Written by Rosana Hart

Propelled into fame as one ofrepparttar Beatles, along with Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and Ringo Starr, George Harrison was known asrepparttar 138046 "quiet one" ofrepparttar 138047 group, and also asrepparttar 138048 "spiritual one." He wasrepparttar 138049 lead guitarist.

He happened to meet Ravi Shankar at a dinner inrepparttar 138050 sixties, and Shankar offered to teach himrepparttar 138051 basics of playingrepparttar 138052 sitar. This began a lifelong friendship, and Harrison's fascination withrepparttar 138053 sitar affectedrepparttar 138054 Beatles' work after that. He immersed himself in Indian music, playingrepparttar 138055 sitar for years, only picking uprepparttar 138056 guitar when recordings required it.

His spiritual life grew out of that time. He said, "Having all these material things, I wanted something more. And it happened that at justrepparttar 138057 time I wanted it, it came to me inrepparttar 138058 form of Ravi Shankar, Indian music, andrepparttar 138059 whole Indian philosophy." He introducedrepparttar 138060 other Beatles to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and transcendental meditation.

Though Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote most ofrepparttar 138061 Beatles' songs in their earlier years together, George Harrison later wrote some of their most famous songs, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Something." Afterrepparttar 138062 breakup ofrepparttar 138063 Beatles, he had a hit single, "My Sweet Lord." He produced films withrepparttar 138064 comedy group Monty Python's Flying Circus. Later he produced a very popular album called "Cloud Nine."
