    The three female backing vocalists were such a major distraction that I had to watch it again, so as to fully appreciate the guitar playing. ;)

    Look at 2:58. How does he get that pitch drop without using the trem? Whammy Pedal?

    I don't think I've ever seen so many people doing tributes. The actual tribute starts at 4:18:

    I've never been a fan of Adam Levine or Maroon 5, but I didnt know he could play guitar like that. He slayed that sh!t.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    "Gotten" is my favourite tune off Slash's 1st solo album.....Adam did the vocals.

    Not a fan of Levine the personality or Maroon 5 in general but I may have too revisit more of his material.
    Definitely No Slouch that's for sure.
    What bothers me about the Prince stuff is that his persona and complete package songwriter sorta overshadowed how Damn Good he was on guitar. I mean when guys like Petty,Clapton,Lynn,Santana etc say someone was The Real Deal on a 6 string that should have been it.
    Sadly we gotta lose somethings before we realize how amazing and special they were.
    I'm a Hard Rock/Metal guy primarily but would Kill too have the chops and repertoire Prince had.
    The Gently Weeps solo was mind blowing and I get chills hearing the complexity within his work.
