I hope they didn't use all the blue light in the world making that 1st vid as I'd like a bit of sky when I go outside tomorrow.

Plus, it's not really very flattering to The Short One's skin.

I'd think he'd have noticed that in rehearsals...

Still, he does his usual grand job of string wrangling.

I most liked the "guitar as cat" moment just before 5:00 mark.


The second: I loved the Fred MacDowell-like [*] "Let-the-guitar-say-it" moment at the beginning of 2nd verse & was really looking forward to him doing that classic dance (as integral to the sing as the stuff in "Kiss") but, no ?

I guess the knees might be ageing...

Then suddenly the site, though I'd been battling the pop-ups throughout, broke through & started advising me about some skin cream...

Had to bail. I hope he & the band made it out alive.




[*] Yes, I know it's spelled "McDowell" but he always pronounced it "MacDowell".

Terrible stuff! Prince is a killer guitarist and I have always respected his work. But that video is awful, and the tap from the piano players monitor mix (or whatever it is...) is just bad bad bad. And yeah, the popups... what a drag.
