Music legend Gary Wright reflects on his professional collaboration, friendship, and spiritual journey with "quiet Beatle" George Harrison, and releases for the first time a recording of a song they wrote together. Best known for his multiplatinum hits "Dream Weaver" and "Love is Alive," Gary Wright came to prominence as a singer and songwriter during the golden age of rock in the 1970s. What is not as well known to the public, however, is Wright's spiritual side. At the heart of this memoir is the spiritual conversion and journey that Wright experienced alongside his close friend George Harrison. Until Harrison's death in 2001, the two spent decades together writing songs, eating Indian fare, talking philosophy, and gardening. In addition to featuring lyrics to a song cowritten by Wright and George Harrison in 1971, titled "To Discover Yourself," this memoir includes a cache of never-before-seen photos. Also available is a deluxe e-book featuring an audio recording of "To Discover Yourself."
