George Harrison (1943-2001)
Everybody's third-favorite member of The Beatles died November 29, 2001. He was the first member of the group to release a solo album, and he also has the highest-selling solo album of any former member of The Beatles.
I was in the 10th grade when Harrison died. I knew of The Beatles and enjoyed what I had heard of them up to that point. I didn't know much about Harrison in particular. I got much more into the group in college and the members solo careers.
Just thought I would commemorate the anniversary of his death. Next year will be the 15th anniversary, so I would expect more of a mainstream memorial.
