Born George Harrison, 25 February 1943, in Liverpool (died 29 November 2001 in Los Angeles), GH was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. From 1965 onwards, most Beatles albums contained at least two Harrison compositions e.g. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun", and "Something", which became the Beatles' second-most covered song.
As a music and film producer, Harrison founded Dark Horse Records in 1974 and co-founded HandMade Films in 1978. Harrison released several best-selling singles and albums as a solo performer, and in 1988 co-founded the platinum-selling supergroup the Traveling Wilburys. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 11 in their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". He is a two-time Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame inductee – as a member of the Beatles (1988), and (posthumously) for his solo career (2004).
