I just caught the last 15 minutes of this year's ceremony on VH1 (a taping of last week's live show). I knew Prince was inducted and was curious how the notorious recluse would make his appearance. All I can say is...holy shit! I've cooled off Prince considerably over the years, not agreeing with his artistic direction of late. It's really not been since Sign o' the Times since I dug his stuff, and so I've lost track of his genius. And music in general...blah. But tonight, lying in bed half dozed off, I slowly rose out of bed as Tom Petty and friends played their piece in tribute to George Harrison. In the 2nd piece as it bore full steam, Prince eventually emerged from the anonymous darkened far left of the stage and jammed solo. It's been many years since music sent shivers down my spine, raised my goosebumps. Tonight, I was witness to a mesmerizing performance by an incredible, inimitable performer. Does anyone know if these ceremonies are sold complete on dvd? I believe these VH1 shows are edited. If you loved Prince in the past, catch his performance in this ceremony. I was amazed.
