Nights At The Roundtable - George Harrison (Happy Birthday) - 1968

Nights At The Roundtable with George Harrison on what would have been his 68th birthday. "The Inner Light" -1968

<strong>George Harrison - a birthday today - it would have been Number 68.</strong>


In the event you were hiding for most of the day today, it would have been George Harrison's 68th birthday today. The Quiet Beatle or A Traveling Wilbury (if you're so inclined and don't remember back all that far). Back in the day, every one had a favorite Beatle. I will admit mine were John and George. Sadly, they're both gone now - but that doesn't stop me from still enjoying their music, their contribution to what were my formative years. Can't listen to a Beatles song without thinking of some event from a deep-distant past. I guess that's what lasting impressions are all about - the things that happen to you when the indelible imprint can be made. And usually what it was you were listening to when it all happened.

So in honor of George's birthday I'm running a track that was actually the B-side of a noteworthy Beatles single, Lady Madonna - only this one is The Inner Light.

If you're around tomorrow I will be posting a George Harrison concert from 1974 on Backstage Weekend. Just to keep the celebrations going.

In the meantime - Happy Birthday George.You're missed.
