Prince - "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" - Live 2004 (Amazing Guitar Solo)




In 2004, Prince joined the world’s greatest musicians and artists at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For the induction ceremony, he gave a concert alongside rock legends such as Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood and Dhani, son of the Beatles George Harrison.


Together they play one of the most famous songs from the Fab Four catalogue: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Prince, at the 3:30 mark, embarks on an orgasmic guitar solo. The performance was described by Rolling Stone as "the best musical moment of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame since ceremonies began.”




Lyrics


I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping

While my guitar gently weeps

I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping

Still my guitar gently weeps.


I don't know why nobody told you

How to unfold your love

I don't know how someone controlled you

They bought and sold you.


I look at the world and I notice it's turning

While my guitar gently weeps

With every mistake we must surely be learning

Still my guitar gently weeps.


I don't know how you were diverted

You were perverted too

I don't know how you were inverted

No one alerted you.


I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping

While my guitar gently weeps

Look at you all

Still my guitar gently weeps.




Songwriters: George Harrison
