LONDON (AP) — Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison's widow and son have publicly remembered the late Beatle on what would have been his 75th birthday on Sunday.

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

Harrison died of cancer in 2001 at the age of 58.

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.

McCartney, 75, and Ringo Starr, 77, are the only surviving members of the English band that rocketed to global fame in the 1960s.

John Lennon was shot to death in New York City in 1980 at the age of 40.
