I just got back from a two and a half hour show where Prince led a band consisting of, at various times, George Clinton, Maceo Parker, Larry Graham, ?uestlove of the Roots, Musiq, Alicia Keys, Candy Dulfer, Doug E. Fresh, and Renato Neto, a terrific keyboard player who looks a hell of a lot like David Wertheimer. Then on the way out I walked into Chris Rock and he said hello.
The best part? That was just the afterparty; the 4-hour Prince concert at Lincoln Center (including sitting in on the sound check) that preceded it was even better. All you shoe-gazing indie rock motherfuckers are gonna regret someday that you didn’t find the funk back when you was still young enough to shake that ass.
