The definitive new biography of the most enigmatic Beatle
As a Beatle, Harrison underwent a bewilderingly compressed early adulthood, buffeted by unprecedented levels of fame and success. The notoriously shy performer mostly ceded the spotlight to his more flamboyant bandmates John, Paul, and Ringo, but after the band?s breakup, Harrison charted a new path all his own. In this elegant, in-depth biography, renowned music journalist Graeme Thomson tracks Harrison assiduously through his many changes and conflicts, from schoolboy guitarist to global superstar, God-seeker to independent filmmaker, and marks the perennial struggle of a man attempting to walk a spiritual path lined with temptation.
Drawing on scores of new interviews with close friends and collaborators, rigorous research and critical insight, George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door is a fascinating account of the motives and varied achievements of an often misunderstood man.
