Although his songwriting did not shine through until later records, Harrison contributed some of the Beatles most well-received tunes, including
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Something", which is also on the Abbey Road album.Abbey Road is named after the studio used to record the album. Abbey Road Studios is now a worldly monument that houses now famed acts, like Oasis and The Verve, to unveil their own new music while paying tribute to one of rock's best groups.
