When it comes to inspirational stories, George Harrison is at the top of the list, according to many individuals. Harrison played the lead guitar for the Beatles and also wrote a great deal of the songs for the group.
Born in Liverpool, England in the year of 1943, George Harrison had many musical interests that displayed a high level of diversity. He was born into a family that struggled financially. His mother stayed at home, though, occasionally taught the art of ballroom dancing. His father was a bus driver.
While Harrison enjoyed the company he kept at school, he did not care much for academics. This held true after he played around with the electric guitar and developed an interest in American-based rock n’ roll, and decided that he enjoyed all things music-related.
“Try to realize it’s all within yourself no one else can make you change, and to see you’re only very small and life slows on within you and without you.” – George Harrison
When the Beatles first started, John Lennon showed a high level of hesitancy to allow George Harrison into the band. He was 14 years old at the time. Harrison took off and contributed highly to the success of the Beatles.
Throughout his lifetime, he dabbled in music with the Beatles, other artists, and solo. He was a long-time smoker and eventually developed throat cancer. That was the start of many complications to ensue.
Not long after the diagnosis, he and his then wife, Olivia, were the victims of a home invasion which included a collapsed lung and stab wounds. The cancer was eliminated, but returned and spread to his brain. Despite the hardships, he continued to be thankful for his life and the fact that he got to do what he wanted – play music. In 2001, he died with his wife and son by his side.
To this day, though, he continues to be one of the revered musicians of all time.
