From an article on the BBC interviewing Giles Martin about the White Album 50 years anniversary digital remixing:Eric Clapton - Layla (Live)
Do you think that's why George Harrison felt sidelined? It seems crazy that Not Guilty got vetoed in favour of something like Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.
I think he brought in Eric Clapton for While My Guitar Gently Weeps because it was a really great song; and he knew that if he brought the best guitarist in the world to the session, they would have to listen.
