Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Weeping And Wailing

I won’t pretend to have any insight into Prince’s mind, but I can tell you this with absolute certainty: the phrase “show these motherfuckers how it’s done” flowed mightily through Prince’s stream of consciousness before he took the stage this night.

Actually, he probably thought that before he took every stage.

And make no mistake about it: Prince did not go on the stage. He took the stage.


  1. My wife and I were watching this live when it happened, pretty much bored out of our skulls by the typical parade of “too many white guys with mediocre guitar skills” all-star bullshit…and then…PRINCE…by the time he was done we were laughing out loud at the brilliant fuckery of it

  2. I love how you don’t see the guitar come down – I like to imagine it exploded and three doves flew out.

  3. The Central Shaft

    That look when Petty tries to start singing the bridge again.

    And Petty immediately cools it.

  4. Look the word Epic up in the dictionary
    the only word there is Prince
    He was a mother fucker.

  5. Prince put the peak in that performance!

  6. Not just took the stage, commanded it.


  7. been watching this for years. love it. one of the best ever.
