WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS
Prince’s Legendary Solo On “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
The body of Prince Rogers Nelson died today and the universe lost a master whose music transcended the Earthly bounds of genre and gender.
The man put it best when he described himself by saying: “My name is Prince and I am funky.”
Anyone who tries to quantify his musical achievements or explain his abilities in a single tribute would be a fool for the attempt. But one way to understand the power of a true genius is seeing how brightly they shine when in the presence of other legends.
In the clip below, Prince goes supernova.
Back in 2004, The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame paid tribute to Beatle George Harrison with a performance of his classic, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”
Recorded in 1968 for the Beatles’ “White Album,” the track was a rarity for the Fab Four because it featured a guest artist, Harrison’s friend Eric Clapton, on lead guitar.
For the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame’s tribute performance, it assembled a super-group featuring Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne from Electric Light Orchestra, Harrison’s son Dhani and on lead guitar, playing Clapton’s role, was Prince.
