In Tribute: George Harrison

Posted in music by adeli on February 25, 2009

Today, Feb. 25, 2009, would’ve been George Harrison’s 66th birthday. He was the lead guitarist of The Beatles and crafted some of the group’s songs, including While My Guitar Gently Weeps, the love song Something, the psychedelic Blue Jay Way, Within You Without You (no other Beatle performs on this song; George plays the sitar), and the gem Here’s Comes The Sun.

His solo work showed off his song writing skills and his stellar guitar talent. His triple album masterpiece All Things Must Pass includes such hits as My Sweet Lord, If Not For You, What Is Life, Isn’t It A Pity, and the title track.

Other notable songs from his solo catalog include All Those Years Ago (dedicated to Lennon after his murder), Give Me Love, When We Was Fab, I Got My Mind Set On You.

His posthumously-released album Brainwashed and his work as part of the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys are highly recommended as well.
