George Harrison’s sister to publish book

George Harrison

Louise Harrison, sister of late Beatle George, is to publish a book about her brother in order to “get the truth out” and debunk the “garbage [that] has been written about George and The Beatles”.

She told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune: “So much garbage has been written about George and The Beatles. I think it’s my duty to get the truth out. Half of the stuff has been written by people who spent maybe an hour on a plane with The Beatles. There’s been all kinds of myths and fantasies written about them. At least I have some facts to go on, because I was there – from even before they were The Beatles”.

With the book now mostly written, Louise Harrison apparently hopes to have the book published within the next two years.
