Prince’s Performance in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” Mateo Muro April 21, 2016 Music, Music News You’re going to see and read a lot of cool stories about Prince today. He was a legendary musician. I just want to show a video that I consider to be one of his most underrated performances in his long accomplished career. In 2004 he was asked to perform the guitar solo to “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” an intimidating request even if he wasn’t playing alongside some big names in music. He did not disappoint and this remains to be one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. I hope this sheds light into how great an all around musician he truly was.
