Important People in I Me Mine

There are several people in I Me Mine that are important, but there are a few that stand out more than others. These important people are George Harrison, the other three Beatles, Pattie Boyd, and Ravi Shankar. George Harrison is the most important character because this book is his autobiography. He was a guitar player and songwriter in the Beatles, and then became a solo music artists. Harrison was a tall, quiet individual, but was a powerful person. It was never about him and always about others. His music made many people happy and his influence told others to be peaceful and to give charity.

The other three Beatles, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and Paul McCartney, were also very important in I Me Mine. They were all around the same age, had mop top hair cuts at one point, and they all became very good friends. The other three Beatles influenced George Harrison greatly. They helped each other become famous and despite the Beatles breaking up, they are still a very well known band today. Although they had fights in the end, they were still friends and are all still known as the Beatles.

Pattie Boyd is another important person. She was George Harrison's first wife. They met on the set of A Hard Days Night, the fake Beatles documentary. She was normal height and blond, and was always in style when it came to fashion. Pattie Boyd was a great influence on George Harrison's life because she helped him find Hinduism, and Eastern Indian culture. Although she was a big influence,she left him for Eric Clapton, a musician and one of George Harrison's good friends.

 Ravi Shankar is from India and is a well known sitar player.Ravi Shankar, in my opinion, is one of the biggest influences on George's life. This is because he became a mentor for George Harrison. Ravi Shankar helped him play the sitar and helped him with practicing the Hindu faith. He also helped Harrison become very spiritual in his mind and in his music. Both George Harrison and Ravi Shankar became very good friends, and even played concerts together.
