On This Date, November 29th, in 2001: George Harrison died of brain cancer in a Hollywood Hills mansion that was once leased by Paul McCartney. He was 58 years old. I’ve been thinking of The Beatles and George (my favorite Beatle) so much lately, not only with the recent Beatles on Record special that was on the History Channel a few days ago, and the 39th anniversary of the release of All Things Must Pass, but also having spent a significant amount of time yesterday downloading all of The Beatles’ 16 CD remasters into my iTunes library (thanks Geoffrey). I love The Beatles so much, and it’s endlessly comforting to still have their music all around me even nearly forty years after they broke up. I miss you, George!

Thanks for the remembrance and the sentiments Gail. I think he was a man who really cared about the world. Bless his spirit, and yours too! xx David
Thanks for the reminder, Gail. My favorite Harrison record was “Dark Horse” back in ’74.
George Harrison became a follower of Hare Krishna. This was the greatest achievement of his life.
Gracias por esas palabras y l recordatorio. Me fascinan The Beatles y mi preferido siempre George Harrison.
Gail, it took quite a while to realize that George was indeed the coolest Beatle… quite a status level, given the cool-factors of his bandmates. Not a saint, but he possessed a warm, genuine quality that appeared to shine brighter with age.
Here comes a cloud, there goes the sun.
