Throughout his time as a Beatle, Harrison was always known as the “Quiet One,” leaving the barbs and zingers to the likes of John Lennon. This parody of Harrison’s legal woes was a very biting satire of the ridiculousness of the suit and included some insightful lyrics such as, “This song ain’t black or white and as far as I know don’t infringe on anyone’s copyright…” and “This tune has nothing Bright about it…” an obvious shot at Bright Tunes publishing which brought the lawsuit. George and Monty Python member Eric Idle had been friends for many years. Harrison’s film company Handmade Films produced The Life of Brian and Time Bandits which starred Idle, as well as Python alumnus John Cleese.

Bruce Springsteen Peter Frampton Michael Jackson Elton John
