The George Harrison Encyclopedia by Bill Harry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is 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 encyclopedia follows his inspiring life: the legendary, groundbreaking "Concert for Bangladesh"; the composition of the 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 Traveling 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 and 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.
