His Royal Purpleness
Wait for it... at about the 3:35 mark Prince appears and reminds me that despite his flakiness that he is a great guitar player. That is George Harrison's son Dhani.
Prince bought a house in Toronto in 2004. I think he's still here - I haven't heard that he moved. It's just off the Bridle Path. I heard a clip on CBC Radio, when they were asking for "brushes with fame", from a middle-aged fellow who said he and his teen-aged son used to jam at a Yorkville bar; he played guitar and his son drummed. Prince jumped on stage unannounced and joined them. Dad bowed and gave up the spotlight and let his son bask in the experience of drumming with Prince.
You know - I was going to place the video of the half-time show here but Prince wants all unauthorized clips of him taken of Youtube. The performance can be viewed here at dailymotion.com if you're curious.
