Fossilized forever as a Beatle in the Sixties strata of the 20th century, George Harrison, the most underrated of the group, now recalls Beatlemania's more nightmarish overtones. Despite their hitherto unprecedented success, it was only after the Fab Four's dissolution that Harrison's creativity flourished. Harrison inner-sanctum entrant and Beatle chronicler Giuliano has written a revelatory biography of the elusive Harrison and his constellation of secular and spiritual interests, passions, pursuits, friends, and loves. The variegated musical phases of his career, through his current involvement with the Travelling Wilburys, are here examined with the benefit of numerous interviews. Harrison's own autobiographical I, Me, Mine ( LJ 1/1/82) is unsurpassed for the song-by-song explication, but Dark Horse should be its on-shelf companion. A necessary acquisition for most libraries.

This "lively, sympathetic biography" describes Harrison's years as the most mysterious of the Beatles, his immersion in Eastern mysticism, fascination with Hitler and recent success with a new band, the Traveling Wilburys. "Harrison's rise, fall and return to fame, his spiritual quest, drug experiences, marital infidelities and paranoia are aptly chronicled," said PW. Photos. Author tour.
