I'd quite like it if he just dedicated a performance of Let Love Rule to Prince and not play one of Prince's songs - to be honest.

I hope so. Or maybe Dreamer, though I don't think he could nail Prince's guitar solo. We have yet to see a rock tribute to Prince. He needs one.

He should also do "Days Of Wild". Now's his chance.

Look at the other names!
Dhani Harrison!
ELO is being inducted so that means Jeff Lynne.
I think this will be a tie-in to P's amazing RRHOF guitar solo in 2004.
.
If Stevie Winwood and Tom Petty show up, it's a given.
Just roll the tape from 2004.

I love Lenny. He was quite popular when I was a teenager (late 90s, early - mid 2000s).

When You Were Mine would be a great choice although I wonder if he might have 2 sing in a lower octave or a different key in order 2 pull off that song. I would love 2 see Lenny do I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man.

Yes to this if he did the 3EG version. It's one of my favorite Prince songs and it doesn't get enough love in my opinion. I'd love it if he did When You Were Mine too but I wouldn't be surprised if he decides not to because it's the obvious choice.

Oh yes, yes that would be an excellent choice! It is certainly one that is rarely played. Would be nice to hear him play a song or two that hasn't already been done over and over. biggrin

I'm not familiar with the 3EG version of ICNTTPOYM. Was this a live performance? Nevermind, I found it on YT. I mainly like the 3EG performance for guitar solos, which are STELLAR! As for the pace and key of the song, I like the original better. The pace and key of the original + the guitar solos of the 3EG version would be amazing!

I guess I like it because it made me think of the song in a different way. So did the P&M performances. I'd love someone to do it any which way as I think it's a song of his that gets too overlooked.

Totally agree that I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man is overlooked. It's a great song, great storytelling and the title itself is cool.

I loved Lenny up to and including "Lenny" - I still like him and support him, but his albums are pretty predictable and formulaic.

I still think he'll do a great job honoring Prince though!

From the snippets I saw on Twitter it's hard to give an opinion because the sound wasn't great but I don't know if I liked WDC. I don't need to hear some guitarist in Lenny's band wailing on a solo, I wanna here Lenny play. But not that song. Still props to him for paying tribute.

I think this was a terrific tribute; the best I think I've seen so far. He wasn't trying to imitate Prince but he still maintained a clear reverence for the source material. And Lenny has a sexy/sensual and confident vibe in his performing style that feels in a similar spirit to Prince.

And every time I hear these tributes it makes me even more sad because none of them can compare to the real thing. 😢

Found video last night of 3EG's 2014 London concert at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Amazing show, just balls to the walls rock. Still missing a real rock and roll tribute to Prince. I guess this is the closest we'll get.

Prince was the funkiest, soulful and heatfelt musician I have ever heard sing or play. I am saddened that his gift has left us.

And every time I hear these tributes it makes me even more sad because none of them can compare to the real thing. 😢 Found video last night of 3EG's 2014 London concert at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Amazing show, just balls to the walls rock. Still missing a real rock and roll tribute to Prince. I guess this is the closest we'll get. [Edited 4/8/17 8:45am]

no tribute will ever Compare to Prince because there is only one Prince. His music will live on. We are his living tribute, I understand the saddness because he is not here, we will not see him preform... only thru his music will he live which is so cool....one day wink and yes he was a rocker..he did it ALL.

I think this was a terrific tribute; the best I think I've seen so far. He wasn't trying to imitate Prince but he still maintained a clear reverence for the source material. And Lenny has a sexy/sensual and confident vibe in his performing style that feels in a similar spirit to Prince.

Love it, Lenny! That was really great.

Working with a full choir is something Prince should have done in his lifetime... (Obviously he did work with Sounds of Blackness, but nothing was ever released of these sessions except for some unrecognizable samples on the Batman album.)

Thank you Lenny...I knew he was going to play The Cross when I saw the choir in rehearsal. Nice job.

Awesome tribute... Very well done and I respect that Lenny put his own spin on the songs and didn't try to just imitate Prince like Bruno Mars did. Would love for Lenny to release covers of "When Doves Cry" and "The Cross." Lenny's tribute and Sheila E.'s tribute have been the best.

As for Bruno, I don't think he meant it as disrespectful, but dressing up as Purple Rain Prince was pretty bad. Especially in a tribute so close to his death.

Aside from the Madonna tribute, which everyone seemed to hate the minute they saw it, others tended to be well received initially. I know on Facebook and Twitter and in the media everyone was praising Bruno's performance. I thought it was awful. Lenny's performance didn't wow me either but I definitely preferred it over Bruno's.

The only tribute I had a problem with was Madonna's. The rest were fine.

Lenny's did not wow me either. He was good but I had hoped he would do he solo on the first song too.

D'Angelo and Carlos Santana were better than Lenny, but people have forgotten about those already.

Really liked this one. Lenny is a musician and it makes all difference. And he is not a corny guy (it makes a difference too).

But I am curious about something: the videos of Prince´s performances at the RRHOF were professionally filmed with several cameras.
I only saw one-camera versions of Lenny´s. What happened?

Yeah they'll keep the good parts, they certainly won't cut any of Lenny's tribute. Some of the speeches get kinda long, so they trim them a bit. The inductees usually perform three songs each, they'll broadcast only two of the three songs. That sort of thing.

Lenny and Co. did pay fine Respect. Loved it.

I thought the same, great show from Kravitz.

That is such a great observation. And I didn't realize the choir was on both sides of the stage with the giant Prince backdrop in the middle either. Wishing I had HBO right about now.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

I thought Prince would have loved that - the choir sounded just like the audience (I actually at first thought it was the audience - and you know how much he loved audience participation

What a wonderful wonderful tribute to Prince from Lenny. He knew exactly what to do... Give it his all. It was amazing. I didn't think anyone would be able to do When Doves Cry, but he nailed it. Lenny's and DeAngelo's tribute, the best I've seen yet.. touched yes yes clapping

Watched this on HBO. Lenny did a good job. But about the RRHOF in general, they need a new rule for eligibility. Take ELO who got in this year. Technically they were eligible in 1996, the year artists like Gladys Knight, The Shirelles and Jefferson Airplane were inducted. 21 years after they were eligible they finally got inducted. Or how about Joan Baez who was also inducted this year. She released her first album in 1960. Inducting Joan Baez and Pearl Jam in the same year is ridiculous. The rule should be 25 years after your first recording you become eligible but if you don't get in within 30 or 35 years you're no longer eligible. If I was a member of Journey I would be embarrassed to accept this award 17 years after I was first eligible. Especially when the class of 2000 included artists like the Moonglows and The Lovin' Spoonful. Is there such a dearth of quality artists to induct that they have to reach back to rejects like ELO and Journey?

Fantastic performance. Starting out with WDC and finishing with "The Cross"(a good non-hit choice). It's still touching to me after a year and we are still seeing a celebration of Prince and his music.

The wound still has not fully healed.

I like how he revamped WDC instead of the same copied versions. He caught the ghost a bit there too lol.


They rocked The Cross, too bad it was just a truncated verson (of both songs).

Craig got off on the guitar solo and Gail Anne Dorsey from Bowies last band was nice on WDC too

Sure did, broke out in a mini holy ghost dance. nod

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.
