Description
Far from being 'the quiet one,' George Harrison was a writer and arranger of terrific power and beauty, and his guitar playing was fundamental to the sound and success of The Beatles. Simon Leng presents the most comprehensive evaluation of the art and music of George Harrison ever published, from the star's initial early influences right up to his final collection of songs, Brainwashed . Treating each song with unprecedented analysis, Leng reveals Harrison's eclectic approach - from teenage Nashville twang through Indian raga, psychedelia, gospel, soul and pure pop - thoroughly defining Harrison's role in The Beatles. First hand accounts of the Concert For Bangla Desh and the making of All Things Must Pass take the reader deep into the most fertile and controversial periods of Harrison's long solo career. Enhanced with insights from key figures who worked closely with Harrison throughout his extraordinary career, this biography is a remarkably stirring study and portrait of a great artist whose musical and spiritual quest changed the lives of millions of people around the world while redefining popular music and rock'n'roll.
