BEATLE GEORGE CLOSE TO DEATH?

The Fab Four's producer Sir George Martin says the star may have as little as a few days to live...

GEORGE HARRISON is reported to be expecting to die soon.

The ex-Beatle‘s former producer and friend George Martin said yesterday (July 22) that he may have as little as a few days left to live.

This morning’s Sun newspaper quotes Martin as saying: “George has an indomitable spirit, but he knows he is going to die soon and he is accepting that. He is very philosophical. He has been near death many times and he’s been rescued many times as well.”

The 58-year-old star has undergone treatment for lung cancer and a brain tumour this year. In 1998 he overcame cancer of the throat, and one year later was injured when a man broke into his home and attacked him with a knife.
