"Concert for George" questions

I showed "Concert for George" to my girlfriend for the first time. While viewing it, it raised some questions from observations I made.

1. Was Patty Boyd at the show? She wasn't shown if she was. Was she invited to the concert?

2. The Rickenbacker 360/12 electric guitar they had on the right side of the stage in tribute to George, was that George's orginal Rickenbacker 360/12 electric guitarfrom 1964 with the Beatles?

3. Was that Klaus Voorman I saw in the background in the band playing bass?

i think klaus was, indeed the bass player.

no idea about patty boyd. don't know why she would have been invited.

and don't know about the guitar either.

but i'll give you this, if you watched this concert with your lady friend...and she is still with you...you have a keeper. congrats, kind sir.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.

no slam on the concert whatsoever. i happen to love it, but there are lots of different kinds of music out there. and if you are lucky enough to share the same taste in music...then...schwing.

The questions that "Concert For George" raised for me were:

Where was John Cleese?
The rest of (the surviving) Pythons were there, as well as Neil Innes.

Where was Bob Dylan?
The rest of (the surviving) Wilburys were there.
