Tom Noll has completed another beautiful work of art with his captivating caricature of George Harrison that he aptly named: “Within You“. Click on the image below to be directed to Tom’s site for ordering information or eMail Tom now at Tom@TomNoll.comto order right away.
This video (audio) was uploaded to YouTube a while ago, but somehow it escaped me… until now.
It’s the isolated track of Eric Clapton’s guitar from George Harrison’s classic (and my favorite guitar song of all time) “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” off the The Beatles White Album.
George Harrison wrote the song but he asked Eric to play the solo on the studio version.
As a result, this is one of the few times you will hear a “non-Beatle” on a “Beatles” recording.
Are you an Eric Clapton fan?
Without a doubt, Eric Clapton is one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time.
Eric Clapton is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
Tom’s “Art That Rocks” print collection includes Limited Edition prints from original oil paintings of many famous Blues and Rock guitarists and bands – all available for immediate purchase and shipment!
Limited Edition prints are still available of this amazing Eric Clapton artwork! Contact Tom Noll directly to inquire about ALL art prints for sale.
Note: GuitarDaddy owns several of Tom’s prints and recommends them highly!
December 8, 1980.
John Lennon was going into the studio later that day with Yoko Ono to work on her upcoming release “Walking on thin Ice”. It would be the last time he would ever enter the studio.
A man who lived in Hawaii had traveled to New York City with a mission on his mind. He was not going to give up until this mission was accomplished.
He would kill John Lennon.
At approximately 10:50pm, Mark David Chapman shot Lennon four times near the entrance of the Dakota apartment building. Earlier that evening, Lennon had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for Chapman.
Lennon was taken to the emergency room of nearby Roosevelt Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Chapman pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years to life. He remains in prison, having been repeatedly denied parole.
Lennon’s body was cremated and his ashes were kept by Yoko Ono.

TODAY IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY FOR BEATLES FANS!
- Digitally remastered versions of The Beatles recordings are being released TODAY.
- TODAY is the first post on TheGuitarBUZZ to feature Tommy Emmanuel.
I have long been aware of the acoustic genius of Tommy Emmanuel. The man plays a guitar as effortlessly as I breathe air.
It seemed fitting to post something to the blog TODAY about the Fab Four and while millions of guitarists have covered Beatles tunes, nothing strikes a chord with me as powerful as Tommy Emmanuel’s Beatles Medley.
Watch Tommy Emmanuel blister through a few Beatles hits:
(Day Tripper, When I’m Sixty-Four, Lady Madonna)
