Signed by Olivia Harrison on the limitation page. This beautifully presented book was created alongside the Concert For George at The Royal Albert Hall on November 29th 2002, which brought together some of the world's finest performers for an unprecedented night of celebration. Rock stars, comedians and classical musicians took the stage at the stagel in perfect harmony, united by one thing: a love for their friend George Harrison whose earthly life came to an end exactly one year before. Through anecdotes, dedications, and hundreds of rare photographs, this book reveals story of George Harrison, from his early days right through to the tribute concert that celebrated his life, told by the people that love him.
