Tuesday Tunes: George Harrison

Wednesday would have been George Harrison's 66th birthday, so over at The Music Memoirs they're asking us to tell them about 5 things we like about George Harrison, so here goes:

1. Although obviously not as prolific as Lennon and McCartney, he wrote some great Beatles songs. Something comes to mind immediately, as does Taxman (mainly because The Jam's Start liberally borrows from it).

2. He helped finance the Monty Python films, plus he formed Handmade Films that made all sorts of great films such as Time Bandits and Withnail and I.

3. He made some fun videos. When We Was Fab springs to mind.

4. He was a pioneer of charity concerts with the Concert for Bangladesh he organised back in 1971.

5. I quite liked his general demeanour as the quiet Beatle.
