oh, dhani boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling...

After George Harrison's death on 29 November 2001, his son, Dhani Harrison, in collaboration with Jeff Lynne, completed George's final album, Brainwashed, which was released in 2002. He participated in the Concert for George on the first anniversary of his father's death. The concert was organized by Eric Clapton and featured some of George's friends and collaborators, including Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Ringo Starr, and Paul McCartney. Dhani Harrison played backup acoustic guitar for most of the concert.

So uncanny is his resemblance to his dead father, that, during the show, a stunned McCartney turned to Dhani and told him, "You look more like George Harrison than George Harrison looked like George Harrison."

Then later, just before the finale, McCartney relayed to the audience, "Olivia [George's widow] said that with Dhani up on stage, it looks like George stayed young...and we all got old."
