|The answer to which
songs Gary Brooker contributed on George Harrison's masterpiece All
Things Must Pass is nearly settled. In Bobby Whitlock's A
Rock'n'roll Autobiography Bobby tells in detail (nearly) who played
what on all the tracks. Here's the info concerning Gary Brooker's
WHAT IS LIFE
This was Derek and The Dominos with George playing the fuzzy lead part. Eric is playing his Stratocaster as the electric rhythm guitar and I’m (Bobby Whitlock) on Hammond and one of the Garys (Brooker or Wright) is on the piano and Bobby Keyes and Jim Horn on horns. I think this song has two bass players on it. It sounds like it.

Thanks, Per. Gary's own reminiscence is here: he refers to recording My Sweet Lord and Wah Wah.
