Even after two years when I drive past Paisley Park I still get misty and I'm an old man.
As Bomani Jones explained, "Prince is dead. It sounds implausible, even in a world where the only kinds of people are those who will die and those who already have. But if there were two types of people on the planet, Prince always seemed to belong to a third. And now he’s done the only ordinary thing any of us could ever imagine him doing".
What a perfect presentation of a great tune.
I too loved this song in its orgianl form and was extremely happy that Jeff Lynne repoduced Eric Clapton's perfectly mournful lead note for note. It could not have been bettered, and he did a FABULOUS job. Thank you Jeff! Then Prince came in and brought with him a tribute performance worthy of the man, George Harrison, who wrote it and also a tribute to what really great music is all about. That was very powerful and I listen to it over and over. The absolute best version of this tune ever done and it is a privledge that we all can watch and listen and learn. Thank you to all of the fine musicians who were there to make it happen.
As his Fingers Dance effortlessly Across his Weeping Guitar...the rest is History
Two things bout Showmanship one was George Harrison's talent secondly joined with Princes' that exemplifies how when the right talents come toghether the instruments can't hold all the Passion a artist trys to express thru i, leaves you wanting more and gently weeping
GEORGE HARRISON would have felt that!

One of the most beautiful songs, Played by an all starling up! And Prince makes you not want that song to end! It could have gone on 10 more minutes for me! If you buy this video, YOU won't regret it! It was filmed at a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum Induction Concert.And caught on tape.... And YOU can have your very own copy!
There are no words that could do this justice.Enjoy!

George Harrison tune that is beautiful and haunting, and will always be so. I had my 21 year old son, a talented guitarist and beat writer, sit down with me to watch this video the night Prince died. I wanted him to understand the depth of Prince's talent. I could see that my son was deeply impressed. This video will stand forever to mark the art and work of Prince. Love the entire sound and production, it is a joy to watch Dhani Harrison who looks so happy to have Prince step forward on stage.

...That Prince is not longer here. Pure Genius!
Weeping and Wailing
By Holy Hip Hopper
For every Strong Man who was taught Not to cry over your woman, your life and your dear momma, Prince does that for you. When you don't know how to express your tender side to your wife: here he is to do it for you!! And the Silver Kid , who has played for 52 years?! Sir, you need another 52 to learn how to Make Your Guitar Weep. At 4:14 min and THEN at 5:14 min ,Prince shows you how to do it RIGHT!! Your jealousy is atrocious! You know what , you are that audience staring like deer caught in headlights as Michael J. Fox shreds the guitar at the high school stage in his movie Back To The Future. " You're just not ready for it yet." Hope you're not racist. Some people don't like seeing a black man excel over them!
I've watched many times and it is an amazing performance.
