'Quiet Beatle' left a legacy: Letter

On Nov. 29, 2001, the world bid a sad farewell to a second member of the legendary "Fab Four," George Harrison, who succumbed to cancer. Although George Harrison has been labeled "the Quiet Beatle," his artistic efforts spoke in extremely loud volumes that simply cannot be ignored.George Harrison is best remembered for his work with the Beatles, recording pop standards such as "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun." He was one of the first to introduce Indian influences and instruments to Western music. Harrison also had a deep social awareness side to his music and projects. His song "Taxman" bitterly complained about abusive tax systems and the toll they take on democratic governments. George's Concert for Bangladesh in 1971 raised $243,418.50 for the United Nations Children's Fund to provide relief for the youngsters of refugees caught in the turmoil of political disorder and devastating floods. Of course, George Harrison worked on other worthwhile projects that enhanced social consciousness.
