The shock is palpable. There are a select few who come to this Earth and stay original...like they never stopped speaking the language of the motherland. If you ever get a chance to watch Prince play "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at a George Harrison tribute, it says it all. Looking at Dhani Harrison's face while Prince just shreds his father's song. He was the one who true musicians bowed to as the greatest.  Prince made it a point to mentor and play with women, not as a novelty, but because he knew the righteousness of our intuition. He was defined by no one. No one could understand him, much less master him. In his enigmatic presence, lay his power. This is a goddamn heartbreaking loss. https://youtu.be/4UkSIcm_y7Y

wow, those Tavis Smiley interviews are really good.  Would love to hear his and Cornell West's conversations that he references in this one:

What a loss.

This is While My Guitar Gently Weeps from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Prince stealing the show.  Unreal guitar solo.  Watch until the end when he exits the stage knowing that he just dominated.

JJ posted a nice tribute which you can see from his twitter or instagram.

Roll call tix for last summer's MMJ Atlanta shows went on sale at the exact same time as Prince's shows at the Louisville Palace. My friends were counting on me to score good seats in Atlanta. I had to break it to them.......Prince was my top priority. As much as I love MMJ, this was Prince we're talking about, the baddest mf'er on the planet.

Thankfully, I ended up with great seats for both. So glad I got to see him one last time. Still can't believe it. :cry:

RIP Prince
To the baddest MUTHAFUCKA to pick up a guitar or almost any instrument....
Saw him 6 times in 3 days in Chicago 3 shows and 3 after party club shows.
An Amazing, exhausting, musical 3 days I'll never forget!
NO ONE"Could Ever Take The Place of That Man!!!"
Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do, sometimes won't know how to take him

I'm crushed... My greatest musical regret will now always be that I never had the chance to see Prince live. 

RIP The Purple One

I went to see Howell Dawdy perform as the opening act for Kyle Gass Band (Half of Tenacious D). Howell Dawdy opened his set at Zanzabar with a tribute to Prince, who had died earlier that day. He performed the song, "Take Me With U" (This is only the last half of the song.)

Johnny Yac...I watched that just prior to your post, and was just floored. Talk about a goddamn champion. Who not only accepts a challenge, but throws down harder than anyone could imagine.

I saw this tribute to Prince by the cast of the Color Purple, including Jennifer Hudson, this morning. Jesus Christ it made me cry. Here is the link:

What Prince songs has MMJ covered besides I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man?

There's a video floating around from some James Brown show. He pulls Michael Jackson on stage, and then brings Prince on stage.  JB, MJ, and Prince back to back to back... Doesn't seem plausible, but it's out there.  Needless to say, Prince is the one your left thinking about when it's all over.

Bruce opened his show in Brooklyn last night with this very well done cover of Purple Rain.  :cool:
