An incredible version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Sometimes when you don't look, you find.

I was watching YouTube last week and found this performance of the George Harrison classic by pure accident. From the 2003 Concert for George, the list of performers is like a who's who of multiple musical halls of fame. Both living Beetles (Paul McCartney on piano, Ringo Starr on drums), George Harrison's son Dhani and ELO founder Jeff Lynne on guitar, and on lead vocals and guitar, the only three time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Slow Hand himself, Eric Clapton.

Towards the end (5:45), I love the look on Clapton's face, after he's been on a two minute tear on his guitar, "TOP THIS MOTHER F&*(ER!"

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
