New biography on George Harrison.
I also like books that show George respect instead of criticizing him. Here Comes the Sun book showed a lot of respect for George by Joshua M. Greene.
My review of this book is now up at my website: http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2013/11/book-review-george-harrison-behind.html
Hi there, I have a couple of questions: 1) You talk about his musical decline after the early seventies, but does the book say that "Thirty-Three and 1/3" and "George Harrison" are bad albums? I think they're both great, with concise, melodic songs for the most part. (Same with "Cloud Nine.") 2) Why isn't the book called "Behind THAT Locked Door"?
To your question two, I have two theories about it. One: I think it has more to do with how George lived than anything. He was a pretty private person, though he had many friends. So he lived behind a locked door, not an open one. Two: I don't know if the book is an authorized biography or Olivia OK'd it, so maybe the author could not get the rights to use the actual song title as the book title.
I'm not sure it's authorized, but both Dhani and Olivia talked to the author for it, so it's probably as close as you can get to authorized without being authorized 8-)
This book is exciting! Like your review DrBeatle! I'm so glad that the book was able to capture perhaps the true essence of George. Very few books do that, or are unnecessarily critical of him. It's good that George is well respected in this book. R.I.P George Harrison 1943- 2001 forevermore xx
