Beatle lead guitarist, George Harrison died Thursday in Los Angeles after losing a battle with cancer. Harrison had been successfully treated for throat cancer in 1998 and survived being stabbed multiple times by a deranged intruder in 1999. Harrison and long time engineer, Sir George Martin denied rumors of Harrison having cancer as recently as July 2001.

Harrison’s career is one of superstardom. While his persona is that of one who’s guitar gently weeps, his chords like the 12 string chime that starts "A Hard Day’s Night" are easily identifiable by generations of listeners. In the late 1960’s Harrison was very much at the forefront of the Peace and Love movement and is well known for his involvement in Eastern religions.

After the breakup of The Beatles, Harrison organized The Concert For Bangladesh, was involved with producing Monty Python’s Life of Brian and played in the all-star band The Traveling Wilburys.

Today is truly a sad day for rock and roll.
