Watch Dhani Harrison Cover Two of His Dad’s Songs for ‘Conan”s George Harrison Week
George Harrison Week on the 'Conan' show continued last night, as Harrison's son Dhani stopped by to deliver performances of two of his dad's songs and share his pride for the new box set 'The Apple Years 1968-75.'
Harrison performed the 'All Things Must Pass' track 'Let It Down' for the episode's broadcast, which you can watch above, and also added a bonus song -- 'Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll),' also from 'All Things Must Pass' -- as a web-only special feature, which you can watch below.
He then spent a few minutes at the desk with host Conan O'Brien, sharing a few of his thoughts regarding the 'Apple Years' box, which he was partially responsible for curating and overseeing. Calling preserving the George Harrison legacy "a labor of love," he mused, "It's been 13 years since my dad died, and this has all been in my head with Dad, thinking about it for so long, that it's great seeing it sitting on your desk."
Harrison's performance follows appearances by Beck, who covered 'Wah-Wah,' and Paul Simon, who offered his rendition of 'Here Comes the Sun.' Norah Jones is scheduled to complete the celebration on tonight's episode.
