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

„Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you.“

— George Harrison
Context: Do what you want to do, And go where you're going to. Think for yourself 'Cause I won't be there with you. Think for Yourself (1965)

„I expected them to all be nice and clean and friendly and happy … (on the contrary, I discovered them to be) hideous, spotty little teenagers.“

— George Harrison
Context: I'd thought it would be something like King's Road [London], only more. Somehow I expected them all to own their own little shops. I expected them to all be nice and clean and friendly and happy … (on the contrary, I discovered them to be) hideous, spotty little teenagers. Expressing disenchantment with the "Summer of Love" hippies of San Francisco's famous “hippie haven” i.e., the Haight-Ashbury district, which he visited on August 7, 1967. Quoted in Dark Horse: The Life and Art of George Harrison, Geoffrey Giuliano, Da Capo Press, , p. 80. http://books.google.com/books?id=0PLygywwfL8C&pg=PA80&dq=%22hideous,+spotty+little+teenagers%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=2Z6NT6-RM6Wr2AW8maGMDA&ved=0CDoQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%22hideous%2C%20spotty%20little%20teenagers%22&f=false

„I don't mind anybody dropping out of anything, but it's the imposition on somebody else I don't like.“

— George Harrison
Context: I don't mind anybody dropping out of anything, but it's the imposition on somebody else I don't like. The moment you start dropping out and then begging off somebody else to help you, then it's no good. It doesn't matter what you are as long as you work. It doesn't matter if you chop wood as long as you chop and keep chopping. Then you get what's coming to you. You don't have to drop out. In fact, if you drop out you put yourself further away from the goal of life than if you were to keep working. Quoted in Dark Horse: The Life and Art of George Harrison, Geoffrey Giuliano, Da Capo Press, , p. 80. http://books.google.com/books?id=0PLygywwfL8C&pg=PA80&dq=if+you+drop+out+you+put+yourself+further+away+from+the+goal+of+life+than+if+you+were+to+keep+working&hl=en&sa=X&ei=0a6NT_nKD6PC2QX434mQDA&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=if%20you%20drop%20out%20you%20put%20yourself%20further%20away%20from%20the%20goal%20of%20life%20than%20if%20you%20were%20to%20keep%20working&f=false

„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)

„My idea in "My Sweet Lord," because it sounded like a "pop song," was to sneak up on them a bit.“

— George Harrison
Context: My idea in "My Sweet Lord," because it sounded like a "pop song," was to sneak up on them a bit. The point was to have the people not offended by "Hallelujah," and by the time it gets to "Hare Krishna," they're already hooked, and their foot's tapping, and they're already singing along "Hallelujah," to kind of lull them into a sense of false security. And then suddenly it turns into "Hare Krishna," and they will all be singing that before they know what's happened, and they will think, "Hey, I thought I wasn't supposed to like Hare Krishna!" Interview with Mukunda Goswami (4 September 1982)

„I don't really like to be the guy in the white suit at the front.“

— George Harrison
Context: I had no ambition when I was a kid other than to play guitar and get in a rock 'n' roll band. I don't really like to be the guy in the white suit at the front. Like in the Beatles, I was the one who kept quiet at the back and let the other egos be at the front. Interview with Selina Scott on West 57th Street (aired 12 December 1987)

„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
