Peter Frampton: Under the Influence

By: David Paul Morris/Getty Images News

I love to find great covers of awesome rock songs and with Peter’s fine interpretation, I think you’ll agree this is one of them.

It’s cool how he intros the song with something entirely unexpected.

George Harrison said in the book, “I, Me, Mine” that:

“I wrote “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” at my mother’s house in Warrington.

I was thinking about the Chinese I Ching, the Book of Changes… The Eastern concept is that whatever happens is all meant to be, and that there’s no such thing as coincidence – every little item that’s going down has a purpose.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” was a simple study based on that theory. I decided to write a song based on the first thing I saw upon opening any book – as it would be a relative to that moment, at that time.

I picked up a book at random, opened it, saw ‘gently weeps’, then laid the book down again and started the song.”
