If anybody still doubts Prince’s ability to rock, watch his eight-minute Saturday Night Live performance.
With 3rdEyeGirl as his backing band, Prince runs through one song from each of his new albums as well as an Alice Smith cover. Prince plays keyboards for “Clouds,” from Art Offical Age, plays guitar for a hard rocking “Marz,” from PlectrumElecctrum, and jumps unexpectedly into Alice Smith “Another Love,” which finishes the medley with a disgusting guitar solo.
As far as Saturday Night Live performances go, I don’t recall a better one in recent times.
