Well done Hannah in playing with a legend and delivering the goods in front of thousands of people. Great gig to pick up!
April , just looking at this Billboard awards video I can see where you're coming from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__eci6YNWfg
Does this mean Prince is saving money by moving away from his large funky showbands to playing a small straight rock band? I agree that the band has less drive than the top rock players. Maybe Prince wants to play something more raw and rootsy without so much gloss to be different?
Personally, I find it refreshing to hear some old fashioned rock with some push and pull in it.
