George Harrison’s Guitar a Part of the Crossroads Collection

Subscribe to 105.7 The Hawk on

George Harrison’s guitar, “Lucy”, which was given to him by Eric Clapton, will be a part of the Crossroads Collection to raise money for the Crossroads Centre (an addiction recovery center in Antigua founded by Clapton).

According to, the guitar can be heard on the White Album and Let It Be and was played by Clapton on “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

George also let Clapton play her in 1973 for Clapton’s Rainbow Concert (the show that was the touchstone event for Clapton’s emergence from years of struggling with a heroin addiction).

By the way, George would have turned 70 years old today

He’ll of course forever be remembered as the Quiet Beatle, but he still had a lot to say and expressed it with heart and soul.

He was born on February 25, 1943 in Liverpool, England.

He left the planet for a place much more suited to his sensitive and spiritual nature on November 29, 2001 when he was 58 years old.

So many of us miss him, his music and his presence on this earth, both of which brought light and joy to people all over the world.

In October 2011, a documentary titled George Harrison: Living in the Material World and directed by Martin Scorsese was released.

Rest in peace, George.
