Remembering George Harrison
Today marks the anniversary of the day the world lost George Harrison.
He died of lung cancer on November 29, 2001 in Los Angeles.
I have to borrow the words of my facebook friend, Dale Pantz (a musician in his own right).
When I saw his post today, I knew he’d absolutely spoken truth.
“Remembering the late great, music icon, humorist, and philosopher, George Harrison on the anniversary of his death.
George may have been famous, but he was probably one of the humblest, most spiritual, down to earth people ever to become famous.
I don’t believe he ever lived in the shadow of Lennon and McCartney as a songwriter…his songs were some of my favorite Beatle tunes, and some of the greatest rock songs ever written. His songs were full of hope and optimism for our world
It seems Harrison really didn’t care much for success, he just wanted to play guitar, and when he did, he made it weep.
Today I am listening to the brilliant album “All Things Must Pass”, in his honor. Still tremendously missed by his fans and anyone who loves great guitar playing.”
Yeah, what Dale said.
