George Harrison, guitarist of the Beatles, died November 29th, 2001. Many media outlets are reporting that today would have been his birthday. For years, various biographies have shown his birth date as February 25th, 1943…but could it be possible that everyone has it wrong?
Harrison's birth date is listed as February 24th in the artist archive at msn.com. The internet movie database shows his birth date as February 24th also, noting:
“A good deal of confusion as to his real birthday was solved when a family birth record showed Harrison as being born around 11:50pm on February 24th, 1943. He had believed his birthday was February 25th for his entire life."
However, a copy of Harrison's birth certificate on the website ‘celebrity birth certificates’ shows his birth date IS listed as February 25th.
Confused yet? Happy birthday anyway, George! We miss you!
