George Harrison, lead guitarist for the band that changed the face of rock forever, lost his battle with cancer Thursday in Los Angeles. He was 58. The Associated Press reports that Harrison passed away at 4:30 p.m. ET at a friend’s home. His wife, Olivia Harrison, and 23-year-old son Dhani were with him.

The Beatles, unlike most bands of the early ’60s, both wrote and performed their songs, and led the way for generations of bands and singer/songwriters to come in this regard. Even today, few superstar acts can take credit for penning all their hits, but from writing the lyrics and music to recording in three-part harmony, the Beatles did it all.

As the lead guitarist in a group for which the guitar solos weren’t the most striking aspect, it’s no wonder Harrison was known as “the quiet Beatle.” But along with well-constructed, rockabilly-rooted solos, he also contributed the occasional lead vocal on early Beatles recordings such as “Roll Over Beethoven” and “I’m Happy Just to Dance With You.” And while not as prolific as the legendary songwriting team of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Harrison wrote, and sang, such Beatles classics as “Taxman,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Here Comes the Sun” and “Something.”

My favourite George Harrison Track –

Whilst search for the music above I found this performance by his grown up son Dhani (well a short extract then the great man George.  Dhani has some resemblance to Dad!

That’s all for now, thanks for visiting this post!
