More than a decade ago, a bevy of musical legends joined forces on stage to help honor George Harrison’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In what could be considered one of the most remarkable Rock Hall induction ceremony performances of all time, Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne, and George’s son Dhani Harrison took the stage in 2004 to perform an incredibly powerful rendition of The Beatles‘ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. Prince’s solo is just out of this world, concluding with him tossing his guitar into the air and strutting offstage.
Watch the unforgettable performance below:
