There are tons of great reasons to listen to a cover of a song you love, even more reasons when the person covering the song is joined by a few of the original members of the band!
This version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is a preview from the upcoming (Feb 23rd) re-release of "Concert For George" , a 2002 tribute event in honor of George Harrison that is being reissued to mark the late guitarist's 75th birthday on February 25.
Directed by David Leland, "Concert For George" will be reissued as a Deluxe Edition Box Set, a 4-LP Box Set, plus new CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray combo packages.

It also seems fitting that this preview was released just days before Eric Clapton's new documentary "Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars" airs on showtime. (Airs on Feb 10th, Feb 11th on demand)
