Epic All-Star Tribute To George Harrison

Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, Prince and Dhani Harrison pay tribute to George Harrison with an epic cover of the former Beatle's classic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Petty and Lynne do a terrific job on the lead vocals, and Prince blows the audience away with a gut-wrenching guitar solo. I like that big smile of approval George's son, Dhani, gives Prince during the solo at 4:44-4:48. The performance took place at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2004 where Harrison was inducted posthumously for his impressive work as a solo artist. This was the second time the music legend had been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was first inducted in 1988 alongside the other members of the Beatles. He no doubt would have dug this incredible tribute.
