Flashback: George Harrison Plays A Sublime ‘Something’ At Last Concert

George Harrison headed into the Nineties with incredible momentum. His 1987 LP Cloud Nine turned him into a very unlikely pop star thanks to the hit "I Got My Mind Set On You" and the Traveling Wilburys gave him more media exposure than he'd had since the immediate aftermath of the Beatles. The Wilburys never actually traveled, but in December of 1991 Harrison went on a co-headlining tour of Japan with Eric Clapton, his first outing since 1974. It was a mere 12 shows, but it seemed like the beginning of a tour that would finally take him all over the world. For reasons he never quite articulated, Harrison left a fortune on the table and didn't agree to any more dates after Japan. The only exception was an April 6th, 1992 show at London's Royal Albert Hall, which was a benefit concert for ...
