George Harrison’s Last Heartbreaking Wish, Fulfilled by His Son

George Harrison's son shares last heartbreaking wish of his famous Beatle father

George Harrison, famously known as “The Quiet One” in The Beatles, sadly passed away in 2001 at the age of 58. However, his son Dhani Harrison is keeping his father’s legacy alive by fulfilling his last heartbreaking, but loving, wish.

The Beatles, a legendary band from Liverpool, England, revolutionized the direction of popular music in the twentieth century. They created “Beatlemania”, which spread across the world at the speed of sound. Along with Elvis Presley, The Beatles marked the start of the rock n’ roll era of music. Their hits are still played on radio stations worldwide, and the band was loved by almost everyone.

But The Beatles’ influence went beyond just music. They also had a significant impact on fashion trends and lifestyles at the time.

In the book “Fifty Years Adrift”, author Derek Taylor describes the experience of going to a Beatles concert as something truly special. The ceaseless, frantic, and hysterical screams that greeted the band were unlike anything he had ever witnessed before. The Beatles’ music captured the hearts of fans around the world and made them a band for the ages.

Although John Lennon and Paul McCartney are recognized as the main writers of The Beatles’ lyrics and music, George Harrison also proved himself to be a talented songwriter. Some argue that he was responsible for writing some of The Beatles’ most beautiful songs, including “Something”, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “Here Comes the Sun”, and “If I Needed Someone”. George Harrison may not have been the most outspoken member of the band, but his music spoke volumes.

To be the child of a celebrity is already challenging, but being the child of a Beatle is something else entirely. Despite the expectations from fans, several children of the Beatles, including Dhani Harrison, have pursued careers in music.

George Harrison’s son, Dhani Harrison, embarked on a different musical path than his father. He wanted to create a name for himself and not just be known as “The son of George Harrison”. Growing up surrounded by his father’s music and influence, Dhani developed a passion for making records from an early age. He learned the ropes of the recording studio and was determined to carve out his own musical career.

Unfortunately, Dhani’s journey took a different turn when he discovered his father had just months to live. This devastating news made him reassess his own aspirations and what he truly wanted to do. Dhani realized that he wanted to pursue music as a way to bring something positive and strong to the world.

George Harrison’s untimely death in 2001 left a void in the music industry. However, his legacy lives on through his music. In November 2002, Dhani fulfilled his father’s last wish by completing his final album, “Brainwashed”, together with Jeff Lynne.

Dhani Harrison has always wanted to preserve his father’s legacy as a labor of love. He formed the band “Thenewno2” in 2001 and released their debut album “You Are Here” in 2008. Since then, Dhani has been involved in various music projects, including performing Beatles hits and his father’s music.

In 2012, Dhani married his longtime girlfriend Solveig Karadottir, and their wedding was held at Friar Park, outside the Harrison estate where Dhani grew up. The wedding was attended by both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, showing the close bond between the Harrison and McCartney families.

George Harrison’s music will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and thanks to his son Dhani, his beloved father’s musical legacy continues to thrive. Let us remember George Harrison with joy and love, and share this story with our friends and family to celebrate his lasting impact on the world.
