His Royal Badness

at | 4 Replies

A new director’s cut by producer Joel Gallen of Price’s mind-melting guitar solo at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony for George Harrison.

In the unlikely event you’ve never seen it – Prince commences to rip about 3 and a half minutes into ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, performed with Harrison’s son Dhani, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Steve Winwood.

If you have seen it, watch it again for added Princeliness.

Anil Dash shared some extra details about the performance here (including what actually happened to the guitar Prince throws into the air at the end of the set) and a photo (top) of Prince heading unnoticed through the streets of New York for the rehearsal.

    The face on Harrison’s sons face right before Prince kicks off, and as he’s shredding it.
