Harrison (centre) and his wife Patti Boyd were arrested on 13 May 1969 for posesing illegal substances following a police search of their property. The police raid took place on the same day that fellow Beatle Paul McCartney (1942-) married American photographer Linda Eastman (1941-1991). George Harrison (1943-2001) formed the Beatles in 1960 with Paul McCartney, John Lennon (1940-1980) and Ringo Starr (1940-) in Liverpool, England. They went on to become the most succesful pop group of all time and finally split in 1970. In 1965 Harrison, along with the other Beatles, was awarded the MBE. Harrison died in November 2001 from throat cancer.
