Harrison was born and raised in Liverpool; he had a sister, Louise and two brothers, Harry and Peter. He enrolled at Dovedale Primary School when he was five years old, and from 1954 to 1959 Harrison attended famous Liverpool Institute. His love for guitars started in 1956 when he heard the song, “Heartbreak Hotel“ by Elvis Presley. Soon his father bought him a Dutch Egmond flat top acoustic guitar. Later on, Harrison formed a group, Rebels, with his brother Peter and Arthur Kelly, which played skiffle music. His career with The Beatles started as early as March 1958, the only difference was in the name of the band, as they were initially called The Quarryman. Harrison auditioned for the band twice, thanks to Paul McCartney, as the two met on a bus to school and become friends, because of the mutual taste in music. McCartney become a member of Lennon`s band, The Quarryman, and suggested Harrison for a guitar player. Lennon was firstly against it, because Harrison was only 15 years old, but because of his stubbornness and talent, Harrison earned a spot with the band playing as a part-time member, but became a full member later that year. When he was 16 years old he left school to pursue his musical career.

In 1960 they changed their name to The Beatles, and started playing in night clubs of Hamburg, with a great success. In 1961 Harrison and the band changed history; they earned a contract with EMI and their first single “Love Me Do” peaked at 17th place on the Record Retailer chart. Since that first release, his and career of the whole band progressed firmly, being the main source of his net worth. In the next few years, although McCartney and Lennon were mostly responsible for the band`s music and lyrics, Harrison had more and more impact on their style. In 1963, with their second album, Harrison got his first author note with the song “Don`t Bother me”. He then went on to create hits like “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “Here Comes the Sun” and “Something”. During the years, his influence became more radical, but still he was limited to few songs on albums, leading to his discomfort, and leaving the band in 1970.

After that he started his solo career, releasing successful albums like, “Living in the Material World”, “All Things Must Pass” and “Cloud Nine”. All these albums went platinum and gold, adding substantial amounts to his net worth. Following these success, Harrison formed a super group in 1988, The Traveling Wilburys, which also contributed to his fame and wealth. He was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; the first time as a member of The Beatles in 1988, and the second time in 2004, for his successful solo career.

Regarding his personal life, Harrison will also be remembered as a humanitarian and political activist. He protested against the war in Vietnam, and in 1971 organized a charity concert for Bangladesh; raising $240 000. In 1972 he received an honorary award from UNICEF for the charity work. During his life he became an enthusiast of Indian Culture, and made a pilgrimage to Bombay after which he devoted himself to Hinduism. He died from lung cancer on the 29th November 2001. His ashes were dispersed in the rivers Ganges and Yamuna.

He had a son, Dhanni, with his second wife Olivia Arias(1978-2001). His first marriage was with Pattie Boyd in 1966; they split up in 1974, and finally divorced in 1977.

35Began playing the slide guitar at age 27. At that time, Harrison began to incorporate it into his solo work, which allowed him to mimic many traditional Indian instruments, including the sarangi and the dilruba.
36In the early 1960s when The Beatles were a backup group for Tony Sheridan, George co-wrote with John Lennon an instrumental, "Cry For A Shadow". The title was a reference to a disbanded British group.
37During his November 1976 appearance on Saturday Night Live (1975), he appeared and sang, in a video titled "This Song". It referenced the then popular controversy over the similarity in the melody of his mega-hit "My Sweet Lord"(1971) and that of The Chiffons' 1963 hit "He's So Fine".

48Is portrayed by Chris Cound in The Linda McCartney Story (2000).
49He was the youngest member of The Beatles.
50Originally submitted his album "Somwhere In England" in 1980 with a psychedelic cover and four rather downbeat songs. Warner Brothers rejected the album and ordered a new cover and four new, more upbeat songs. It was around this time that John Lennon died, and Harrison decided to re-arrange his song "All Those Years Ago" as a tribute to Lennon and sing it himself (he originally thought it should be a Ringo Starr tune). Starr had recorded percussion, which was used in the final track. At the same time Paul McCartney asked if he could come over to George's house so George could do some guitar work on Paul's song "Wanderlust." It was the first time McCartney and Harrison had been together since the break-up of The Beatles in 1970. Harrison asked Paul, wife Linda McCartney and Denny Laine to record backing vocals for his song, "All Those Years Ago." After recording the song, McCartney decided that Harrison didn't need to record the guitar part and he'd use a horn ensemble instead. After three other songs were recorded, and a new photo shot at an art gallery in London, the album was resubmitted and accepted. Based on the strength of a new Beatles "reunion" (on "All Those Years Ago"), the album was released to critical and commercial excitement. "All Those Years Ago" became Harrison's first top-ten hit in eight years.
51After eight years being idle, he decided to tour in 1974 despite a bad voice due to some throat problems. The tour was a critical and commercial disaster, with unfair severe criticism for the opening act of "Ravi Shankar and Friends", Harrison's voice (which was called "Dark Hoarse") and his preaching. He was so disillusioned and angry with the incident that he never toured in America again, only going to Japan in 1992 for a very large sum and Eric Clapton's back-up band.
52Disillusioned with working for a major label, he quickly and hastily recorded "Gone Troppo" in 1982 to fulfill his contract. When asked to renew, he refused. He also refused to do any publicity for the album, which he thought of as second-rate. Due to the shoddy publicity campaign by Warner Brothers for the album, it was a flop and its highest chart position was #108. Harrison decided not to make another album for five years. When he did, the album, "Cloud Nine", was a smash, landing in the #1 spot.
53Was actually hurt by the critical savaging of Shanghai Surprise (1986) and its subsequent financial failure, because he had very little to do with it and his name was on the film. In later years he said that his songs were the victims of the film's failure.
54The only one of The Beatles whose childhood was not marred by personal tragedy.
55After his lung cancer was found to have returned in March 2001, Harrison was operated on in June and had half of one lung removed. By November of that year however the cancer had spread to his brain, making recovery impossible.
56Together with Eric Clapton, he wrote the Cream hit "Badge." He also played the song's lead guitar track up to the bridge.
57In 1978, The Rolling Stones album "Some Girls" was withdrawn from stores after several stars whose photos appeared on the original cover (including Lucille Ball, Raquel Welch, Farrah Fawcett, Lee Majors and Red Buttons) threatened to sue. The album was re-released with a "censored" cover; Harrison's photo appears on both versions. He joked publicly that he'd sue the Stones "if they removed his photo."
58Brother-in-law of Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac (Fleetwood was married to Jenny Boyd, Pattie Boyd's sister).
59Treated for throat cancer in 1997, which went into remission the next year.
60Was a member of The Traveling Wilburys, along with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra.
61Although rightly considered the shyest pf The Beatles, Harrison loved comedy and often associated with Monty Python through the 1970s.
62Was an ace Monopoly player.
63Spoke German, but not fluently
64When Lorne Michaels offered The Beatles $3000 to appear on Saturday Night Live (1975), Harrison actually took him up on the offer and performed on the show. The joke was that Michaels was offering $750 per Beatle, and Harrison wanted the full $3000. As a tribute, this appearance was re-aired as part of "Weekend Update" the Saturday after Harrison died.
65He was the youngest of four children (Louise, Harold Jr. and Peter were his older siblings), and came from the most "normal" home of any of The Beatles. Father Harry drove a Liverpool city bus, while mother Louise gave dance lessons at their home. The Harrisons were common-sense people, but allowed their children to pursue their dreams, and encouraged George to take up music. Mrs. Harrison invited The Beatles over to practice early in their career, and sometimes came to see them perform. The family remained close, even after daughter Louise married and moved to America, and George became famous; Louise frequently made herself available for media interviews about her younger brother, and hosted his early American visits. He provided enough money for his parents to retire comfortably, while his home at Friar Park was a family affair indeed, tended by he and his older brothers. His mother died of cancer in 1970, and he wrote "Deep Blue" in reaction to her death. His father died (also of cancer) in 1978, having adopted some of his son's spiritual beliefs; George and wife Olivia later related that they'd awoken that same night, to a strange blue light in the room, and a vision of Harry smiling at them.
66A federal court in New York ruled in 1976 that his song "My Sweet Lord" was a copyright infringement on the 1963 Laurie Records hit "He's So Fine" by The Chiffons. "My Sweet Lord" contained a similar repetition of two musical phrases ("sol-mi-re" and "sol-la-do-la-do") found in "He's So Fine," along with identical harmonies. Although the court found that Harrison did not intend to plagiarize "He's So Fine," it ruled that, having been familiar with the song, he had "subconsciously" copied its melody (Bright Tunes Music Corp. v. Harrisongs Music, Ltd., 420 F.Supp. 177 (S.D.N.Y. Aug 31, 1976). Appeals dragged the case on into the 1990s, with Harrison's former manager Allen Klein becoming the plaintiff when he bought Bright Tunes. Harrison eventually ended up owning both songs, while Klein's reputation suffered from his "changing sides" in the suit.
67Was called "my archangel" by Srila Prabhupada, founder of the Hare Krishna movement.
68Overcame both hepatitis in the mid-1970s (which caused a delay in the release of his album "Thirty-Three and 1/3"), and a cocaine addiction in the early 1980s.
69Harrison was cremated within hours of his death, and his ashes were later scattered along the Ganges River in India, in accordance with his last wishes.
70A controversy arose in the days after Harrison's death, when it turned out his death certificate listed a bogus address; it was revealed he had died at Paul McCartney's Los Angeles house, whose address they'd wanted to keep secret. McCartney described the late Harrison as "my baby brother".
71Had his own professional 16-track recording studio installed at Friar Park, where nearly all his solo records after "All Things Must Pass" were made (album credits usually mention "Friar Park Studio", or "F.P.S.H.O.T."). In the 1980s Jeff Lynne, used to working with 48-track digital machines, found it startling to have to rethink his approach to record with Harrison, but found it refreshing in the long run (the band Shakespear's Sister also borrowed the studio in the early 1990s, to record "Hormonally Yours").
72Wrote an autobiography titled "I Me Mine" in the late 1970s (which he described in the introduction as "the small change of a short lifetime"), and included reproductions of the original handwritten lyrics to nearly all his songs. The book was originally issued as an exclusive leather-bound edition by Genesis Books for about $350 per copy; a less-expensive hardback edition was later published by Simon and Schuster.
73Was the first of The Beatles to produce a "solo" album, with his soundtrack album to Joe Massot's film Wonderwall (1968) (Paul McCartney had earlier composed the score for The Family Way (1966), but did not produce or play on the recordings). Songs were recorded both in India (featuring Ashish Khan and guests) and England; the English tracks featured Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Peter Tork (each performing under pseudonyms) and former Beatles rivals The Remo Four, from Liverpool.
74In January of 2002 the re-release of "My Sweet Lord" reached #1 in the UK, replacing Aaliyah's "More Than A Woman". It was the first time there have been two consecutive posthumous #1 hits in the UK.
75Was the second of The Beatles to become a vegetarian, after Ringo Starr but before Paul McCartney. According to his first wife Pattie Boyd, Harrison would allow neither meat nor fish to be brought into his house.
76In the early 1970s Eric Clapton fell madly in love with Pattie Boyd (at the time married to Harrison) and wrote "Layla" about her; when she refused to leave George for him, Clapton became so distraught and depressed he turned to heroin and developed a severe addiction. By 1974, feeling abandoned by George's obsession with Indian culture, Pattie left George for Eric and the Harrisons' divorce was finalized in 1977. Two years later, Pattie and Eric were married (they divorced in 1988). Through it all, George, Eric and Pattie remained the best of friends - George attended the Claptons' wedding reception and commented, "I'd rather she was with him than some dope". (Clapton and Harrison called each other "husbands-in-law.").
77In 1968 Eric Clapton played guitar on George's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on The Beatles' "White Album". Also, George was at Eric's home in England and wrote "Here Comes the Sun" while skipping a board meeting for the band's company, Apple Corps.
78George met Pattie Boyd on the set of A Hard Day's Night (1964). She was engaged at the time, but George kept asking her out until she gave in. They were married in 1966.
79Liked jelly babies (a softer version of jelly beans).
80Got a job as an apprentice electrician at age 16 but didn't have the interest to continue it. With one son a mechanic and another a groundskeeper, father Harry hoped his sons would go into business together once George finished his apprenticeship. Harry let George quit to become a working musician, though, when The Beatles began to get weekly bookings, figuring he was young and could still "start over" if music didn't work out.
81Attended Dovedale Road Primary School (now Dovedale Road Junior School) and the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys (now the Liverpool Institute of the Performing Arts).
82In 1979 he was co-founder, executive producer and principal partner of HandMade Films, a position he held until 1994.
83He and his fellow members of The Beatles were awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1965 Queen's Birthday Honours List.
84Son, Dhani Harrison (born 1 August 1978) was a student at Brown University.
85He played 26 instruments: guitar, sitar, four-string guitar, bass guitar, arp bass, violin, tamboura, dobro, swordmandel, tabla, organ, piano, moog synthesizer, harmonica, autoharp, glockenspiel, vibraphone, xylophone, claves, African drum, conga drum, tympani, ukulele, mandolin, marimba and Jal-Tarang.
86Wrote the introduction to a biography on sitarist Ravi Shankar.
87Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Beatles January 20, 1988.
88On 30 December 1999, an intruder broke into his Oxfordshire mansion, stabbing him multiple times in the chest. Harrison and his wife fought the intruder and detained him for the police.
89Lead guitarist of The Beatles.
90A good deal of confusion as to his real birthday was solved when a family birth record noted him as being born shortly before midnight around 11:50 P.M.) on February 24th, 1943. He had believed his birthday was February 25th for his entire life.
91As of 1998, his older sister Louise Harrison was living in southern Illinois.

Quotes

#Quote
1If we'd know we were going to be the Beatles, we'd have tried harder.
2I believe I love my guitar more than the others love theirs. For [John Lennon] and [Paul McCartney], songwriting is pretty important and guitar playing is a means to an end.
3[in 1987, about the inspiration for the song "Taxman"] It's not so bad these days, is it? They pay 52% or something. In those days we used to make a pound and give 'em 19 shillings and threepence out of a pound. But it's not quite as bad. But, you know, you have to live where you want to live, really.
4[on life and experience] Experience is the main reason why we're here, I think, in the world to gain experience and from our experience we gain knowledge. Oh, I think so, anyway. Knowledge and if we get any knowledge then we gain liberation, you know, we free ourselves.
5[on the process of making his album "Cloud Nine"] I'm at ease with myself, maybe. I'm happy to be making records, by getting away from the music business I was in a good mood to do it, you know, it's just the fun of doing it and just trying to sustain the energy and the interest.
6[on creating the album "Cloud Nine"] I thought, "I'm not going to make one of them, you know, sort of clattery records like everybody else seems to be doing this period. I'm going to make a record like something like I did 20 years ago". Just like a rock n' roll band making a record. We had real saxes and real guitars, real pianos, real drums, real people playing real songs.
7[on Ringo Starr] Yeah, it's like a built-in thing. If I play a song to Ringo I don't need to say to him, "You know, I want it to go like this"; I just play it and he joins in. He's got a great feel. Ringo's like I sort of don't practice much on the guitar, I sort of pick up and play it when I need to and he's the same. He never practices, he's a very naughty boy. But he just gets his sticks and he just does it and it sounds just like Ringo and he can hold the rock steady all day long.
8[about Eric Clapton] I've been friends with Eric for years. And I think I always will be. He's a lovely fella and I love him very dearly. And he, and I just called him up again and you know I'm doing an album ["Cloud Nine"]. "Eric could you come and play?". Sure, he came over and played great stuff. "Devil's Radio", "Cloud Nine", he does a nice little solo on the end of "That's What It Takes" and also the other one on the second side, "The Wreck of the Hesperus.
9[on his song "Someplace Else"] I did write the song specifically at the request of the producer of the' Madonna' movie and it was the love song for the naughty couple. So I re-cut that song "Someplace Else" and the other song called "Breath Away from Heaven", which is slightly Chinese-sounding. Well, it's supposed to be just slightly Chinese-sounding, I re-grooved that as well from the soundtrack album, from the soundtrack version. So those two were both from Shanghai Surprise (1986).
10[on his song "Just for Today"[ It says, "Just for today, don't worry about anything, just try and deal with one thing at a time". Bbasically, it's really for everybody. It's generally a reminder just for today to keep cool and don't try and deal with everything all at once and that kind of thing.
11[about his song "Got My Mind Set On You"] Ah, it was an old song from about 1959, I think, the writer's name is Rudy Clark. I don't know who he is but it was an excellent song, but the old version I heard of it was a bit antique and doesn't really sound like my version of it, but the song itself had stuck in my head for 20-odd years and just came out on this album ["Cloud Nine"]. But it rocks along, it's quite a good choice.
12[on how he picked the title for his album "Cloud Nine"] I couldn't really think of, I racked my brain for weeks and months to try and think of a title because I was trying not to have a song title. We had various titles, had hundreds of them, you know, but the next day none of them seemed to work, you know. It was called "Fab" for a bit, but a lot of people liked "Fab" because they get the joke, it was called so many things in the end I just had to have a title, otherwise the album would never have come out. As there were clouds on the cover, we called it "Cloud Nine". I mean, when you look at the cover it could have been called "Spot the Loony!". But I thought, you know, they may not go for that.
13[in 1997, about his battle with throat cancer] I got it purely from smoking. Luckily, they found that this nodule was more of a warning than anything else. I'm not going to die on you folks just yet. Life is like a raindrop on a lotus leaf. Everybody realizes that you are either a very lucky person or you're not.
14It is better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite.
15[on the reasons why he became a vegetarian] People are simply screwing up when they go out and buy beefsteak, which is killing them with cancer and heart troubles. The stuff costs a fortune, too. You could feed a thousand people with lentil soup for the cost of half a dozen filets.
16[on his teenage years in Liverpool] You couldn't get a cup of sugar, let alone a rock-and-roll record.
17[at his induction into the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame] It's a shame Paul [Paul McCartney] can't be here, because he was the one who had the speech in his pocket.
18[his last public statement, issued after his death] Everything else can wait but the search for God cannot wait, and love one another.
19I'd rather be a musician than a rock star.
