Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton – Something (Live at the Concert for George in 2002)

The Concert For George was a star studded tribute to one of the most influential songwriters and guitarists in rock and roll history. George Harrison died on November 29, 2001, and The Concert For George was on that day a year later, in 2002.

“Something” is one of the brilliant songs they performed, with an all star band, led by Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton on that particular song. McCartney gives the song an emotional introduction, which leads into a ukele version of “Something”. It builds and crashes into a full on version of the song, with McCartney and Clapton sharing vocals. It’s very powerful.
