LONDON — Paul McCartney paid tribute to his former bandmate, George Harrison, on Sunday, which would have been Harrison's 75th birthday. Harrison died of cancer in 2001 at the age of 58. Harrison's family also remembered the guitarist on social media.

"Happy Birthday Georgie. Wonderful memories," McCartney tweeted Sunday along with a black and white photograph of the two of them taken during the Beatlemania days.

His widow, Olivia Harrison, and his son, Dhani Harrison, tweeted an invitation for fans to celebrate George's birthday by watching a video of Billy Preston and Eric Clapton performing the Harrison song "Isn't It a Pity" at the star-studded Concert for George in 2002.

Harrison was the youngest Beatle, and credited with introducing the other Beatles to Eastern mysticism and bringing the sitar into rock and roll.

McCartney and Ringo Starr are the only surviving members of the English band that rocketed to global fame in the 1960s. John Lennon was shot to death in 1980.
