'Wu' My Guitar Gently Weeps
New York rappers WU TANG CLAN have been given permission to use a sample from BEATLES classic WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS on a new track.
The rap collective will record a cover of the song, which was originally written by the late George Harrison in 1968.
The former Beatle's son Dhani - an accomplished musician in his own right - will also perform on the track.
In an online message posted earlier this week (02Oct07) the band say: "Special thanks to Danny (sic) Harrison + Erykah Badu for helping bring this song to life!! Also thanks to The Harrison Estate + The Beatles for helping make this possible!!"
