Eric Clapton recorded the guitar solo for the Beatles’ "While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, 
becoming the first non-Beatle to appear on one of their recordings. George Harrison 
later said that Clapton’s presence had another effect on the band: "It made them all
try a bit harder; they were all on their best behavior."

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was ranked no. 136 on Rolling Stone‘s list of "The
500
Greatest Songs of All Time
", no. 7 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs
of All Time
, and no. 10 on their list of The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs.

COVERED BY LIFE ON THIS DAY IN 1949

life9-5-49  
     Ben (Bernard) Turpin (September 19, 1869– July 1, 1940)

Turpin was a comedian and actor, best remembered for his work in silent
films
. His famous eyes, he said, only crossed as a young adult after he 
suffered an accident. Turpin was convinced that the crossed eyes were
essential to his comic career; his co-workers recalled that after he received
any blow to the head he made a point of looking at himself in the mirror to
assure himself that they had not become uncrossed.
