Subscribe to Grammy Awards alerts

Late BEATLE GEORGE HARRISON's wife Olivia paid an emotional tribute to her late husband at last night's (8FEB04) Grammy Awards.

Brave Olivia took the stage alongside George's former bandmate JOHN Lennon's widow Yoko Ono to receive a special Grammy award to mark the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America.

And Olivia - who lost her husband in November 2001 to cancer - told the audience, "It's an honour to be here for George.

"Forty-one years ago George made a solo trip to the United States. On his return to England, he said, 'They have everything over there. Why do they need us?'"

"But as it turned out, America did need the Beatles. They were mystical messengers of peace, love and higher consciousness.

"The love you take is equal to the love you make. I love you, George."
