Can you tell which is Dhani and which is George? Answer at the end of this post…
I always knew that Dhani Harrison, George’s son, was awesome. After all, he looks like George, sounds like George, and plays in a fantastic band, thenewno2. He also co-produced George’s last, posthumously released album, Brainwashed, and was one of the driving forces behind Beatles Rock Band. However, I did not know that he was the one who came up with the idea of Rock Band in general! I found that out after watching this video:
So anyone who has ever enjoyed playing Rock Band, you have Dhani to thank!
Also, watching him sing just 10 seconds of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is quite a beautiful thing. And I really enjoy the music from his band, thenewno2. It’s not really Georgesque, although Dhani does sound a lot like George, but the music is great and stands up on its own. It’s different than the music I hear on the radio most of the time. This is one of my favorite songs by them:
Also, this more recent song is great. I think they performed it on Conan last summer.
In short, thank you Dhani for being awesome!
