The Foo Fighters appeared on The Howard Stern Show to promote "Sonic Highways" and the conversation switched to PRINCE covering "The Best Of You" during his Super Bowl Appearance and then for about 5 minutes.
Dave Grohl talked about just how amazing Prince is.
The Prince talk begins about 15:40 in.
Grohl talks about rehearsing "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin and Dave thinks that Prince blew him off to perform it live. That is NOT true.
Dave, if you are reading this, he did not call you out the following week but he did look for you at other shows and thought you were there and was trying to call up the person he thought was you but his security guard let him know it was not you. True story. In fact, the security guard is now your guard and can confirm this if you ask him.
Also, someone has the footage of the rehearsal of "Whole Lotta Love" but it is misplaced right now.
Dave talked about Prince's recent W Hotel walk on performance that went viral this week. Howard had to talk about the last time he saw Prince and a majority of the show being performed in the dark. Howard needs to bring this up every time he talks about Prince.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Props to Dave and Howard, here is hoping Beth takes you to another Prince show where the lights are on buddy.
Don't miss this week's PRINCE Spreecast!
Legendary music reviewer and interviewer Jon Bream was invited to Paisley Park late Saturday night in Minneapolis to listen to the new "untitled" PRINCE album. Jon Bream was handing Prince awards and accolades long before a majority of the world had a chance to. You could call Bream a Prince historian, so to speak.
Bream wrote about his experience he had late last night for the Star Tribune, also having to write a review for the Bruno Mars show he saw earlier in the night.
Bream talks about the phone call he got to be at Paisley Park around midnight to listen to the new record and how he is now on Prince time. Warner Bros executives unfortunately are not on Prince time and the music icon has had a hard time reaching them in regards to the new album and more than likely the 30th anniversary remastering of "Purple Rain" due for release sometime this year, right WB?
After 1 A.M., Bream was escorted into studio B at Paisley where the 3RDEYEGIRL members were along with their spouses including the producer of the new Prince record, Joshua Welton who Prince described as a rising producer. His tour manager and a Fox 9 reporter were there as well.
Katy Perry has been giving back to schools and teachers. First with a contest that had her perform for them on her 29th birthday. This time, she is giving a million dollars to teacher's education. The pop singer went on Good Morning America to talk about the donation and how important education is.
Diagnosis: As much as we dig Katy, can she translate the tweet below?
Just saw a amazing face off between a hawk and a squirrel. Today is already the best. (both survived)

3RDEYEGIRL just did an interview talking about the new album "PLECTRUMELECTRUM" and working with PRINCE!
A short but good interview. Nice to hear the ladies talk. About Paisley Park. About ping pong. Great. Now I think all of them can whoop my non-existent booty. I'm retiring!
I Love these ladies. There is not much more I can say but take a listen to the interview!-DocFB

EMINEM is about to appear on ESPN alongside Brent Musburger. Why does he all of a sudden look spaced out?
I knew we were about to show the 'Berzerk' video, so I was doing what I call the Berzerk face," he says. "The whole song to me feels like vintage Beastie Boys. And you know the 'Pass the Mic' video where Ad-Rock is making that face, kind of not looking the camera? I was doing my own version."
Eminem discusses this in the new issue of Rolling Stone with Eminem on the cover. This is Em's 8th cover of Rolling Stone.
He talks about that this is the happiest he has ever been and that rap saved him although because of that he considers himself to be an idiot savant.
