Dhani Harrison performs “For You Blue” from The Beatles final LP Let It Be. The song was written by his father and the B-side to “The Long and Winding Road.”

The younger Harrison, though overshadowed by the legacy of his father, is an accomplished musician himself; he found thenewno2 in 2006 and is a member of Fistful of Mercy alongside Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur.
