I take issue with that douche bag remark. Usually, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony ends with a jam featuring the most important inductees' music. Normally, that year's celebration would have featured Prince's music, but because George Harrison had recently died, they centered the jam around him. Prince took over halfway through, and in the course of playing the Clapton role in While My Guitar Gently Weeps, showed every one on stage and in the crowd who the real genius was. Even Harrison's son Dhani was impressed; check out the look on his face.
Prince may have been acting cocky, but that night should have been centered around him, not Harrison, who's a bit of a musical footnote by comparison.
Meh. I love Prince, but the solo wasn't even that impressive. And his lack of interaction with the band is completely off-putting.
Hardly a "who's Clapton" example. In fact, it does the opposite. Who the fuck is Prince?
