Watch Prince wail on ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’

Prince changed the game. He controlled the stage, he controlled the music and he controlled the media. "The Artist" rewrote the rules, taking the traditions of funk, soul, hard rock and dance to forge his own sound. He was a driven leader who made us bend to his will, created a new path and inspired others to step up, just to keep up. Prince changed the game. He controlled the stage, he controlled the music and he controlled the media. — Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

HARI SREENIVASAN: Finally tonight, we want to leave you once more with Prince at his best. During his 2004 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Prince played a guitar solo during a rendition of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," alongside Tom Petty and Steve Winwood, part of a tribute to the Beatles' George Harrison.

On his passing, the museum said of Prince — quote — "He rewrote the rules, taking the traditions of funk, soul, hard rock and dance to forge his own sound."
