Lola's English Page Biographies

George Harrison has always been an enigma to Beatle fans. Unlike John or Paul, he did not push himself forward into the public spotlight. Instead, he remained in the background, a seemingly shy young man who played a guitar somehow too large for his frail frame. His momentary approaches to Paul's microphone to sing harmonies were just that, momentary. And there was little doubt that it was, after all, Paul's microphone and not his.

At times he was more like a sessions player than like a full-fledged member of the group. In reality, however, George was the backbone of the group. It was his guitar work that maintained an orderly arrangement to the flighty musical eccentricities of John and Paul.
