* RaisedCatholic: His later embrace of Hinduism was the result of his retaining an interest in spirituality but rejecting what he saw as the dogmatism of the religion of his youth. "Awaiting on You All" delivers a couple [[TakeThat Take Thats]] to the Church.

* CallBack: "This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying)" and "Here Comes The Moon" were obviously tips-of-the-hat to a couple beloved songs he did with The Beatles.
** A non-Beatles example: The Eric Idle-directed promo film for "Crackerbox Palace" has a brief cameo by the Pantomime Princess Margaret from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus.''

* DeadpanSnarker: Granted, this was more or less a requirement to be a Beatle. George was perhaps the most deadpan of them, however. He once said that being a Beatle had "certainly been no hindrance on his career".

* BerserkButton: He really, really, really, ''really'' seemed to hate [[Music/AbbeyRoad "Maxwell's Silver Hammer,"]] but wasn't the only one. John and Ringo hated it too, especially since Paul forced to do make them do so many takes.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: ''Brainwashed''.



* CreatorBreakdown: The record ''Dark Horse'', recorded not long after his wife Patti Boyd left him for his best friend Music/EricClapton.



* ExecutiveMeddling: His album ''Somewhere In England'' was delayed because the higher ups wanted another cover and some songs removed, so Harrison had to write new songs to fill the void. However, he made both a LampshadeHanging and a TakeThat against them in the song "''Blood from a Clone''".
** George was pressured by EMI to rush to finish ''Dark Horse'' in time for its scheduled release date and accompanying tour[[note]]which was disastrous enough to dissuade him from ever touring again, except on one tour with Music/EricClapton and his band that ended up being recorded and released on ''Live in Japan'', George's sole solo live album[[/note]], despite being stricken with laryngitis at the time (as well as throughout the tour), leading to its extremely scratchy, gritty vocals and the [[FanNickname nickname "Dark Hoarse"]] from the critics.



* ReclusiveArtist: George was never one for touring or performing concerts. There were two notable concerts, however, that he was involved in. One was ''The Concert for Bangladesh'', a charity [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin concert for the benefit of Bangladesh]] that he organised, and the other was a tour with Music/EricClapton and his band in 1992, out of which came the live album ''Live in Japan'' which ended up being George's last new album released during his life, with ''Brainwashed'' being posthumously released.



* WorldMusic: Harrison is well known for experimenting with traditional Indian music in his songs. All three Beatles songs with sitar music, "Norwegian Wood" (''Music/RubberSoul''), "Love You To" (''Music/{{Revolver}}''), "Within Without You" (''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'') were written by him. Music/RaviShankar taught him to play the instrument. Harrison's first solo album ''Music/WonderwallMusic'' is almost entirely full with Indian music.

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, ''Concert for Bangladesh'', to help that poverty stricken country recover from a devastating typhoon in the early 1970s. He also was a member of the late-1980s supergroup Music/TheTravelingWilburys.
