    I'm a George Harrison fan and pretty much always have been.

    It would be interesting to see a poll on this thread. I honestly don't think it's up for debate that Lennon and McCartney were both genius songwriters. I think George Harrison was a great songwriter who was clearly influenced by the stuff the other two were writing.

    I suppose this thread is about your favourite one though. George (or possibly Ringo) is the most likeable of the four.

    The following reasons (thanks for asking )

    -Great songs like 'Here Comes the Sun' and of course 'Ive Got my Mind set on you' is a classic
    -His love of eastern culture over western culture (dunno how he reconciled all the money, but still....)
    -His introverted character (had is own private space he liked to escape to)
    -He truly loved his friends Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Ringo Starr etc...
    -He saw the perils of the western world and spoke out against it
    -He wanted peace
    -He could play the sitar
    -Carried Ukes around with him....just in case someone else wanted to play one
    -He was physically cute
    -He had the depth of an ocean and more, I see it in those eyes
    -He found his soulmate in Olivia
    -He sent pun filled emails to his friends, mere days before he died

    I'm not a huge Beatles fan - my Dad was though. I wouldn't say I have a personal favourite - when I was a kid it was Ringo and I used to tell off my Dad because he bought everyone else's solo work except for Ringo's. xD I would find a debate over the best member of Yes more interesting.

    EDIT: Midgar Mist, here's one to add to your list:

    -He bought Ringo a drum set when Ringo was threatening to leave during the White Album sessions.

    So many George lovers, expected more of you to go for John (he is a close second for me too SammieBabe)

    And yes, thanks for reminding me of more good things George did.

    Here's another:

    He helped finance Life of Brian for Monty Python, after they developed a cash flow problem.
