Hard on the heels of the hardtracking staff’s post about the classic guitar duet between George Harrison and Eric Clapton comes this performance of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” – featuring Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne, and Dhani Harrison (the very spit and image of his old man) – at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions.

Damn. If Prince isn’t the son Jimi Hendrix never had, he’ll do until someone better comes along.
All great–but I want to add that Steve Winwood is an underappreciated genius and talent–been that way for as long as I can remember, which is longer than I care to remember!
Absolutely right, Bill – I wore out the grooves on John Barleycorn.
*Name dropping* Was fortunate to have dinner with Woodward once; lots of great anecdotes. Will Share Some Time.
