Your comments: George Harrison's son, Dhani, has his own fans
Yesterday's "Song of the Day" featured the Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with a scorching guitar solo by Prince, backed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jeff Lynne and Dhani Harrison.
Dhani is the son of the late George Harrison, who wrote that song for the Beatles; NJ.com user nyquil012 notices that the son is very much like the father:
Don't know if you've ever heard Dhani Harrison sing, but it's creepy. Not only does he look like his dad, but he sounds like him too. Check out his latest group, Fist Full of Mercy, if you don't believe me.

Fistful of Mercy, 'Father's Son' -- Song Premiere
This past February, singer-songwriters Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur met up with the son-of-a-Beatle, Dhani Harrison, in an L.A. studio for a three-day recording marathon. Perhaps Harrison was taking a cue he learned from childhood when his dad, George Harrison, joined some of his contemporaries -- Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne -- to form the Traveling Wilburys. Or, perhaps, Harper got the idea from his peers when he saw Jim James, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and M. Ward all band together as Monsters of Folk. Regardless, as with those two projects, the chemistry is just right and the band -- this one called Fistful of Mercy -- ends up being somehow even greater than the sum of its parts.
Fistful of Mercy's debut album, 'As I Call You Down,' will drop on Oct. 5 and -- with pre-orders already underway at the band's official web store -- the first 300 copies will come with an autographed poster. For those that just can't wait, a limited-edition vinyl version will hit stores a week earlier, on Sept. 28. And for those that can't wait that long, you can download the self-titled song 'Fistful of Mercy' at the band's website in exchange for signing up for their mailing list or tweeting about the album. But, for those who can't even wait till they finish reading this post to hear Fistful of Mercy, you can hear Spinner's exclusive premiere of the track 'Father's Son' after the jump.

Дхани вместе со своей группой выпускает новый альбом.
Dhani Harrison has got an awful lot going for him. He recently released an album with his supergroup, Fistful of Mercy, with bandmates Joseph Arthur and Ben Harper. He was instrumental in getting 2009's The Beatles: Rock Band developed and published, and performed the motion capture for his father, late Beatle George Harrison. After his father's death in 2001, he worked with Electric Light Orchestra mastermind and record producer Jeff Lynne to finish his father's final record, Brainwashed, and performed with the likes of Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and Eric Clapton at the memorial Concert for George.
With such a stunning resume, it's easy to expect a lot of EP002, the newest release by Harrison's band thenewno2. The four-song EP shows a lot of influence from Radiohead's Kid A, with claustrophobic synth and effected drums throughout. It's an homage that lends the record an excellent texture.
A touch of wobbly bass contrasts nicely with Oliver Hecks's expert oily synth in the EP's opener, "Wide Awake." The same professionalism is clear in "Live a Lie," which features Regina Spektor and starts with dry guitars before dropping suddenly into understated keyboards to great effect.
In fact the only people who seem out of their element on EP002 are the featured talent, specifically in "Mr. President" (feat. Sir Eyes, Crisis, & RZA). The trio lay down their rhymes with impressive flow (it is the RZA after all), but their politically minded lyrics say nothing of interest. It seems a little bit late to be writing about how bad a job Bush did, seeing as how he left office in 2008. The track's closing diss, a pledge of allegiance featuring the phrase "United Snakes of America," characterizes just how dopey the song's political statements are.
EP002 is a very solid step forward for thenewno2. It's by no means great, but it's still an improvement over their aimless 2008 release, You Are Here. Thenewno2 has a new album due out in 2012, and EP002 is reason to anticipate its release that much more.
