    I was really excited to see Rhonda with Jeff Beck on the first show of the tour in San Francisco. Once they went on sale and I saw they were $78 before the online "processing" fees, or whatever they call it, I had to sadly pass. As an unemployed 18 year old, I didn't feel like spending all of my money on one concert. A bit pricey if you ask me. I can't justify spending that much money on one ticket, but that's just me. It looks like that show is sold out now, so oh well. Really a shame, I was hoping to see this excellent lineup.

    The latest issue of Rolling Stone has an excellent interview with Eric Clapton & Jeff Beck. They're doing a short tour together, and they sit down & talk about their past, their views of each other, etc. It's very nice to see the mutual admiration, especially for two gunslingers with such different styles. The Yardbirds story is fascinating, how Clapton, then Beck, then Page all came to play with them.

    Painful song to watch people struggle on... almost a painful as drummers trying to cop the drum machine lick.

    There were a few Yardbird songs in my first bands play-list because the older cats that mentored us back then were totally into the Yardbirds. New York City Blues, Mister Your A Better Man, Train Kept A-Rollin'[pre-Aerosmith], it's funny how this stuff stays with you.

    It was actually Rhonda who hipped me to GCS years ago by lending me one of those tapes she was talking about in that interview! At the time I'm sure she never guessed that she'd ever be playing on stage with the man himself...

    Yeah, looks like she got some stage presence lessons too, her body movements seem to be in synch with the groove she's playing and that strut she does...ooo la la...;)

    777-9311 was recorded for the album at Prince's home studio in May-June 1982, the song was produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince with Morris Day later adding his lead vocals.

    prince is a good bass player if you like slappity poppity. not crazy about his sound, but he's got some chops and he's solid. he hung in there and didn't embarrass himself with larry graham on prince's nye 2000 special.
  18. It's sorta comparative.

    Me YOB= 1946.

    Therefor by rule of MY thumb, anyone born after 1960 is a young whippersnapper.

    But, yeah - it was a funny.

    Yup, Prince did all the parts.

    In fact, going back to the comment that started the whole "does Prince have bass skills" question, particularly the thought that somebody else was "under the stage" playing his bass lines.... Prince WAS that guy when Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis didn't make it to a Time show. Prince played bass backstage while someone else (St. Paul Peterson if memory serves) faked it on stage.

    if memory swerves, i recall that prince played bass on sheila e's track "a love bizarre".. that's a sinewy-cool long track with great stuff on the bass end.
