The Dark Horse

I did not know my generation was hung up on George Harrison but Salon is now telling us to chill the fuck out about him:
Harrison was the first Beatle to release a solo album – “Wonderwall Music” came out in 1968 – and he’d been restless for years. McCartney said that the guitarist’s songs, after lagging, had become “at least as good as ours.” In the ‘80s, Michael Palin of Monty Python described Harrison as “recovering from being a Beatle.” But with the exception of the posthumous “Brainwashed” album, Harrison got less interesting the further he got from the group that purportedly held him back. And he allowed a lot of his work to be hellishly glossed up by ELO’s Jeff Lynne.
More interesting to me is that he's the original Tea Partier.

And his weird non-reason for hating being in The Beatles.
