George explained how Dhani came across the Beatles song “Hey Bulldog”, which appears in some cuts of Yellow submarine. “He became aware over the last few years…. And I didn’t really tell him anything about The Beatles because it was so long ago anyway, ”he said. “I didn’t want to overwhelm him with all of this.

“But nonetheless, I think most children when they get to about four or five years old, they see Yellow Submarine, and then he sort of picked up, then he came over to me one day and said, “Hey daddy, how do you play the piano from ‘Hey Bulldog?’ George added. “I thought to myself, it’s strange, how does he know a song like that?” »But it is in Yellow Submarine. George added that his son was not impressed with ‘Hey Bulldog’.
