george harrison’s boyhood home

from the beatles, george harrison posted in music by elvis_crabs

George Harrison's family moved to this location in 1950.

While initially a good student, he had an epiphany while riding his bike around. He heard the Elvis tune "Heartbreak Hotel" coming out of a window and was hooked. He directed his energy into music instead of schoolwork after that.

Harrison and McCartney became friends in 1954. After Harrison showed Lennon how he could play the song "Raunchy" in 1958, he became a member of John Lennon's early band, The Quarrymen.
