"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"...Last night I attended a TRIBUTE by local musicians at the downtown main library auditorium..
It honored the 10th anniversary of George Harrison's death.
George often was called "The Quiet Beatle" but his musical legacy continues and grows a decade later
Didn't get the names of the performers but a few I've seen playing around town.
Here the V-Tones showcased "Noodle McDoodle" on kazoo. Please note it's an ELECTRIC kazoo. Nice sound and appropriate to the song.
About 30 players were there and "Gently Weeps" was played three times that evening.
There was an impromptu duo who offered a tender treat.
They had met that night at the library and found they both planned on doing the same song.
They practiced together in the hallway and came out and played it together.
The finale for the hour and a half show was six musicians on stage as we all sang along on "My Sweet Lord."
During the show in the 200-seat auditorium, several library patrons had ducked their heads in.
Silence was not strictly observed that night.
(Click on the photo for more details.) There should be a link to 5 of George's greatest hits.
Hope they all are familiar to you.
I saw the "Fab Four" in concert in the 1960s in San Diego.
