Friday Night with Guitar George: Prince Memorial Edition


Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
 –from “Let’s Go Crazy”

A day and a half after the shocking news broke, we are all still reeling from the sudden, unexpected death of musical genius and cultural icon Prince.  His importance both musically and culturally is irrefutable, so there is no need for me to plead his case here.

Prince was the featured artist in the April 17, 2015 edition of FNWGG which is linked here.

As for tonight’s featured video, I chose one that accentuates Prince’s often underrated guitar skills.  Check out 3:27 to 6:12.

I was dreaming when I wrote this, so sue me if I go 2 fast
But life is just a party and parties weren’t meant 2 last
 –from “1999”

Prince Rogers Nelson, 1958-2016

Dirty Dave Brown (@GuitarGeorge9) is a 30-60 year old man, and the father of our very own Stephen Brown. He has a tremendous fear of cats, which precludes him from learning how to internet. Dave was an English major, and is far too smart for his own good. He is currently living a secluded life away from bothersome things like computers, the Hustle, and the Grind. He is the creator of the weekly Friday Night with Guitar George column and a purveyor of all things good.
