Following continued meetings with banks, financial advisers and lawyers, George found time to escape to Eric Clapton’s home on a beautiful spring day. Sitting at the top of a hill, strumming acoustic guitars, Eric came up with “it’s been a long cold lonely winter” which inspired the construction of a riposte to Paul McCartney’s “You Never Give Me Your Money”.
