The Last Prince Concert and tribute thread
« on: April 21, 2016, 04:02:51 PM »
This is his last live performance at the FOX Theater in Atlanta  4/14/16

Its poor quality audio, probably from a phone. This is such a sad day, add your favorite prince material to the thread.

That guitar solo is amazing.  I love the look on Dhani Harrison's face while Prince plays.  He is in awe.

One of the first records I bought was Controversy (along with The Violent Femmes s/t).  I got to see him 5 times live, IIRC.  I never enjoyed his live singing, but he ALWAYS put on a great show.  He was one of the last singer/songwriters.  His work was almost always recognizable, even when sung by others.  It was so distinctive.  His genius shone through.

Unfortunately, he is super stingy with his stuff on-line, so there is not much to post here unfortunately.  But as soon as I get to my car, I am blasting America.  His guitar work there is so awesome.  Then When You Were Mine, All of Controversy,  17 days, ......  Man so much greatness.

wholly shit, this guy is preaching to me but im not sayin anything because its Prince!

One of Keven Smiths greatest anecdotes about working with his Purple Majesty.  The video discusses his "oddness" but still somehow shows respect.



He was certainly not a skeptic but I dont care, he never really did any damage with his odd religious or non scientific views even though he did have enough media power to do so. People worshiped him, not what he thought he stood for.

I never knew the backstory to his Super Bowl halftime show.  Best Half-time show ever.



I bet Dave Grohl shit himself.

Evidently MTV stopped all programming today and played nothing but prince videos.

He was a lot less sane than I thought he was. I do hope that the many songs he never released are allowed to see the light of day, however. Sanity and great art do not always intersect on the Venn of Life.

Nice print tributes from The New Yorker and Chevrolet.

Several of the roadside billboards (the electronic ones) have Prince tributes on them around here (granted, this is his state).  There is also apparently a plan to now turn his home into a Graceland-like tourist museum, which will no doubt bring some tourism around.  I may have to check that out.
