That Prince Guitar Solo Is As Fucking Awesome As Everyone Says It Is
Thanks to a sheltered childhood – and dating a music major in college – I’m not a big music person. There’s a ton of shit I missed out for various reasons, so I’m embarrassingly ignorant when it comes to way too many artists’ body of work. Which is why I was fucking blown away when I caved into social media pressure and watched Prince’s guitar solo during a performance of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 because holy Jesus shit. I think I’ve watched it ten times already, and I’m almost positive I’d be content watching nothing else but this for the rest of my life. The solo starts a few minutes in, but seriously watch the whole thing just to experience the joy of wondering why Prince is even there, and then having that question so fully answered you’ll need three cigarettes and a Plan B. It’s that good.
