Last Updated by Kellie May on

What do Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Billy Preston and Ringo Starr all have in common?  They all are fans of George Harrison and on the one-year anniversary of his death, they all came together to perform a collection of Harrison’s music for a live audience in a special concert – Concert for George.

This week we’re airing Concert for George, which highlights Harrison’s life accomplishments and his greatest hits including, “The Lumberjack Song,” “Here Comes the Sun” and “Old Brown Shoe.” 

George Harrison was a singer, songwriter, humanitarian, film producer and an avid gardener, who rose to fame in the 60s as a member of the Beatles. After the Beatles, Harrison moved on to a solo career that spanned more than 30 years. Through endless collaborations, 12 solo albums and 35 singles, Harrison’s legacy on music cannot be denied.

Concert for George is directed by Harrison’s longtime friend, Eric Clapton, and is a cinematic tribute to the musician who transformed the revolution in the music industry with his talent.
