Wed, 09 Apr 2008 11:37:20 +1000

The Who's Pete Townshend turned up at the funeral of his friend Neil Aspinall clutching a guitar. The guitar hero brought the instrument along to farewell Neil with a version of George Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord'.

Neil Aspinall was the head of the Beatles' empire for 40 years. He died a few weeks back of lung cancer at the age of 66.

Townshend also played Bob Dylan's 'Mr Tambourine Man' at the funeral.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr did not attend the funeral but Paul's daughter Stella was there. Ringo's wife Barbara represented the family.

John's wife Yoko Ono and George's wife Olivia both attended the service.

Paul had flown to New York to see Neil only days before his death.

The funeral took place the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Twickenham, in London.

Neil was buried at Teddington Cemetery near-by.
