George Harrison is undoubtedly the coolest Beatle and we won’t hear anything to the contrary. Yes, John had the glasses and Paul the twinkle in his eye, while Ringo was the most affable man on the planet, but there was something intriguing and aloof about George that made him the coolest. But he was also one of the most dryly funny. Growing up in Liverpool had blessed all the members with a caustic, coarse and cracking wit but Harrison only reserved it for the most enjoyable moments.
One such moment came from the below letter from 1968 when Harrison and The Beatles were at the peak of their powers and on top of the world. Literally. After a fan writes to Harrison asking for money to buy a sitar, Harrison responds with a drawing and a smirking retort. It’s the kind of action which showed off that, underneath it all, The Beatles were just four blokes who happened to know their way around a tune.
