This is a really good article! It's rare that magazines focus on music-making so much. I really appreciated this and got new info. That difficult for head like me!

Here's a secret:
look for the question mark ? in any URL and ONLY copy everything in front of that.

Why?
Because everything else is tracking and advertising leads.

Clickable:

I don't know why this site suddenly hid the coding to insert URLs so they'd be clickable but it's annoying. I know enough basic coding to insert them.

A recent clip from the Welcome to America tour of a massive Prince solo on Play That Funky Music made me once again reconceptualize how great of a guitar player he was. Simply amazing!

That clip is in constant rotation on my YouTube playlist.

He was amazing til the very end.

Is it really that simple- always look for the question mark in the URL? Thanks for the 411...

Yup!!!

Never understood why he had that whammy bar phase.

He never really needed it.

He always had a "natural vibration"

Mike Scott: There’s a live video of us playing in London, and he broke the band down and just had me play by myself, and I was playing this guitar part that was a combination of my part and his part – and then he changed keys and I was still doing it in two-part harmony. That impressed him.

.

Does anybody know which concert he is talking about? Musicology tour? Or from 98?
