The Artist

I'm watching Saturday Night Live right now. Its the 14th time Steve Martin has hosted - a pretty nice record. He's great and all, but Prince is the musical artist. I've always dug that guy, but tonight's first performance was a remnder not only of Prince's flamboyance and innate stage presence, but of his amazing music ability. Especially, that is, if you're looking at him with a guitarist's perspective. I think I heard once that Prince had been voted best guitarist of some-odd year or something. If he wasn't, the first performance - "Like a Woman Scorned," or something to that extent (seemed new) - should warrant such an award. I seriously thought his Strat was going to bust into flames... Purple flames.
