Today would have marked George Harrison’s 66th birthday. Sadly, he passed away at the young age of 58 back in Nov. 2001. It’s hard to believe that it has been a little more than 7 years already.
George has always been and will always remain my favorite Beatle. For some reason his music resonates with me more so than John, Paul or Ringo. Think about his career? He was part of the most popular band ever in the history of music, his often “under-valued” solo career and his stint with The Traveling Wilbury’s, really is inspiring. In my opinion, he wrote one of the best, if not the best, song that the Beatles ever recorded- “Something.” Every time I hear it, I just stop whatever I am doing and focus on the work of art.
One of my other personal favorites is “I’d Have You Anytime” from his masterpiece- “All Things Must Pass.”

I could go on and on about the man and his accomplishments but what I really wanted to do was draw your attention to him today. Happy Birthday George and rest in peace.
