Product Description

Review

"A well-written and informative volume." (Record Collector)

Product Description

George Harrison was always known as the 'quiet Beatle' As part of the biggest band in pop history, he took a back seat to Paul McCartney and John Lennon, but his talent shone through in the composition of classic songs such as 'Something' and 'Here Comes The Sun'. In his solo career he occasionally threatened to eclipse both John and Paul on the world stage, and he joined forces with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff lynne to create the massively succsessful supergroup the Traveling Wilburys.



However, the success of his professional life was often met by turmoil in his private life, and the loss of first wife Patti to best friend Eric Clapton, the traumatic attempt on his life by a knife wielding intruder and his final struggle against cancer meant that George Harrison's life was nothing if not dramatic.



Bestselling author Marc Shapiro has exclusively interviewed friends and former colleagues of the enigmatic guitar legend. This revealing biography reaffirms Harrison's importance as an innovative and hugely talented musician and shows that, as a member of the most important band ever, as well as in his multi-faceted career after the Beatles, George Harrison was no ordinary man.

1.0 out of 5 stars This doesn't pass 8 Dec 2002
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
You really can't write a book about a memeber of the most famous group in the world, and not talk to any of the survivors. That is not if you want to have a book that anyone will want to read more than once. I read it cover to cover, and didn't learn anything about George that I didn't already know from reading general Beatles books. With George's life there is a place for a really good biography, with details of his life, beliefs and music. This is not that book.
I tried to post the review without any stars, which it seems is not possible, therefore 1 star for trying (just.)

Whilst there is little doubt that the author of this book has a love of his subject, the result is a brief, poorly written, error-filled summary of George Harrison, presenting anectdotes & conjecture as hard facts. There is an error on nearly every page & cannot be recommended to any serious student of Beatles lore.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Garbage 9 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
There should be a law against people like Shapiro. George Harrison dies, and twenty minutes later this "cash in" appears in the shops. No research, other than a solitary interview with Delaney Bramlett, and so many errors, as to make this absolutely worthless.

I am a big Beatles fan and I recieved this book as a birthday present last month. It is terrible. The author seems to base the whole book on rumours and stories that everyone knows. An example would be the whole clapton and patti affair - the very same story is in "the love you make" by Peter Brown. It seems as if it was just hurriedly thown together with very little thought been put into it. It is very short and not detailed at all. The author abviously carried out not one interview for the book. I mean any bealtes fan would be able to write a better bio than this. I would love a detailed bio on GH to be written, this time by a beatles expert or someone that actually knew him. A person that would check out all the facts first and not base the whole book on rumour. No care has gone into it, its awful. There are even very few illustrations in the book. Geogre Harrison deserves more than this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Atrocious hack job 3 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
This is possibly the worst biography of a rock star ever published, atrociously composed, badly edited and appallingly written. It's a hack job, cut-and-paste effort which should never have been released.
