Here’s a fun fact to throw out at the next party you’re at: Dhani Harrsion, son of George Harrison (member of the Beatles) was a coxswain at Brown University in the late 90s. He was also a member of Leander Club and coxed Steve Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent. Cool, right?
A few months ago I found George Harrison’s song “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” that was covered at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductions in 2004 by Dhani Harrison, Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, and several other artists. It’s pretty amazing (Prince’s guitar solo at the end is incredible) but I thought it’d be a good song to listen to while stretching out, cooling down, or during some light steady state. The fact that one of the guys performing just happens to have a coxing background is a neat little bonus.
