|Something in the way he lived|

A Hofstra University professor who studied yoga with George Harrison will lead a tribute concert to the late Beatles guitarist on Friday on the school's Hempstead, NY campus. Joshua M. Greene, a Hinduism instructor, is author of the Harrison biography "Here Comes the Sun," which lends its name to the live event.
"Here Comes the Sun" is timed to the seventh anniversary of Harrison's death and focuses on his spiritual interests. It is part PowerPoint presentation, part live concert, with photo and video clips of the guitarist punctuated by performances of his best-known work, played by members of the Alan Parsons Project band, among them classic rock mainstay Godfrey Townsend and three Long Island musicians, Tommy Williams, John Montagna and Mike Bellusci.
The presentation takes place on Friday, November 21, at 8 p.m., at the Monroe Lecture Center Theater at Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Sign up at Hofstra's website. For information about this event, call 516-463-5840.
