i got to see Prince twice during the Musicology tour.  almost a decade later and i still haven't recovered: it's what turned me into a concert junkie.  i've been chasing that dragon ever since.  during that show he did an acoustic set which, IMHO, slayed.  watch a version here:

such an incredibly showman.

I have to say Gilmour may get my favorite guitar tone.. even better than Knopfler.. but both of them should put warning stickers on their newer albums "Warning: will put you into a coma!"

i was going to poop all over that jones/gilmour thing but thought i'd be outta place.  since i'm not alone in being unimpressed i'll pile on: i couldn't make it through the video either.  jones looks sooooo awkward.  like an uptight uncle forced to dance at a wedding.  the gilmour solo is forgettable.  sounds completely like a gilmour solo, because it sounds exactly like everything else he has ever done.  seemed phoned in to me.  i'm a huge fan of pink floyd and i love his style but it didn't fit this song.  i had high hopes for this one and gilmour let me down.

now see that is a good choice..a  deep cut..

all these purple rain covers.... the only person that can do it right is dead. I'd rather blow my head off than hear Bruce singing it... good lord.

I have it on good authority that Ween is bringing back, "Housequake."

I too disliked both Gilmour and the Springsteen cover.

But I did like this one, which was doubly impressive IRL:

Sirius/XM folks

I heard another channel advertise it, so I have mostly been rocking out to it for the last couple days in my car.

Kevin Smith on Prince.  30 minutes long but worth it if you have the time.
