Description

A comprehensive voyage through the life, loves, career, songs, records, concerts and achievements of the late George Harrison. From his working-class upbringing in Liverpool to his emergence as the 'quiet Beatle' and his development as a student of Indian music and philosophy, this encylopedia follows his inspiring life: the legendary, groundbreaking 'Concert For Bangla Desh', the composition of classic songs such as 'Something' and 'My Sweet Lord' ; becoming the first ex-Beatle to top both the album and singles charts; his role as a champion of the British film industry with his unique HandMade films; the creation of the supergroup the Travelling Wilbury's and his years as a simple gardener on his beautiful Henley estate, Friar Park. Harrison's life was not without drama, and his efforts to establish himself as a songwriter against the powerful duo of Lennon & McCartney, the loss of his first wife, Patti to his best friend , Eric Clapton, his flirtation with drugs, his struggle against a knife-wielding intruder and his courageous battle against cancer are also detailed.show more
