A compelling account of the man whose smooth, elegant guitar technique became the centrepiece of classic Beatles' albums and whose compositions, whether for the group like 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', 'Something' and 'Here Comes The Sun' or as part of his own successful solo career like 'My Sweet Lord' or 'Got My Mind Set On You' became classics in their own right. Moreover All Things Must Pass goes behind the music and tries to understand the quiet and gentle, almost mystical man at its heart. Sympathetically capturing George's courage in the face of the savage cancers of his last year as well as his calmness in the face of death, Shapiro portrays a life and career which will amaze and excite all rock fans as well as the millions of Beatle devotees. A fitting tribute to a great artist and a generous human being.
