Prince – Gold
This week we lost a legend. A unique songwriter, producer, arranger, singer and multi instrumentalist. Prince was also an outstanding guitarist and, as anyone who saw him live will testify, an electrifying live performer. Artistically bold and incredibly prolific he straddled rock, pop, blues, funk, soul, dance and R&B without once diluting his own distinctive sound. In tribute, here’s a track from ‘The Gold Experience’ – a tour he brought to Birmingham NEC in 1995.
