Behind The Locked Door is Graeme Thomson's rich, insightful account of George Harrison's extraordinary life and career. This Omnibus Enhanced digital edition includes Spotify sections, detailing Harrison's early influences, his contributions within The Beatles and the best of his solo career. Additionally, an interactive Digital Timeline leads you through a collage of music, videos and images, displaying live performances, interviews, memorabilia and more. As a Beatle, Harrison underwent a bewilderingly compressed early adulthood, buffeted by unprecedented levels of fame and success, from schoolboy to global superstar. "Beatlemania" offered remarkable experiences and opportunities, and yet dissatisfaction still gnawed within. His life became a quest for meaning and truth which travelled far beyond the parameters of his former band and his former self. This elegant, in-depth biography tracks these changes and conflicts, marking the struggle of walking a spiritual path lined with temptation. Drawing on scores of interviews with close friends and collaborators, rigorous research and critical insight, Behind The Locked Door is a fascinating account of an often misunderstood man. As well as an intimate character study, it offers a full analysis of Harrison's music, from his earliest songs for the Beatles to his landmark solo album All Things Must Pass, his work with The Traveling Wilburys and the posthumous Brainwashed. Behind The Locked Door provides the definitive account of a compelling, contradictory and enlightening life.

A must for all Beatles collections and for fans of the quiet man himself." "Booklist" (Starred Review) "Boring is one characteristic George Harrison can certainly never be accused of. Neither can it be said of Thomson's magisterial biography." "Chicago Tribune" "Do we need another book on the Beatles? In this case, definitely."
