Ridiculous, positively ridiculous. I often wonder where his guitar went.

It was given to Oprah for a charity thing from what I heard.

Prince being pushed back on stage was a stunt right?

Yes, he had a person lined up to assist with that.

Yeah I was thinking it was a trick, but given Prince body flexibility I assume he could came back by himself, a lot of Jimi Hendrix style in that solo

Am I right in saying he had never heard that song before?

I've heard conflicting stories on that, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Ah, I didn't know that but what I meant was; where did his guitar go after he threw it up in the air.

He had a person ready to catch it down in the first row.

Highly doubt thats true. Prince was a music fanatic. He surely would of heard one of the most famous bands in the worlds songs. Especially if he was to perform it with george son and on national tv.

Even this interview proposed around the world in a day was inspired via Sgt Peppers/magical mystery tour after picking it up off bobby z from the revolution.

I reckon he would of expanded and listened to other songs or members solos especially Georges.

What I had read though he never rehearsed the solo with the others. The solo was a surprise.

For most Prince fans, this was just Prince being Prince. We knew for years he could play like this, it only came as a surprise to the people who never knew the full breadth and scope of his talent as a musician. 

For sure. I certainly feel that way myself. The Super Bowl performance was the same way for me. Nearly everyone I know shit their pants and was like "Wow, how amazing". My take was "Yeah, that's just Prince doing what he does". 

Both performances are stunning to casual or non Prince fans though.

I think a lot of rock fans, especially throughout the 90s/early 00s didn't really have Prince on their radar, so when he did shit like the Superbowl or the Rock Hall performance, people were genuinely shocked at how great he was.
