I Most Likely Wouldn't Die 4 U

Back in 1998 Ang, Amy G. and I saw Prince in concert at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock. He did four costume changes (black, white, red, and purple, duh), writhed on top of a grand piano, and refused to sing a single song in its entirety - totally phoned it in, doing basically a 2-hour medley.

Now in my day I've seen many bands who were past their prime (The Ramones, Blondie, Flock of Seagulls, Blue Öyster Cult, just to name a few) but Prince has got to be the most thrilling and disappointing. I'm pretty sure he was lip-syncing that night in Little Rock...but he was still Prince.

Although I suspect he's now ready for either his own Vegas or Vh1 reality show.
