Today on the Fab Four at Four, I'm focusing on George Harrison.
The youngest of The Beatles, George joined early Beatle predecessor band The Quarrymen when we was just 15, have been denied membership at 14. As a Beatle, Harrison wrote "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun".
After The Beatles, he enjoyed a successful solo career, and in 1988 co-founded the supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, with Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Harrison number 11 in their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". He was a close friend of Eric Clapton, and is the only Beatle to have published an autobiography — I, Me, Mine (1980). Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
