About this deal

However, their son Dhani received the attention that his father felt had too long been lacking in his life.

They all got into Eastern religions, but that didn't deter George from his fondness for cocaine and women, including Ringo's wife, and the way he treated his wife Pattie was just sad. George in turns treats her beautifully and then appallingly, offering her to Eric Clapton one night casually. He also had to bear the financial burden of HandMade Films, the company he set up in 1978 with his American business manager, Denis O’Brien.Small wonder that while Pete Best gets the most attention for being dismissed as the band was on the cusp of stardom, the band had many members who quit out of not being able to take the grind. Part 1 of I ME MINE offers readers the story of George Harrison's life and music in his own words, and those of his friend and collaborator, Derek Taylor. A subversive streak saw him mortgage his country pile to provide last-minute finance to the imperilled production of Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

While working to raise funds to stop the genocide in Bangladesh, George was also doing other unpleasent things.Philip Norman captures [Harrison’s] class consciousness vividly [and] does a marvelous job evoking Harrison’s working-class Liverpool upbringing. We get a detailed look at his first marriage to model Patti Boyd, whom he met on the set of the Beatles first film "A Hard Day's Night" to the break-up of the marriage when she wound up with his friend Eric Clapton. While that interest is piqued by the other Beatles, it is something that George needs, a framework Catholicism never offered him. In his autobiography I Me Mine, the portion allotted to his bandmates and his profession paled next to his treatment of gardening at his beloved Friar Park estate. In his own words I ME MINE now covers the full span of Harrison's life and work with lyrics to 141 songs (more than 50 of which are new to this edition), an extended text commentary and new photographs.

This, my 10th and probably last rock biography, leaves me wondering as never before whether they’ve been any job for a grownup. Rock biography is a legitimate form of history and its luminaries must be related to contemporaneous events without sounding like a Rock ’n’ Roll Years audio tape I once heard on a BA flight: “It was 1961. The complexity of his character was something that hadn’t really been noticed before,” Norman said, adding, “Actually taking the whole elusive man, a bundle of different personalities, that was what was fascinating .

Now, acclaimed Beatles biographer Philip Norman examines Harrison through the lens of his numerous self-contradictions.
