Happy birthday George Harrison

When I first got into The Beatles as a kid with my friends, we all pretended to be one of the members. I chose George Harrison because he was the teallest (like I was at the time) and he was the quietest (not so much like me). But what I liked about him was that he wasn’t super popular like John or Paul but he was there making great music.

“I wanted to be successful, not famous.” — George Harrison

George to me was not a guy that wanted to be out there and make big waves. He just wanted to enjoy things. After his work with The Beatles, he put together a magical album called “All Things Must Pass” and to me it is one of th best albums I own.

It’s kinda sad that half of The Beatles is no longer with us. But it’s still great to think about how pretty cool and awesome George meant to me in my discovery of music.

For today only, you can watch the “Concert for George” on live stream for free. Check it out.
