At the age of 14, Paul McCartney (whom he had met at school) introduces him to John Lennon. Both Paul and John propose to him to be the guitarist of a new group under the name of “The Quarrymen”, whose name later changed to “The Silver Beatles” and finally they ended up being simply “The Beatles.” With this group, they generated a series of records and fans around the world becoming one of the best-known rock bands in music history.

Paul McCartney was one of the few who knew George Harrison’s family background and history.

Harold Harrison, his father, was a bus driver and active member of the union of his class, and Louise, his mother, was a housewife. Her family had Irish origins as her maternal grandparents came from Wexford. During his childhood, he lived in a house located at 12 Arnold Grove, in the neighborhood of Wavertree, Liverpool.
