Song of the Day: George Harrison, “Any Road”

Session drummer extraordinaire Jim Keltner was born on this day in 1942. He’s played extensively with George Harrison, as well as John Lennon, Ringo Starr, The Traveling Wilburys, Joe Cocker, and others. "Any Road" is from George Harrison’s last album, Brainwashed, released posthumously in 2002. Besides George and Jim, the track features Jeff Lynne and George’s son Dhani.

  1. Hi John – George was certainly an amazing musician – such a pity he went so early in life. All the best – Hilary

  2. What a great song and I also love the video with his many images from all the decades. I love the banjo in this. He is my favourite Beatle who loved movies and his gardening.

    1. That banjo is actually a banjo ukulele (or banjolele, though that name is frowned on for some reason), which the comic actor George Formby, who came from Lancashire (not far from Liverpool), used to play. John and George were both influenced by him, and probably Paul and Ringo. George was the kind of guy who picked up instruments pretty quickly, and I guess the ukulele was one of those….

      1. I remember he appeared on a show not too long before his death and he played it on acoustic…the host sprung it on him…I don’t think he wanted to but he did.
