George Harrison, the least flamboyant of the four Beatles, died Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles after a lengthy battle against cancer.

Harrison, 58, wrote several Beatles smash hits including "Here Comes The Sun," "Something" and "Norwegian Wood."

Harrison went on to post the No. 1 hit "My Sweet Lord" after the Beatles broke up in 1970. The native of Liverpool, England was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Harrison also co-founded the Traveling Wilbury's supergroup, which included rock superstars Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
