George Harrison (1943-2001)

George Harrison was an English rock musician, singer-songwriter, and lead guitarist of The Beatles.  He is often referred to as “the quiet Beatle” and credited with helping revolutionize rock music.  George Harrison also embraced Indian culture and Hinduism in the mid 1960s and helped expand Western awareness of sitar music.  He wrote many Beatles hits, including “Here Comes the Sun,” “Something,” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”  In the late 1990s Harrison developed throat cancer and had an operation at the Mayo Clinic to remove a cancerous growth from one of his lungs.  In July of 2001 he underwent radiotherapy for a brain tumor at a clinic in Switzerland.  George Harrison passed away on November 29, 2001.  His final words were recorded by his wife, simply “love one another.”
