Description
Even if you already have your favorite Beatle, this beautifully produced book—a companion to the documentary Martin Scorsese directed for HBO—might change your mind about George, the "quiet" one, who pursued a more spiritual life in the wake of his sudden, overwhelming material success as one of the Fab Four. With photos, letters, diaries, and memorabilia from George Harrison's personal archive, his widow Olivia reveals the arc of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool through the astonishment of the Beatles years to his days as an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison's abiding love of Indian music and his adventures as a movie producer, a member of the Traveling Wilburys, and a Formula One racing fan. The heavily illustrated book is filled with stories and reminiscences from many of Harrison's friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr, and features photographs that Harrison himself took beginning in the mid-1960s.

"The four-hundred-page book is filled with reproductions of notes, letters, scribbled lyrics, and some never-before-seen photographs. How many Beatles fans are out there? And how many 'liked George'? Quite a few, it may turn out."—Publishers Weekly
