Remembering George Harrison and the Beatles with Louise Harrison

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Fifty years ago, four young men named Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Pete Best stepped into a studio for the first time to record a few songs. They called themselves the Beat Brothers, and they were more or less a backup band for a singer named Tony Sheridan. The Beat Brothers did not remain a backup band for long. Pete Best would be replaced by Ringo Star, and the Beat Brothers became the Beatles, one of the most enduring and popular bands in history.

Louise Harrison, older sister of the youngest Beatle, George Harrison — vividly remembers the early days in the Beatles' history. Those songs are now available on a double CD called "The Beatles With Tony Sheridan: First Recordings — 50th Anniversary Edition."
