house I remember at all.”

After Pattie and George split, she married his best friend Eric Clapton, who’d written “Layla” about her.

In 1968, The Beatles recorded a series of demos at Kinfauns for songs that later appeared on the band’s “White Album.”

Harrison’s plaque, which was organized by the Esher Residents Association, reads: “George Harrison MBE, 1943-2001, Musician, Lead Guitarist, Songwriter and Singer with The Beatles, Lived at Kinfauns on this Site 1964-1970.”
