Sting Speaks about George Harrison
check out trailer below for Martin Scorsese-directed documentary on Beatle, George Harrison, which will debut Wednesday night on HBO.
GeorgeÂ Harrison: Living in the Material WorldÂ describes Harrisonâ€™s life and plenty of fans will be tuning in â€“ probably some famous ones too.Â Â StingÂ said he has always had respect for Harrison.
â€œI was a fan ofÂ The BeatlesÂ from day one and George Harrisonâ€™s contribution to that band was immense.Â Â I think I learned a lot of guitar by just aping the riffs that he came up with and as a solo artist, he was immensely successful.Â Â He was the first Beatle to have a number one single after the break-up of the band.Â Â So he was hugely important.Â Â I think heâ€™s hugely missed.â€
Other folks interviewed for the big doc include: Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Yoko Ono and Eric Idle. Part One airs Wednesday night on HBO at 9pm while Part Two will air Thursday.
