Remembering George Harrison on his 75th birthday

Sunday, February 25, 2018

The "quiet Beatle" George Harrison would have turned 75 on February 25. A look back at the life of the boy from Liverpool who became the Fab Four's lead guitarist.

A brooder and introvert, George Harrison always seemed to be in the shadows of the alpha males John Lennon and Paul McCartney during his time with The Beatles. Yet he made it onto the Rolling Stone list of the 100 best guitarists of all time with his very special slide guitar technique at number 11.

The musical pioneer's legacy is "the combination of ritual Indian music with secular western pop music in the sense of a global music without ethnic or religious boundaries," said the curator of the rock'n'popmuseum in Gronau, Germany, Thomas Mania.
