A new generation, the FILTER generation, celebrates the life of George Harrison in the fall issue of FILTER Magazine hitting newsstands September 2. George's wife Olivia and son Dhani have spoken to FILTER Magazine for this important cover story on George's music. Influential artist Shepard Fairey's "Friendship and Support" limited edition print of George graces the cover of the new issue.
FILTER Magazine has summoned a new generation of musicians to weigh in on the importance of George Harrison's music and to help illustrate why the publication considers him its favorite. Joining Olivia and Dhani in sharing their intimate thoughts on how George has inspired music today and into the future are Jim James, RZA, Regina Spektor, Jon Brion, Dean Ween, Shepard Fairey, Ben Bridwell, Nas, John Doe, Guy Garvey, Dean Wareham, Doug Martsch, Ben Harper and more.
"''Good music will prevail' is the motto we stand by, and for the launch of our fall issue, we want to inspire our readers with the FILTER generation's tribute to George Harrison," said Alan Miller, FILTER Magazine Co-Publisher. "George has helped influence the way we see the world, and it's up to us to get the word out on why our generation has been shaped by his music and legacy."
The launch of the fall issue of FILTER coincides with the completion of the Martin Scorsese documentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World. A few images from the film are also featured in the fall issue of FILTER. Olivia Harrison will be releasing never-before-seen photographs of George as well as George's own photographs in the film's companion book.
