Readers may be familiar with the 'Concert for George'. It was held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, on November 29th, 2002, one year after the death of Beatle George Harrison, to honor his memory and his music. Harrison's wife Olivia organized the concert, which saw appearances from many top musicians such as Eric Clapton (a close friend of George Harrison's), Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, Ringo Starr, and more. Harrison's son Dhani appeared on stage as well, his first major musical exposure (he's since gone on to build his own career in music).
I came across some video clips from the concert yesterday, and bookmarked a few for background music while doing other things. This morning I found the clip below: Eric Clapton playing lead guitar, and Paul McCartney on keyboard, performing Harrison's composition 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'. Dhani Harrison plays acoustic guitar next to Clapton, and can be seen on several occasions. It's a wonderful piece of music, and Clapton's guitar solo is magnificent, so I thought I'd share it with you too. Turn up the volume, kick back, and enjoy!
Ah, the memories that brings back . . .
