* WeUsedToBeFriends: George and Paul were the first Beatles to meet each other and went on to become boyhood friends, with Paul even lobbying to John Lennon in order to recruit George as guitarist. But both men wound up probably being the most estranged pair of Beatles after the band's breakup. They did reconcile when George was terminally ill with cancer.

* [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Violently Protective Wife]]: The knife-wielding maniac who nearly killed George in 1999 was subdued when Olivia Harrison smashed a lamp over his head. Soon after the incident, George got a message from his good pal Music/TomPetty saying "Aren't you glad you married a Mexican girl?"

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Harrison's estate at some point after his death, mentioned the existence of enough of his unreleased recordings to fill entire albums, but to date none have surfaced, at least not commercially.

For instance, not only was Harrison great with the guitar, but he also introduced the band to new instruments like the sitar that gave the band whole new sounds to use. He endeavoured to write his own songs, but he found that his efforts weren't being taken seriously by John and Paul and he was relegated to one or two tracks on each album. However, he persisted and by the time of the band's final produced album, ''Music/AbbeyRoad'', he firmly proved that he was their equal with the classic songs, "Something" and "Here Comes The Sun."

Still, he finally got to fully stretch his wings post-breakup with his solo album, ''Music/AllThingsMustPass'', the biggest selling ex-Beatle solo album to date. In addition to his artistic rise, he also used music to do direct social good, most famous for creating the first rock benefit concert, ''The Concert for UsefulNotes/{{Bangladesh}}'', in 1971 to help that country--which besides being poverty-stricken was not only still fighting for its independence from Pakistan but also had to deal with the effects of a massive cyclone. He also was a member of the late-1980s supergroup Music/TheTravelingWilburys.

In addition, he became a film producer by founding Creator/{{HandMade Films}} to produce ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' when it suddenly lost its backer. The company continued on after he left it in the late 1980s.
