The rappers revise their statement and say it was a 'replay'
“We didn’t sample The Beatles, it was a replay, pardon,” they wrote on their MySpace page yesterday (October 3).
The band added: “The statement that we made yesterday was incorrect and we apologise for any confusion it may have caused. We DID NOT sample The Beatles… rather we did an INTERPOLATION of the classic George Harrison composition ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’.
“Dhani Harrison, son of George, through his friendship with the RZA, played guitar on the song and he himself helped secure the re-use licence.”
