While My Guitar Gently Weeps 10/31/94 RIP John Lennon

Today is the anniversary of John Lennon's death in 1980. In tribute here is Phish's cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps from the 10/31/94 Glens Falls show in which they covered the Beatles White Album. This was the first time they played WMGGW and it turned out to be the only song from the show that would remain in constant rotation in future live shows (note that Why Don't We Do It in the Road, I'm So Tired, Everybody's Got Something To Hide, & Cry Baby Cry were each played once or twice after this show). While My Guitar would frequently make a decent encore song '98-00.

They encored w/ this at my first show, 10-28-95, just a couple days before the Quadraphenia show.
