PRINCE IS GOD: The Official Thread

More worthy of the title than Clapton, that's for sure.


Which begs the question: Is Prince the greatest rock guitarist since Jimi Hendrix?

Exhibit A:

YouTube - Prince - awesome guitar solo 2


Exhibit B: (skip to 3:30 if you don't want to be put to sleep by the amateurs sharing the stage with him)

YouTube - Greatest Guitar Solo Ever


Exhibit C:

Prince - I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man (live) ( music video ) - [211ef31b6]

Prince appeared on George Lopez Tonight a few weeks ago. The audience got a real treat because they all got Prince t-shirts and he performed about a dozen songs in addition to interview bits with Lopez himself. He kept admiring the purple sequin shoes George Lopez was wearing. It was a really great show. I was amazed he'd do a talk show like that and I enjoyed watching it. I've been a Prince fan for a long time.

A dozen songs?? I'm assuming that most of this was just for the studio audience, and not aired?

Nice to see him being a sport about making fun of the whole name/symbol thing. Shame he didn't school that bear with his b-ball skillz, though.

I've never heard a Prince album.

But I have been served pancakes at his house.

This was my favorite episode of Muppets Tonight as a kid.

YouTube - Muppets Tonight - S2 E1 P2/3 - The Artist Formerly Known As Prince

@ 5:26 I always was confused though by this part, because I thought it was a weird version of Jack and Diane. I didn't realize it was a Prince song until a few years ago. I have no freaking clue what I was thinking in retrospect, but yeah... anyways. <3.

Laz, Martha and I all saw him last Friday (we did not attend together, wouldn't want anyone to think I spent a second of my life with Laz) and we all loved it.

You're in for a great time.
