https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M9...

George seems to be having a great time with Gary. George is shaking his head to play a bit more raunchy/faster. Being a guitar player, George knows what a Gary Moore is and does. My guess is, you would call this "showboating" if the folks from the Prince video were there, and not George.>

You would guess wrong.

That rendition by Gary Moore is obviously very good.

Clearly George approves of it, and they would have rehearsed this beforehand anyway.

It is very much in keeping with the song and reflects well the lyrics and sentiment expressed by Harrison.

Different from Clapton's and very different from Prince's.

In comparing Moore's rendition with Prince's it is clear that Prince went completely over the top.

As Matey correctly pointed out, <Prince was grandstanding at the wrong venue>.

And Savage is also correct in saying <it was the equivalent of a little kid jumping up and down saying "Look at me! Look at me!">

Look Dice, don't get me wrong, Prince was certainly a talented musician and a great guitarist, but <that narcissistic train wreck> did not honour George nor do any justice to one of his greatest songs.

They LOVED to be hated!

Thx! Is that Greeny's guitar?

<OP: Look Dice, don't get me wrong, Prince was certainly a talented musician and a great guitarist, but <he was black>> There, FYP

  HeMateMe: 103 fights, 1,700 penalty minutes, dwarfing the rest of the league, on their way to their first Stanley Cup! Unheard of today. Terrific documentary.

this was the Philly of <Rocky>, punching bag bum running the streets of Philly with his dog, working a second job as a leg breaker for the mob. those were Flyers fans.

  HeMateMe: The Flyers went 35-3 when Kate Smith's <God Bless America> was played on the Philly home ice.

Coincidence, you say?...

May-15-21  Luke Warm: Broad Street Bullies were tough.
So are the Toronto Maple Leafs, wartime winners: Stanley Cups during WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and Vietnam.
May-15-21  Luke Warm: <Kate Smith>
It ain’t over til the plus size woman sings!
May-15-21  Luke Warm: One could say the Raptors earned us a championship during Afghanistan/Iraq: not to hit you over the head.

  HeMateMe: Leafs always won during wars? That's interesting. I'm not sure if native Canadians really followed the Raptors. Toronto has the largest immigrant population in Canada and basketball is a world sport. I would guess the fan base is quite young. Probably no season ticket holders nicknamed 'Moose', huh?

Bob Newhart tries to talk down a suicide jumper:

May-15-21  Luke Warm: I don’t see basketball as particularly more ‘worldly’ than any other sport. Or soccer. How could they be inherently more ethnically broad? Likely an economic answer is forthcoming.

  HeMateMe: the Jamaican immigrants and other islanders are the Toronto raptors fans.

Cool Running baby!

May-15-21  Luke Warm: Meh...most likely I’d be ostracized in attending a basketball game for not knowing the starting players names.
May-15-21  Luke Warm: The Go-Go’s are entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year? I thought they’d be in the first year it started.

Their inductee envelops were sealed.

  HeMateMe: Really? The Go Gos? A couple of hit songs, a couple of tours...the bar has really been lowered. What about Scott Wileland? Rick Wakeman? Sound Garden? A great group like the monkees? Slash as a solo artist?
May-16-21  Keyser Soze: <Slash as a solo artist?> LOL!
