George Harrison was born in February 1943 in Liverpool. He was the youngest member of the Beatles and therefore decided that his place in the band is rather in the background. In many ways, this role suited his personality. The opinion of “silent Beatles” clung to him. Undoubtedly, of all the band members, he least sought publicity.
Although Harrison rather tried to remain in the shadow of the Beatles’ fame, his extraordinary talent was evident at first glance. As a guitarist, he played with excellent sensitivity and subtlety. He believed that his task was to completely devote himself to the song. Among the guitar celebrities of the 1960s, George Harrison was one of the most creative and original musicians.
The idea of introducing sitar in “Norwegian Wood”, “Love You To” and “Within You, Without You”, as well as Harrison’s creative friendship with the virtuoso of this instrument, Ravi Shankar, helped revolutionize the pop music of the 1960s. What’s more, his fascination with Eastern spirituality has brought remarkable effects, and its influence is still felt in the West today.
One of the best post Beatles songs ever.
