Watch Prince melt faces with phenomenal guitar solo on Beatles classic

One of Prince’s most iconic moments is in the news again, after a newly re-edited cut of the scene has hit YouTube.

The moment occurred at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show, when Prince and a cast of all stars — including Tom Petty and Electric Light Orchestra’s Jeff Lynne — performed an amazing version of the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” as part of the induction celebration of George Harrison.

(Harrison, of course, had already been inducted into the Hall as a member of the Beatles, but this time around he was being enshrined as a solo artist.)

Even amid all of the other all stars, Prince ended up dominating the show as he delivered an incendiary take on the famed “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” guitar solo.

It’s made for a popular clip online for years. But now it’s even better, thanks to Rock Hall TV show producer Joel Gallen uploading a “new director’s cut” of the clip.

He uploaded it on April 23, just two days after the fifth anniversary of Prince’s death, which occurred on April 21, 2016.

He included this commentary with the clip: “17 years after this stunning performance by Prince, I finally had the chance to go in and re-edit it slightly — since there were several shots that were bothering me. I got rid of all the dissolves and made them all cuts, and added lots more close ups of Prince during his solo. I think it’s better now.”

It’s better than better. It’s awesome.
