George Harrison - George Harrisons Remembered 10 Years After Death

On the 10th anniversary of George Harrison 's death, he'll be remembered in style in his home city of Liverpool, UK with a slew of concerts and ceremonies being planned to mark his life. Harrison, known as "the quiet Beatle" in arguably Britain's finest pop combo, died on November 29th 2001 aged 58 due to lung cancer.
Bbc News reports that the late star's home city on the river Mersey has a host of tributes lined up for the former guitarist, with a concert having already taken place at 2pm Gmt this afternoon in the area's St. George's Hall and another scheduled to take place at 8pm Gmt in The Cavern Club, the venue memorably known as the location for The Beatles early gigs. Performers at the concerts will include two acts that Harrison signed to his group's Apple label - Brute Force and The Radha Krishna Temple. The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral will be holding a special ceremony in homage, and both Liverpool City Hall and St. George's Hall will be flying their flags at half-mast.
As one quarter of one of the most successful acts to ever grace the earth, Harrison enjoyed a career that - between 1962 and 1970 - saw 10 Number One UK albums and 17 Number One UK singles as well as substantial success in the United States. He also went on to have a glittering solo career in his own right, including two UK Number One albums in 1970's 'All Things Must Pass' and 1973's 'Living In The Material World.'
