Happy Belated Birthday!

While I know it was Sunday/ Monday I'd like to dedicate this post to a certain Beatle named George Harrison. A great man. He was the first Beatle to meet another one. He and Paul went to the same school and met on the bus. John went to the school too but they didn't meet him until later. He was the youngest of them all and joined the group The Quarry Men at fourteen. The group consisted of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Stu Sutcliff, and Pete best. All the others were fifteen or sixteen. When the others were eighteen they went to Hamburg, Germany. George was there illegally. There they saw another group called Rory Storm and the Hurricanes and there they found Richard Starkey or Ringo Starr. They made a success there and became famous. They changed their name to The Silver Beatles and then The Beatles. I say Sunday/ Monday because most of George's life he thought his birthday was the 25th, even though records do show he was born on the 24th. In the late 60's he became engulfed in Indian culture and dedicated his life to this culture. He died in 2001 from cancer. Most likely from smoking. Some more facts:
  • He met his first wife Pattie while working on the movie "A Hard Day's Night"
  • She left him for his friend Eric Clapton. for which he divorced her
  • He met his second wife Olivia and were married until his death
  • He and Olivia had one son, Dhani Harrison. Which is a tribute to how much he loved Eastern culture.
  • He loved "Monty Pythons Flying Circus" and was good friends with Eric Idol
  • He loved to garden
  • He wrote/ sang some of the best Beatle songs
  • He's my favorite
  • He was from Liverpool like all the other members of the band
  • Seriously they were ALL from Liverpool

George and Pattie
