So, let me begin this post by proclaiming that Prince is the greatest artist of all time. Yes, I am fully aware of the magnitude of that statement, son. No, this isn’t up for debate, man. In any case, I was truly devastated when he died last year. Like, devastated to the point that my wife and friends actually called to check up on me. They all knew how HUGE of a Prince fan I was and still am. With that being said, on the one year anniversary of his passing, I just want to pay homage to the G.O.A.T.
Ok, instead of rambling about how much I want to be Prince, I’ll just let his music do the talking, man. Now, anyone who was familiar with the dude knew he was notorious for taking his art off of the internet. So, it was always hard to find songs to send to people. In any case, there’s a full concert of his that’s been circulating on YouTube for the last two years. The footage is from January of 1982, meaning it’s pre-Revolution and pre-1999. Ultimately, this is young Prince in his rawest form, decimating the audience in front of him. All in all, this is the way I want to remember the man. Anyway, everyone can watch the concert below.
In the end, Rest In Peace to my favorite musician. Shit, my guitar playing is a bit suspect these days, but I’ll be sure to bust out a “chicken grease” chord in Prince’s honor. LC out.
