    ...and just a bad-ass musician, in general.

    I know you are, but what am I?
    Entwistle ....

    but, yeah, Prince is one of the most amazing musicians I've ever seen perform live.

    Found his guitar solo in the George Harrison tribute - blown away. What a talent.

  9. Love Prince's bass playing - had to play Let's Work this morning after reading.

    But I don't get the Entwhistle reference at all.

  10. WOW! He does it all!

    What kinda bass is that! That is something else!

    That slide down a high string while trem picking move is signature Ox.

    Prince > every other pop musician ever.
  14. Just saw this guy live. Easily one of the best shows ever.

    There isn't anywhere else that hosts this video, is there? Youtube's blocked at my job :(

    I use Browsertunnel.com when on a computer with limited access.
  16. Wait!! Look at the position of his left thumb throughout the video. He is wrapping it around the the top of the neck. Such terrible form. A proper bass and guitar players keep their thumb at the back of the neck centered with their left hand. It's obvious he was not formally trained. Heck, he probably can't read music either. Kidding gang. I rate him up there with Macca. They can both go in a studio alone and write, do all vocals and all instruments on a CD.

    No, it's a headless bass, but I forget what kind. The Roland had the strut going over the top.

    But yeah, Prince is a badass. He plays most of the instruments on his recordings.
