Nearly all the books about the Beatles sound the same This one stands out for its exuisite writing and its analysis of the most interesting Beatle Harrison s uest for creative freedom and his mission to understand the meaning of his success and life make intriguing reading Being a Beatles fan I really enjoyed this insight into the life of George Harrison I never realised what a complex man and musician he was This is about George Harrison the Generation person the musician the music and filmroducer and entrepreneur then an ex and at times disgruntled Beatle and makes for a fascinating read
whether you are a Beatles fan or not It certainly rompted me to you are a Beatles fan or not It certainly rompted me to some of George s solo albums to hear what was being commented on in the bookGood stuff I was Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girls Heart prepared to not really like this book because of all the reviews I had read I was totally surprised Not only did I not find the book as negative as some of the reviewers had stated but I found it uite complimentary in many areas This is an even handed biography that has been extensively researched by both talking with several keylayers in George Harrison s life and utilizing books and news articles for further inform By far the most detailed account of Harrison s life available Thomson tackles the trickier Pirate Gold personal aspects with aplomb illuminating his subject s many strengths as well as his weaknesses But he misses the boat when it comes to Harrison s spirituality seemingly not grasping the full impact of religious devotion on an artist s life and work He also oddly largely overlooks Harrison s uniue contributions to his instrument I would recommendairing this with Joshua Greene s Here Comes the Sun The Spiritual and Musical Journey of George Harrison which borders on hagiography but gets the aforementioned two details exactly #Right For A Fuller Portrait #for a fuller The Heart of Cool portrait HarrisonBehind The Locked Doorby Graeme Thomson2015Overlook Omnibus 35 50Known as the uiet Beatle George Harrison s lifelong inner turmoil balancing his spiritual beliefs with the material needs and demands of his life career and fame drove him to become a very reclusiveersonFrom The uarryman to the Beatles his fascination with Eastern hilosophy and religion to studying with Ravi Shankar and his retirement to Friars Park his estate in England this is a solid biography of a very complex and interesting manEach of Harrisons solo albums and guest appearances are given detailed synopsis although Thomson does say he believes Harrisons career was at its top when All Things Must Pass was released and everything since then ha Three and a half stars rounded up to four The uiet Beatle George Harrison was always my favorite This was an interesting look at the man and his music mainly focusing on the music he created And in the end the love you take is eual to the love you make George Harrison Behind the Locked Door is in many ways the definitive biography of The uiet Beatle While not as salacious as No One Here Gets out Alive or The Dirt it like its subject uietly unfolds as one of the best in its genre Graeme Thomson s book succeeds on all levels The book is balan.
