Remembering George Harrison

George Harrison passed away this day in 2001.  The "quiet Beatle" will long be remembered for his great contributions both solo and with The Beatles.  In addition to the great songs he wrote, his guitar playing has long been studied.  Harrison joined The Quarrymen after Paul McCartney told John Lennon about a friend of his named George that could play the hit instrumental "Raunchy" note for note.  Here's a look back at his stellar career:

"Roll Over Beethoven"

"Don't Bother Me" (first song he wrote to be recorded by The Beatles)

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (acoustic version)

"My Sweet Lord" (live)

"All Those Years Ago"

"Got My Mind Set On You"

Traveling Wilburys- "Handle With Care"

"Any Road"
