Prince- Who Knew

Jo here:

A couple of days ago, I happened to be watching Ice Mummies,  a Nova - 3 part documentary. It's a truly bizarre look at the Incas on Mount Sara Sara in Peru, the Siberian Ice Maiden in the Andes and The Ice Man who was found buried in the Alps. tres, I recommend. Anyway, I took a short breather from all that human child sacrifice to watch George Harrison's 1984 posthumous induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
The special was hosted by absolutely irritating Paul Shaffer, who was/is the conductor of David Letterman's studio orchestra. Where the hell did they find that guy, and why do we see so much of him?

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was played in tribute by Prince (who was also inducted that night), along with Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Steve Ferrone and Dhani Harrison (who by the way, looks EXACTLY like his dad).  But what blew me away was Prince. Sorry- The Artist- formerly known as Prince.  That guys solo is just crazy. I would have also posted When Doves Cry cause I love that song, but apparently, TAFKAP does not allow any videos of him on YouTube.
Luckily this one slipped through. Check it out.
