The king of Britpop does it again. He could’ve just played a Prince song, but that’s the easy way out. The fact that he or any member of his touring entourage probably couldn’t replicate whatever guitargasm Prince pulled out of his awesome hair is beside the point. Saying you’re going to play one of the greatest songs ever, which you haven’t played yet on the current tour might be the pinnacle of any possible tribute anyone could’ve conjured up. Bravo, Noel. RIP, Prince.
Side note: Why is the only place I can find Prince’s Super Bowl halftime is on “Veoh” and is smaller than the size of Curt Schilling’s common sense? The quality is also worse than the Zapruder, what shame.
