GEORGE HARRISON The Reluctant Beatle

by | Read by David Holt

Biography & Memoir • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

David Holt raises the level of this unadorned but deeply researched biography of George Harrison--the reluctant, shy, sometimes overlooked Beatle. The dichotomies and contradictions of his complicated life abound, a life sadly cut short by cancer. His excessive cocaine use is discussed as continuously as his life journey with deep meditation. Holt has a relaxed, comfortable style and a just-British- enough accent to inform and entertain. Harrison's excellent musicianship on lead guitar and sitar is at the heart of the narrative. Neither his personal strengths and weaknesses are sensationalized. While not covering any new ground, this is a workmanlike biography-- well narrated despite its unvaried tone.
