London, May 10 (IANS) Previously unseen lyrics penned by late George Harrison have been put on display at the Beatle’s London recording studios.
An official Beatles biographer, Hunter Davies, would collect scraps of paper the band threw on the floor of the Abbey Road studios during recording sessions in the 1960s. While researching a new edition of his Beatles biography, Davies discovered the previously unseen lyrics, penned in 1967 when Harrison was aged around 24, contactmusic.com reports.
“I can’t believe I have kept George’s lyrics for all these years but had forgotten about it until now,” said Davies.
The lyrics have been put on display in London’s Treasures of the British Library gallery, which also houses handwritten lyrics to famous Beatles hits including “Help!” and “Yesterday”.
