How George Harrison split the Beatles
Biographer Hunter Davies remembers the Quiet Beatle - whose ambition was the real reason for the band’s breakup

George had been sitting for a long time cross-legged on the floor. He was putting new strings on his sitar while telling me about his spiritual life, about transcendental meditation, about reincarnation and stuff. I might well have been ever so slightly dozing off. This was 1968 and we were in his ranch-style bungalow in Esher, Surrey. George was in one of his more spiritual periods.

Interesting article, indeed. Thanks for sharing. I haven't watched "George Harrison: Living in the Material World" yet, but I'm planning on doing it soon.

From the title you'd get the impression nothing John or Paul did or thought or said in the last few yrs. of the Beatles mattered. Stupid hyped up article. I'm going to read it but with a heck of a lot of cynism about the author. Would anyone read it if the headline was 'George Harrisons relatively minor rule in the Beatles break-up. If Paul and John hadn't got fed up of each other and all the other problems weren't there and they, John and Paul, wanted to carry on then they'd have carried on and George would have just had to like it or leave.

Jesus! I've read it and it's awful. Why exactly was George responsible for splitting the Beatles? I don't think the author even refers to that in the article even though that's what it's supposed to be about. Just another rehash of old stories given a pathetically self-interested attention grabbing headline.
