The music world is reeling from the news of Prince's death today at the age of 57. We are still waiting for the official word on the cause of the multi-instrumentalist's death.

We're planning stories to honor and remember Prince's life and art over the next days.

For now, we leave you with this live 2004 performance of the George Harrison–penned Beatles classic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," featuring a blistering extended solo from Prince. The song was performed for Harrison’s posthumous 2004 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and includes appearances by Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood and Harrison’s son Dhani.
