|George Harrison remembered in online interviews|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Saturday, 11/28/15 10:05 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Fourteen years ago this week the world lost George Harrison. Countless rock writers have tried to define the late George Harrison for a long time now as the 19 year old guitarist from Liverpool in an exciting new band in 1963; the Beatle who persuaded the other band members to visit India and study meditation and religion; the first Beatle to release a solo album and the first to have it top the charts.
George Harrison the Humanitarian as the architect of the Concert for Bangladesh; George the indie film producer; Harrison the comeback kid with his 1987 smash solo album Cloud Nine; as Nelson Wilbury and his superstar band of five rhythm guitar players; Harrison the devoted husband and a father. George was all these things and so much more.
InTheStudio.NET, the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands, has consolidated several interviews with George Harrison in a special two-part "Best of" program. Speaking to InTheStudio host Redbeard, Harrison relates his own struggles for relevancy to others trying to live normal lives.
In those interviews, now streaming on the internet, Geoerge said, "People tend to write you off, it's a bit silly because after all the time we've been around, you'd think I must know something by now. So I always felt confident that if I wanted to do something and do it right, I could eventually. I like to put some words in songs that if anyone is out there listening, that it can give them a bit hope to. You know, it's like also saying 'don't worry its only a bit of time and if you keep on truckin' we'll be ok.'"
