George was an original viral video star years before there was a Youtube. And
yes, she practiced social networking way before Zuckerberg was just a gleam in
his Daddy's eyes. She's a one-woman promotion MACHINE who plays the crowd
like a fiddle - even still. Long Live George - The Ringmaster of the circus!....

"Girl George & the Arizona Star" (Story of)

When we 1st met in 1970 S.F.in a play"The Potboilers" in which we were All CATS.. (This was
Long before the Famous Play "CATS).. produced &written by Monty Pike...I had Been in the
Play a few yrs Before.. When he started doing it again He wanted me back in it..
I said if My Band "Summer Rain" Could play on the intermission.
.I'd do it.. Well this time.a 20 yr old Christina Yakobian.. was in the play.. When my band
played & I drug everyone up on stage to sing back up..(as I always do) Chris came up
& stayed with my band for 3 yrs.. at Enricos one nite we were in the bathroom..
Chris said "I need a new Name" everyone is named Chris..
I Looked up at the wallpaper.. It Said "Superstar" all over it..
I said "How about *STAR" that became her name.
Then when we went to Nashville the next yr.1971..
She added Arizona..where she was from..
(Though she was Born in OHIO.)..
Arizona Star was a Double Gemini..with at least four different Personalities,that she
would float seamlessly from one to the other..There was Of course Marilyn Monroe..
Shirley Temple (at age 5)..Mae West..Betty Davis..
She was always Very Light & Amusing.
.She Made me Laugh..She'd tell me
"Why tell the Truth..When a Lie Makes a Better Story"..
She was always Telling Elaborate Colorful Story's..
She was at Her best at the Pancake Man..after Hours..
Nashville.. All the Session Musicians..were there to eat.. Everyone would Gather
around our Table as Star would put on Make up
on top of Make up ( Lips Stick..Powder) & Talk & Spin these
Fantastic Stories.~Tales of things that had happen when I was There with her....
But I could Hardly Recognize..through Her Retelling..
We were Ying & Yang~Different as Nite & Day.
.I am a Scorpio & I wore a 3ft. Sword on my hip..
Velvet & Knee Hi Black Pirate Boots (I never wore Make up).
.Girlgeo played Guitar Sang lead..,Wrote songs..was Leader of the Band.
Arizon Star . Played Tambourine Kazoo ~,Maracas..& sang Harmony back up ~ Danced around~
wrote songs..Arizona star Was Always Half Naked..Bangles & Beads.Up & down her Arms & on
her Neck..Tons of Make Up..(she wanted to Be a moviestar ala Marilyn Monroe Not a Rockstar
That Was My Thing) But she went along for the Ride..And what a Long Amazing Ride it Was...
