Some call it the greatest guitar solo ever. It certainly marked Prince as amongst the best all time great guitarists. At the Hall of Fame induction for George Harrison, Prince cut loose on this Beatles classic and no rock and roll hero could have had a better send off.
Who will do the same for Prince himself? He was such a multi talented artist and performer that it feeels like there needs to be a whole stage full of talent to do him justice.
He visited NYC to perform and he donated money to causes dear to his heart such as Harlem’s Children’s Zone which helps poor Harlem families and their children and the UpTown Dance Academy.
But his true NYC heritage is the multitude of New York musicians and performers who were influenced by him, by the sheer breadth of genius and his extraordinary dedication to his art.
