Sir George Harrison è stato un cantautore, polistrumentista, compositore, attore, produttore cinematografico e discografico britannico.

Dal 1960 al 1970 è stato il chitarrista solista e cantante del complesso musicale dei Beatles; dopo lo scioglimento del gruppo ha intrapreso la carriera individuale, sia come musicista che come produttore musicale e cinematografico. Fu anche un fondatore e membro del gruppo dei Traveling Wilburys.

Durante gli anni trascorsi con i Beatles realizzò venticinque canzoni. Tutti gli album del gruppo da With the Beatles contenevano generalmente due o più brani di sua composizione; molto celebri sono i suoi brani composti negli ultimi anni del gruppo; While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something e Here Comes the Sun. Dopo lo scioglimento del gruppo realizzò il suo primo album solista, contenente molti brani che non erano stati pubblicati negli ultimi album dei Beatles, All Things Must Pass; in aggiunta al lavoro solista collaborò anche con Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Jeff Lynne e Tom Petty.

Harrison conobbe la cultura e la musica indiana nella seconda metà degli anni sessanta e ne divenne profondo estimatore; introdusse notevoli sonorità di origine indiana sia nei Beatles, sia nel lavoro solista. Assieme al musicista indiano Ravi Shankar organizzò, nell'agosto 1971, il celebre The Concert for Bangladesh, primo concerto benefico nella storia della musica, in cui parteciparono anche Starr, Clapton, Shankar e Bob Dylan; in tale occasione si stava per realizzare una reunion dei Fab Four, ma John Lennon declinò l'invito poiché non si voleva la partecipazione della moglie Yoko Ono e Paul McCartney a causa della presenza di Allen Klein fra gli organizzatori.

Dal 15 marzo 2004 il suo nome figura nella Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame.

Frasi George Harrison

„If there's a God, I want to see Him.“

— George Harrison
Context: If there's a God, I want to see Him. It's pointless to believe in something without proof, and Krishna consciousness and meditation are methods where you can actually obtain God perception. In that way you can see, hear and play with God. Perhaps this may sound weird, but God is really there next to you. Introduction to Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead (1970) by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

„All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call.“

— George Harrison
Context: From the Hindu perspective, each soul is divine. All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call. Just as cinematic images appear to be real but are only combinations of light and shade, so is the universal variety a delusion. The planetary spheres, with their countless forms of life, are naught but figures in a cosmic motion picture. One's values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture and that not in, but beyond, lies his own ultimate reality. Introduction to Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead (1970) by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada; this paraphrases some statements from An Autobiography of a Yogi (1948) by Paramahansa Yogananda

„Little darling,
It's been a long cold lonely winter.“

— George Harrison
Context: Little darling, It's been a long cold lonely winter. Little darling, It feels like years since it's been here. Here comes the sun... Here Comes the Sun (1969)

„I wasn't getting into any of that.“

— George Harrison
Context: He was annoyed 'cause I didn't say that he'd written one line of this song "Taxman." But I also didn't say how I wrote two lines of "Come Together" or three lines of "Eleanor Rigby," you know? I wasn't getting into any of that. I think, in the balance, I would have had more things to be niggled with him about than he would have had with me! When asked about John Lennon's feelings towards his autobiography, interview with Selina Scott on West 57th Street, aired 12 December 1987
