Jan 011970

As reported earlier today, legendary performer Prince died today at age 57.

As we gather more information and prepare a proper tribute, we are reminded of two popular covers of Prince’s “Purple Rain” that have appeared in recent months on GuitarWorld.com. 

Below, you’ll find a 1992 cover of the song by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Tom Jones from a TV show called Tom Jones: The Right Time, which aired in June of that year. Below that, there’s a homemade clip of Bulgarian guitarist Eva Vergilova performing her own instrumental version of the song. For all about Vergilova, follow her on Facebook and YouTube.
