Nearly three decades since his tragic death of lung cancer, Beatles’ star George Harrison will have a new collection of his best-loved songs hit the racks in June.
The compilation will feature music from Harrison’s solo career, like “My Sweet Lord”, “Isn’t It A Pity”, “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” and “Got My Mind Set On You”. The album titled, “Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison”, will also feature Beatle tracks from his 1971 Concert For Bangladesh; “Something”, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “Here Comes The Sun”.
Harrison was also honored this week, receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of fans, family and fellow Beatles’ band mates. Paul McCartney and Tom Petty joined his widow, Olivia, and his son Dhani to celebrate the momentous occasion.
Olivia Harrison told the masses of fans, which sported Beatles’ t-shirts and signs expressing their love for the late-Beatle, that Harrison was a beautiful, mystical man living in a material world. He and John Lennon are the only Beatles to have their own stars on the Walk of Fame.
