Late 'Beatle' George Harrison's widow, Olivia, has revealed that he suffered from stress during the band's heyday in the sixties.

Olivia, who married Harrison in 1978, says the late star travelled the globe with his second wife in search of solitude.

"He was shell-shocked from the whole Beatle experience. Literally shell-shocked. He hated loud noises. And imagine it all day, every day, for five or six years, people were screaming at you when you opened your door, jumping on the hood of your car, looking in your window. And then, there were the death threats. He wanted to be far away. And he wanted sunshine," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. "George was always on a quest to get as far away as he could... I had the feeling that he travelled the planet simply to look for solitude," she added.

Harrison died of cancer in a Hollywood Hills mansion in November 2001.
