25th February 2015

On this day we are remembering George.  

Here is a special announcement from http://georgeharrison.com

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGE! On this day 25 February 1943 George Harrison was born in Liverpool, England. Actually, George himself once said that his actual birthday was the 24th February!

So to celebrate both days, here's a never before seen clip of George singing 'Congratulations'.  It was filmed during the shoot for the 'All Things Must Pass' 30th Anniversary Edition in 2000 at Friar Park. It's a Traveling Wilburys tune, sung by Bob Dylan on their first album: 'Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1.'

Watch George sing 'Congratulations'
