Author: Marc Shapiro
The best-selling New York Times biographer serves up a stirring portrait of the Beatle’s late lead guitarist, shedding light on Harrison’s life, spirituality, and guitar technique.
New York Times bestselling author Marc Shapiro sheds new light on this paradoxical rocker, whose reputation for unusual religious practices and drug abuse often rivaled his musical notoriety.
A man whose desire was to be free rather than be famous, Harrison’s battle against conformity lead him to music making, a soulful and creative expression that would be his ticket to success and the bane of his existence. Behind Sad Eyes is the compelling account of a man who gave the Beatles their lyrical playing style and brought solace to a generation during turbulent times.
