The two consecutive nights of Eric Clapton’s 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival were among the moments that a rock fan could never take for granted. Packed with prominent artists that shaped the kaleidoscope of music, each of the performances was deemed as unforgettable.
One of the highlights from the festival was Peter Frampton’s three-song set that ended with a bursting rendition of a Beatles’ classic. “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, which all we know, was a work of George Harrison for the White album, with Clapton providing its lead guitar. Frampton also made a cover version that he released back in 2003. Such surrounding information would help you to believe that they did perform the song in full justice.
Frampton sang its main vocals, which were superb, yet the best part was exchanging his and Clapton’s lead licks that led to the bursting of the guitar’s climactic display. It’s the first time for these two British rockstars to collaborate, but it felt like they were long-time partners already.
