Prince on drums

I know this was pretty rare, but did you see Prince play drums at a show? Details please.

I saw Prince play drums at the Beautiful Experience during the song Peak The Technique, then many years later in October 2015 at Paisley Park for 777-9311.

A short video of Prince on drums in Studio C at Paisley Park, now the Purple Rain room.

Perhaps you forgot the video to "America". He played drums for a bit. He also played on "It's Gonna Be A Beautiful Night" on the SOTT tour while Sheila rapped.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

The only times I can remember was at The Fillmore aftershow 2001 and at the beginning of the ONA show in Vegas before Blackwell took over.

He threw down at the Piano and a Mic aftershow March 21 in Montreal at Club Muzique. Banged away on the floor tom with his hands. Royal Badness.

I love watching him on the drums. I really have to learn to post videos. Then again, I don't want them taken down either sad
