George Harrison | [Alan Clayson]

George Harrison

Often overlooked as a songwriter, despite penning The Beatles' standards "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun", and being the first of the four to release solo material, George Harrison embraced fame reluctantly, retiring from public life after the assassination of John Lennon, but launched a spectacular late 1980s comeback.

Publisher's Summary

Often overlooked as a songwriter, despite penning The Beatles' standards "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun", and being the first of the four to release solo material, George Harrison embraced fame reluctantly, retiring from public life after the assassination of John Lennon. Launching a spectacular late-1980s comeback with The Traveling Wilburys, he returned as a household name for a new generation with the Anthology projects and 2000's best-selling 1 album.

This abridged version of George Harrison chronicles the life of "the quiet one" right up to his recent unsuccessful battle with cancer.

    READING BUY SOMEONE WITH SUCH A THICK BRITISH ACCENT ADDED AN AIR OF AUTHENTICITY BUT MADE IT SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT TO UNDER STAND AT TIMES.

    "This was a waste of time"
    Any additional comments?

    Clayson seems to understand nothing about Harrison's unique musicality and approach to songwriting. He also doesn't seem to appreciate Harrison's role in the Beatles. If Clayson dislikes Harrison so much, why write a book about him? Money, perhaps? I learned nothing new about George Harrison, and feel ripped off.
