George Harrison, prominent member and lead guitarist of the legendary band ‘The Beatles’, died on the 29th November 2001, and his death anniversary has been remembered this month. Harrison died because of cancer, as he had been suffering with it and in addition to it his age also contributed to make his health worse and he could not recover in a proper way.
He was not only a simple guitarist with ‘The Beatles’, but rather he was a singer and composer too. His life was much bigger than the 12 years which he spent with the band, as after the band broke up in the 70’s he still wrote and composed songs along with his friend Eric Clapton.
In his later years, specially during the period when he was out of the band, he still had strong success from his personal compilations, and this is why he still had an identity outside the band ‘the Beatles’. In addition to rock and western music he had a strong liking for Indian music as result he had also visited India frequently and met India sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar.
He was quite inspired by him and thus he even gave is son and India name ‘Dhani Harrison’. One can conclude here that George was the bloodline of ‘The Beatles’ and it was after he left the band the whole group was just swaying out of order. We will be remembering him forever.
