Happy Birthday George Harrison | Taxman With Eric Clapton

Today marks what would’ve been the late great George Harrison’s 72nd birthday. Harrison was the “Quiet Beatle” who was at the forefront of the group’s explorations of folk and world music. He’s responsible for some of the most beloved songs ever written including “Something,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “All Things Must Pass.”

The last tour Harrison embarked on was a trip to Japan with Eric Clapton in 1991. Clapton would guest with George and his band on a number of tunes each night. Let’s celebrate George Harrison’s birthday with a pro-shot video of “Taxman” featuring Eric Clapton from Tokyo in 1991:
