Peter Frampton paid homage to the late George Harrison at a concert he organized and Cameron also donated signed items from Almost Famous for charity silent auction to raise money for the Sept. 11 relief fund. During an encore last Sunday night, the British guitarist played an emotional version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” as a tribute to Harrison, who died of cancer on Nov. 29 at age 58.

In Vanilla Sky, Cruise’s character David Aames describes lead guitarist George as his favorite Beatle. In the movie, Tom says, “I always liked George.” Crowe and Cruise considered scrapping the line, but decided against it. “We were both so sad. Tom and I kept saying, ‘Can you believe he’s dead?’ We decided it would be too late to change the line now and how it’s almost more meaningful now.”
