Martin Scorsese Takes On Ex-Beatle George Harrison

on Wednesday, Aug. 24th

George Harrison, songwriter and lead guitarist of the Beatles, died in 2001 from brain cancer, but he left behind a large musical heritage that included such songs as “Here Comes the Sun,” “Something” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

In October, nearing the 10th anniversary of Harrison’s death, HBO will debut Martin Scorsese’s two-part documentary of the “Quiet Beatle” entitled George Harrison: Living in a Material World.

According to Rolling Stone, the film features new interviews from remaining Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as Yoko Ono, George Martin, Tom Petty, and Eric Clapton, and infused with Harrison’s own archival footage of the Beatles on tour.
