Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr remember George Harrison on 20th anniversary of his death

Fond memories of George

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr shared touching tributes to George Harrison on the 20th anniversary of the late Beatles star's death.

Harrison lost his battle with cancer on Nov. 29, 2001, and the two surviving Beatles marked the sad date by paying their respects.

Paul tweeted: "Hard to believe that we lost George 20 years ago. I miss my friend so much."

"Peace and love to you, George. I miss you man..." Ringo added.

McCartney remembered the last time he hooked up with his late bandmate on the day George died, telling reporters, "He was still laughing and joking, very brave man. I'm just privileged to have known him and I love him like he's my brother. It's a very sad day for me and for a lot of other people, but I think he would have wanted us to get on and be loving and remember him as the great man he was."

The anniversary of Harrison's death comes days after Peter Jackson's acclaimed new Fab Four docu-series, The Beatles: Get Back, premiered on Disney+. The project documents the group as it prepares for what would be its final show.

The footage was shot during the making of the group's final album, Let It Be.
