Today marks 16 years since The Beatles guitarist George Harrison sadly passed away at the age of 58. His untimely passing brought an end to a career that saw enormous success as a solo performer and with other projects such as The Traveling Wilburys supergroup. George’s website once again shared a video in tribute to the beloved musician. Watch the brief clip here:
Just over 46 years ago on November 23, 1971, Harrison was a guest on The Dick Cavett Show. He joined the backing band Wonderwheel on guitar while supporting Gary Wright during a performance of “Two-Faced Man.” The song appeared on Wright’s 1971 LP Footprint which Harrison helped record. Wright previously appeared on George’s 1970 double album All Things Must Pass.
Below is the performance of “Two-Faced Man” and the first segment of Cavett’s interview with Harrison. The complete interview, which includes an appearance by Ravi Shankar, follows below as well:
