Prince can rip a guitar

I have to post this.  I just cannot help it.  I heard this song on my mp3 player while riding my bike to work this morning.  I had not heard it in a long long time and it made me go and find it on Youtube.

This is a tribute song to George Harrison from when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.  It features Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, George Harrison’s son and Prince.  It is a really credible version of the song.  Nice playing, nice respect for George etc…  But, the real crowning moment is at 3:29 minutes into the song when Prince just goes off.  He rips into a guitar solo that still makes my jaw drop every I see the video.  Even the other artists on stage are amazed.  Watch George Harrison’s son, as he is completely amazed at Prince at one point.

Enjoy.  I promise it will not be a waste of your time.
