Prince a God?

So did Prince make it rain at the Super Bowl? Does he have that power? I wouldn't put it past him. The bigger question is Why did he feel like he needed to do covers? Of course, we know the answer to that: He is Advanced. I liked mostly everything about his performance, especially his starting with the "We Will Rock You" drums. I know when I think of Prince, I think of Queen.

Prince always has the best sounding guitar. It has a sort of Jimi Hendrix quality, but it still sounds modern. It was a bit high in the mix, but when a guy can play like that, I'm not going to complain. I loved that he started with a regular Telecaster and ended with the purple Phallicaster. I particular appreciated his trick of projecting himself in profile to a flowing sheet. Napoleon invented that, by the way. Also, and somewhat related, does anyone move better in heels? He should be a model coach if you ask me. He could make lots of money that way. I was also glad to see that he protected his hair from the rain.

I can't think of anything else to say about his performance. It was everything I thought it would be, plus CCR. Now onto to daydreaming out the Police reunion...

Watching Prince during the half-time show made my year! Ok, maybe not, but damn!! That man is FINE. The Foo Fighters cover was really Advanced. Splendid.

So it was the Foo Fighters. I wondered what that song was!
