Who was George Harrison? George Harrison, also known as the quiet Beatle as well as the youngest of the Fab Four was born on February 25, 1943 in Liverpool, England. Sadly, George passed away from lung cancer on November 29, 2001 in Los Angeles, California. He is survived by his wife, Olivia, and son, Dhani, who now has a budding career in music.
George was asked to join the Beatles, or rather the Quarrymen, in March of 1958. The Quarrymen were the precursor to the Beatles and at that time consisted of band leader John Lennon and Paul McCartney – a school mate of George’s. Although George wrote numerous songs during his time with the Beatles, his share of any given record was usually not more than two songs.
After the official split up of the Beatles in 1970, George embarked on a successful solo career. For his first album, “All Things Must Pass,” George included many of the songs that he had written as a Beatle.
However, it was not George’s first attempt at releasing a solo album; he had released two albums,
Electronic Sound, both of which comprised of mainly instrumental compositions.
Throughout his life, George recorded numerous solo albums, which include:
- Wonderwall Music
