If you are going to keep doing this, why won’t you post the link directly to the video?
Why do you keep posting links to those crapware laden spy sites that put god knows what on visitors computers?
And don’t answer me via freepmail again.
Answer out here in the open where everyone can see.
yes it is true, the song is self-referential
but check the use of rhythm and rhyme
the song, it saw its full potential
and with this the beatles made their dime
BTW, if you play the song backward you can hear pedantic messages.
Yes, it is better than Your Song, the other Your Song, I Write the Songs, and Fire and Rain, all of which have been a logical mystery to me.
Hey, MY Song is deep, man!
The guy to the right of TP is Dhany Harrison, George’s son. The keyboard player is not Billy Preston.
Blistering! That may be the guitar solo of the decade.
We are changing the subject. Back to the topic. Actually, This Song, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, is Just an Old Fashioned Love Song For You Sung Blue.
Well Prince didn’t ruin the song - he wasn’t half bad IMO - but given the company he was in he would’ve been well advised to tone down the theatrics.
I assumed it was his grandson or something because as it turns out this is an old video from 2004. I should have realized Harrison would have been inducted into the "whatever" hall of fame a long time ago, especially since he died in 2001.
So since this is a 9 year old video, I wonder how Prince is looking these days :). He's always looked young for his age, but it does explain why he didn't look as old as I expected in this video.
I think you are correct!
It was good, but it wasn't that good :P. Go to youtube and watch just about anything from the last 10 years by Joe Bonamassa, then get back to me. I realize this will probably start another subjective "who's the best guitarist ever" flame war like in those stupid "top 100 guitarists of all time" threads, but hey - I got my vote in early for Joe B. :).
Looks JUST LIKE his dad. Only better looking.
Being that they are purely commercial ventures, these “Halls of Fame”, they like to “induct” the big significant people multiple times, and so, Harrison was inducted as a Beatle, and later (why later, I don’t know, but it certainly served the HoF hoopla better that way) as a solo artist, and will be inducted, if he hasn’t been yet, as a member of the Willburys.
there is a story behind it and it is as simple as money. He became a "symbol" or "artist formerly known as Prince" in order to record, release and collect money on projects that he was in charge of. It was a way of getting out of his Sony contract because "Prince" owed them some albums..... but the "symbol" or the "artist formerly known as Prince" didn't owe them dick.
He's a strange dude but very savvy about his money, his music and who controls the master tapes/digital rights. We won't be seeing him in the bankruptcy court anytime soon. Apparently for a real short guy he's a bad a## basketball player also..hahhahahahaa,
LOL!! Thanks. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen that. Should have guessed it would be something from Dave Chappelle. He had a running theme with Prince. Funny stuff.
Who effing cares? If it bothers you so much just post the link to youtube as a comment and be done with it.
If you have to ask who the best ever American guitarist is then you have never heard of Johnny Smith. His best recordings were in the 50’s, but here is a recording at a later age.
Excellent! Nice to see TP, Jeff, and some of the Wilburys getting on to jam...
