"Let's watch Prince's 2007 Super Bowl halftime show, the best we've ever seen"

So wrote Deadspin about his iconic performance in a driving rain in Miami on February 4, 2007.

Prince's death in 2016 at 57 triggered immense sadness here.

He was the ONLY performer I'd have traveled to another city to see.

Too bad I waited until I was ready instead of getting on a plane when he was ready.

Encore?

How about his performance (below) of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at the 2004 Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame Inductions?

It left the world-class, iconic musicians on the stage with him — among them Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison, and Steve Winwood — with their collective jaws dropping.

The musicians and producer reminisced about this iconic rock moment in an April 28, 2016 New York Times story.

Prince was one of the greats. He died too soon. Leaving us too many years without new creations from his genius.

The second performance I always refer to as "my church." Their jaws dropped, sure, but they are also suffused with wonder and joy. Prince was a messenger from another dimension.
