George Harrison Inducted Into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame

Friday, September 06, 2013

With nearly 56 percent of the vote, George Harrison becomes the first double inductee into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame. Harrison was inducted earlier this year as a member of the Beatles, and here his solo career beat out Bob Seger in the final round. He also triumphed over Genesis and Grand Funk Railroad in the previous rounds.

Harrison began his work as a solo artist while the Beatles were still together. He released the soundtrack to the movie ‘Wonderwall’ in 1968 and the avant-garde ‘Electronic Sound’ a year later. Harrison was usually only given two or three songs per Beatles album, so when they broke up, he had a huge backlog of material already waiting. The result was 1970′s triple album ‘All Things Must Pass,’ which contained the hit singles ‘My Sweet Lord‘ and ‘What is Life.’
