Diagnosis: Fun. At the Park? Hmm.
In the middle of the night, this FUNK landed in our inbox along with this message.....
On April 17, 2012, several bystanders in the streets of Chanhassen, Minnesota saw Paisley Park swaying back and forth 2 the sound of "Days of Wild and Loose". This is a copy of the 19 minute rehearsal of that jam!
Prince and The New Power Generation
..."Aint nobody LOVE YA betta than AUSTRALIA!"
Wow. Just...wow. What do U all think?-DocFB
Wow. PRINCE and the NPG are in rehearsal for the Welcome 2 Australia tour!!! Ticket sales are BLAZING. What started as 3 shows is now up to 6. Australia, how many shows can U handle?
To begin every week of rehearsal, to get the rust off, PRINCE and the band jam one song for 30-45 minutes.
"The Dance Electric" in its original form with vocals will be one of the featured encore songs for the Welcome 2 Australia tour.
Get ready to DANCE!!!
P.S. PRINCE and the band are currently taking requests for desired tunes for the setlist.
So......what do U all want to hear???-DocFB
Steven Tyler, Alice Cooper and Weird Al, yes, Weird Al were jamming together for New years Eve. They even covered "Come Together" by The Beatles.
In one of the oddest pairings in rock and roll history, Weird Al killed it! Can we even mention Steven Tyler showing even though he is engaged to a 30 something year old, he can still hang?
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
Check it out and let me know what you think.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Check out Mike Myers getting on stage at the end....
UPDATE (5:43pm PT): So Lenny was ON stage with Prince, but there was no joint performance. Sorry guys.
UPDATE (2:45pm PT): Lenny is on stage with Prince right now...
So, we are hearing that Lenny Kravitz is at Prince's show in Rome, Italy RIGHT NOW and may join him for a bit to jam.
It's rumor only but if it happens, we will keep you posted. Man, that would be one killer jam if it goes down. Is Rock n' Roll alive or dead? Stay tuned to find out. -Dr.FB
