Old School Music Friday...

Hey all...sorry to be late, but the Cali weather has a Negress twisted. Three days ago we had a record breaking heatwave, and yesterday there were tornadoes, mudslides, fires, and snow, hail and thunder storms all in the same day. I mean, what the eff?

But I seriously digress...this week's meme is Best Guitar/Bass Solos. To tell the truth, my favorite guitar solos are by Nirvana, but that would be another digression. This one is a bit cliche, but he is really one of the best guitarists that ever lived. Fans of his weren't surprised by all of the talent that came out in this film, but I believe it was singlehandedly responsible for making the great masses aware of him for the first time. Here he is performing the song that made him an international star at Coachella last month.

Update: Ok, Danielle let me know that the video has been taken down, as is almost anything that has to do with Prince, so here is Maroon 5 covering it (sorry) :-)

We're missing out IW. The vid is no longer available. It's beautiful here in San Fran. Lots of sun if not totally balmy. :-)

You could have posted Nirvana, I love Nirvana. I thought about them, but I settle on Red Hot Chili Peppers. I also thought about Greenday.

Happy OSF! I've learned much new today in seeing all of these guitarists..

I don't know much about guitar solos and such. However, I do know a genius when I see one and I think that Jimi Hendrix was a genius with the guitar. That is why I chose Jimi Hendrix for this week's OSF meme...

peace, Villager

Prince just needs me to come have a little 'talk' with him. Just set that lil' a** straight. Then he'll put all his videos up. LOL
