It was not until the night of John Lennon’s death, Dec. 8, 1980, that I figured out my favorite Beatles song.
Back in the good old days of live DJs in radio stations at all hours of the day and night, rock and top 40 radio stations across the U.S. immediately started playing every Beatles song they had, including …
This is like no other Beatles song in that the lead guitar is played by none other than Eric Clapton, a friend (and future, uh, whatever you call two ex-husbands of the same wife) of writer George Harrison.
What better way to honor Harrison than this band?
Or maybe this band?
One thought on “While their guitars gently weep”
That is truly an exceptional song. Also love the acoustic version with strings on Anthology 3.
