George Harrison was the lead guitarist of The Beatles. During the band’s phenomenally successful career, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were its main songwriters. However, Harrison generally wrote and/or sang lead on one or two songs for each album. His compositions earned him growing admiration as a considerable talent in his own right. Although he wrote some of the Beatles' best known songs, he was overshadowed by the Lennon/McCartney duo. However, as the years went on as a member of The Beatles, Harrison grew as an artist. Harrison became attracted to Indian music and Hinduism. Both would subsequently play a prominent role in Harrison’s life and music. Harrison was not a virtuoso guitarist, especially in the early days of the Beatles' recording career. Several of Harrison's famous Beatles guitar solos were recorded under specific directions from Paul McCartney, who on occasion demanded that Harrison play what he envisioned virtually note-for-note.
In 2003, Harrison was included in Rolling Stone Magazines list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Harrison died on 29 November 2001. He was 58 years old and died in a Hollywood Hills mansion that was once leased by Sir Paul McCartney.
