A newly expanded version of George Harrison‘s memoir, I Me Mine, was released last month, coinciding with the 74th anniversary of Harrison’s birth. It also coincided with the release of a vinyl box set featuring the former Beatle’s 12 solo albums, overseen by his widow, Olivia, who works tirelessly to catalog and share her late husband’s musical legacy.
“I have an overdeveloped sense of duty,” she told Rolling Stone.
For the re-issue of the book, Olivia located handwritten lyrics for Harrison’s last five albums, and lyrics for songs never recorded, including one titled “Hey Ringo,” about fellow Beatle and close friend Ringo Starr, which includes the line: “Hey Ringo, there’s one thing that I’ve not said/I’ll play my guitar with you till I drop dead.”
