Billy's Books 81: George Harrison: The Reluctant Beatle

Back to the Beatles! Here's the new biography George Harrison: The Reluctant Beatle by Philip Norman. George is the most paradoxical of Beatles -- the most cosmic yet most down-to-Earth, the nicest and the meanest, etc.

I gotta say, when the book gets into the '70s, George does not come across well. If you don't want to be discouraged by cynical or cruel behaviour, maybe don't read it after all...

One last factoid: The remastered All Things Must Pass (2000) outsold the original, going seven times Platinum. Dang.

As always, thanks to Saint Louis Public Library for the book. Support your local library!
