The official cause of death for legendary singer/songwriter George Harrison is lung cancer. The musician died on May 28, 2004 at the age of 58.
He was diagnosed with throat and neck cancer in 1997.
On May 20, 2007, he underwent surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to remove a cancerous growth from one of his lungs.
The procedure was a success, but Harrison died a few days later.
The cause of death for the late British musician is still being investigated, but his family has shared the information with the public.
The death certificate for Harrison is available through the National Archives.
The obituary of the legendary singer/guitarist is written in a style that is reminiscent of his music and his personal style.
It is possible that Harrison’s smoking habit contributed to his deteriorating health.
The British musician was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997, and later was found to have non-small-cell lung cancer.
It was unknown whether his treatment was effective, but he was pronounced dead later that month.
While it is not known how the cancer afflicted Harrison, he was a heavy smoker and had a history of cancer.
In the 1990s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer and underwent radiotherapy to treat the condition.
It was said that the treatment was successful, but it wasn’t long before the music icon succumbed to non-small-cell lung cancer.
His death was not unexpected.
A tribute video of Harrison’s life was released on December 14, 2001.
