George Harrison said he and Eric Clapton ‘preserved and protected’ their friendship

Clapton was with The Yardbirds and George with The Beatles when they first met in the early 1960s. However, George told Mitchell Glazer (per George Harrison on George Harrison: Interviews and Encounters) that he didn’t officially get to know Clapton until they bumped into one another at a Lovin’ Spoonful concert. George thought the guitarist looked lonely.
