Interview: Ravi Shankar on His Last Conversations with George Harrison

Ten years after his death, something feels right in knowing the last communication George Harrison had with friend and mentor Ravi Shankar was without words.Known early on as the quiet Beatle, Harrison was also the youngest of the four and arguably his group’s most musically mature force. For years he kept quiet when the others dismissed his songwriting, and only seemed to become outspoken following those stormy “Let It Be” sessions that forever fractured the band. Still, his contributions, though few when stacked against the long and winding Lennon/McCartney catalog, stand as some of the Beatles’ most revered work. There was “Something,” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” But it was Harrison’s Indian influence by way of sitarist Shankar that served as a catalyst for the Beatles’ latter half — and another beginning for popular music. Harrison and Shankar let their music do much of the talking as Harrison’s health declined and eventually claimed him on November 29, 2001.
