Sonic Saturday – Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and Others: While My Guitar Gently Weeps

In all we are experiencing these days this song sounds fitting as an expression of grief. In this video the late Tom Petty is doing vocals in this all-star band. Then the late Prince comes on and just rocks one of the best guitar riffs ever.

So many people are weeping and its only appropriate that guitars do the same. People need to be loved even in sad times. It’s important we do love because its needed so much now.

The Hopeful Legacy of Prince

396f451fb517fb9fa0917cc45edbc9c8I hope that kids today will see Prince and say that is awesome music. May that inspire them to learn how to play, write and perform music that lasts generations. Prince can inspire us all to do great things in our chosen field to make our own music.

His life was about doing amazing things that made the world take notice. We all have our influences and may he continue to influence generations of people even in his death. Much like ripples on a pond he made waves and gave the world songs that will last forever.

Rambling About Generational Superstars

When your generations superstars begin to pass into eternity you begin to think about your own mortality. We are here for a time on this place called Earth and we must make the most of it. The music of our times is the soundtrack of our lives and it is the artist, the freak, the geek, the eccentric that creates that sound. I am grateful to every person who dared to dream and to make the world a better place. We can be heroes if we dare to go crazy.
