    Not sure this is the director's anything but there are some changes. For the better?

    I love that vid. He really was a badass.

    I still want to know where his guitar went when he threw it in the air.

    Rocks will be thrown at me for this: I hated it.

    The ceremony was for George and I thought the way he head cut everyone else was bad taste. He turned it into the Prince show.

    I can hear the ignore buttons being clicked.

    I don't know about that...George's son Dhani seemed to be into Prince's performance.

    Im sure he was. I wasn’t and that’s just my feeling. Look at the title of the vid, no mention of George at all. **** his purpleness.:thumbd:

    Dhani looked very happy to be there.
    No man, no hate...Harrison was not about hate. Fact is, everything had been worked out in rehearsal and it woulda never happened if Dhani wasn't on board.

    Thank you! I've said that for years. I'll be taking some of those rocks too.

    You make a clear and concise point, very well articulated.

    I still hated it.

    Prince came in and made his guitar gently weep. No different from what George asked Clapton to do in the original. Think George would’ve loved it.

    No rocks from me, not even a pebble. I'm not real into it either, but...everyone has their own tastes.

    I was more impressed that there were 2 Wilburys onstage, and with Marc Mann's playing.

    The pretentiousness of that element of the performance certainly wasn't consistent with anything we, who shared the planet in Harrison's time, ever came to attribute to him, even in his most exuberantly gregarious lapses...

    The man simply possessed dignity.

    I've seen Prince perform with dignity as well and this...
    wasn't one of those times.

    I've seen Prince play piano and move people to tears. I've seen Prince funk the hell out of it and move people out of their chairs.
    Prince was talented.

    I love it - the whole thing. All the superb musicians. I like this cut because you see Dhani's huge smile.

    Absolutely.
    The man could play. His talent was undeniable. A musical genious coupled to spectacular virtuosity.

    And he had no shame. Coming from his world, in his circumstance, I think being an introvert would not have served him, or us. Had he been, we'd probably never heard of him.

    And, perhaps that was a part of the role he played in this performance...that he wasn't showing off or upstaging anyone, but merely playing a part...

    Dhani looked happy. That's good enough for me.

    Yeah, I watch that clip and I am smiling start to finish. Big stupid grin the whole time. I love everything about it!

    I loved it. I've seen a few stars who are just cliches!
    Prince was never a cliche AND he could make guitars disappear! :D

    It's all part of the show and a good example of showmanship from all of them, what's not to like.
