He was like a god

I found this video today of Prince at the 1985 American Music Awards. I’m sure someone mean at YouTube will eventually find it and block free access to this god-like performance, but while it’s here, let’s enjoy it.

Google says that an average electric guitar weighs about 10 pounds. Even though that doesn’t sound like much, it’s the same weight as an average head. Imagine practicing and performing with the weight of an extra head on a strap around your shoulder. In heels.

Yet, Prince never looked like he was in pain. Obviously, he learned to cover it well, although I’m sure the drugs helped. No matter what, he was… a force. He was like a god.
