George Harrison: A Tribute | [Geoffrey Giuliano]

George Harrison: A Tribute

The silence is deafening with the loss of George Harrison, the "Quiet Beatle," who lost his long bout with cancer last week at the age of 58. George Harrison: A Tribute celebrates the journey of the musician and the man - a journey which, like the traveler himself, is an extraordinary mix of the spiritual and the down-to-earth. It is a gripping, inspiring, and at times amusing portrait of one of popular music's highest-soaring talents - who will be sorely missed.

Publisher's Summary

"The Beatles exist apart from myself. I am not really Beatle George. Beatle George is like a suit or shirt that I once wore on occasion, and until the end of my life, people may see that shirt and mistake it for me." - George Harrison (Newsweek, 1995)

Of the four legendary Beatles, he is often referred to as "the Quiet One," but behind this innocent-sounding moniker stands one of the towering giants of rock and roll. From the guitarist's early days in working-class Liverpool, through years of super-stardom with the Fab Four, and onward into a life of spiritual devotion and bold musical invention, George Harrison: A Tribute takes you through nearly four decades of rock history in the Quiet Beatle's own aptly chosen words. Joining him in these rare audio clips are fellow Beatles Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and Ringo Starr, longtime associate Alistair Taylor, and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the venerable spiritual leader of the Transcendental Meditation movement that so passionately captivated Harrison for most of his adult life.

"It doesn't matter if you're the greatest guitar player in the world. If you're not enlightened, forget it." - George Harrison (Zen Guitar)

This remarkable tribute gives listeners a rare glimpse of George Harrison's transformation from lovable pop star to seasoned solo musician, and illustrates how his rich spirituality propelled the artist to champion humanitarian causes and gave him the strength to face a bitter divorce, ill health, and a vicious assault. George Harrison: A Tribute celebrates the journey of the musician, film producer, activist, and survivor - a journey which, like the traveler himself, is an extraordinary mix of the spiritual and the down-to-earth. It is a gripping, inspiring, and at times amusing portrait of one of popular music's highest-soaring talents.

    "Sloppy and lazy research"

    As a long time Beatles fan, I looked forward to a work that would shed light on George's career, influences and inspirations. After all, George was an incredible complex and true artist, pulled through life by his talent and love of art and the fringe. This audio book only accidentally provides glimpses of Harrison through his own words, while frequently misconstruing facts and events much better described in other works. This book is little more than a sloppy tease that tells us there is a rich an interesting story completely missed by this lazy author.
