Today on the Fab Four at Four, I'm focusing on George Harrison.
The youngest of The Beatles, George joined early Beatle predecessor band The Quarrymen when we was just 15, have been denied membership at 14. As a Beatle, Harrison wrote "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun".
After The Beatles, he enjoyed a successful solo career, and in 1988 co-founded the supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, with Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Harrison number 11 in their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". He was a close friend of Eric Clapton, and is the only Beatle to have published an autobiography — I, Me, Mine (1980). Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001.
