George Harrison Quotes (Author of The Beatles Anthology)
How George Harrison Made The Greatest Beatles Solo Album Of Them All
Given his own studio, his own canvas, and his own space, George Harrison did what no other solo Beatle did on All Things Must Pass : He changed the terms of what an album could be.
