Eric Clapton said that it might have taken Harrison's death to show people just how great he really was: "The best thing that came out of his passing was that we all got to remember exactly what he'd contributed, y'know, as much as any of the other guys -- and maybe more so, because it was an individual achievement. Y'know, Lennon and McCartney's one thing and Paul's one thing and John's -- I think George, in my opinion, I found his work the most accessible and strongest for me to tune into."
The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 23rd on ABC-TV.
