New Video Gives Closer Look At Prince’s ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ Solo


A new directors’ cut of Prince‘s rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” has been released on YouTube.

At the 2004 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, while honoring George Harrison, Prince teamed up with fellow legends Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood and George’s son, Dhani, for one of the iconic live performances of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

Joel Gallen, who directed and produced the original Hall of Fame broadcast, has now uploaded a newly edited version of the performance, which gives a better view of the solo performance by Prince.

“17 years after this stunning performance by Prince, I finally had the chance to go in and re-edit it slightly – since there were several shots that were bothering me,” Gallen explains in the video’s caption. “I got rid of all the dissolves and made them all cuts, and added lots more close-ups of Prince during his solo. I think it’s better now.”
