George Harrison's extraordinary musical career will be feted this coming Saturday at New York City's Beacon Theatre by the Fab Faux, dubbed "the greatest Beatles cover band" by Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke. Legendary rock critic and Sirius XM radio host Dave Marsh enthused, "Amazingly, they're so good at it you learn new things about the originals."
The band, a labor of love born in 1998 when neighbors Jimmy Vivino (bandleader/guitarist for Conan O'Brien) and Will Lee (bassist for Paul Shaffer's CBS Orchestra on the Late Show with David Letterman) came up with the idea during a communal elevator ride in their apartment building. Jimmy and Will are joined by lead-singing drummer/producer Rich Pagano (Rosanne Cash, Patti Smith, sugarCane cups), guitarist Frank Agnello (Marshall Crenshaw, Phoebe Snow), and keyboardist/guitarist Jack Petruzzelli (Joan Osborne Band, Rufus Wainwright). Harrison would have been 70 years old this past February.
