Harrison 'back in hospital'
George Harrison with his wife, Olivia
Former Beatle George Harrison is reported to be undergoing further treatment for cancer
at a New York hospital.
The Daily Telegraph reported that the musician, 58, was at the Staten Island University
Hospital under the supervision of Dr Gil Lederman, who is known for pioneering
treatment of very advanced cancer cases.
The newspaper quoted hospital sources as saying that Harrison was staying there under
the name of George Arrias - the maiden name of his wife Olivia.
One source was quoted as describing Harrison as "very frail and gaunt".
Dr Lederman offers a treatment called stereotactic radiosurgery, which attempts to
attack tumours with high doses of radiation but with minimal damage to surrounding
Harrison was treated for a brain tumour this year and had previously been treated for
lung cancer and throat cancer.
But recently there were signs that the musician was becoming more active again.
On 1 October he recorded with pianist Jools Holland at his Switzerland home.
Harrison wrote the track, entitled A Horse To Water, with his son Dhani.
It will appear on Jools Holland's album Small World, Big Friends, to be released in the UK
on 19 November.
Harrison, the youngest Beatle, was angered by reports in July this year that he was
preparing for death due to his illness.
He released a statement in July saying that reports he was close to death "were
unsubstantiated, untrue, insensitive and uncalled for".
