The Life asked columnist Duff McKagan to give us some music recommendations. Here's what he had to say:
I had the occasion to see Prince
here in the Seattle area on Monday night. It is always like going to musical church for me, seeing this guy and his band play. Epic as always!
"Little Red Corvette" from "1999" (iTunes | Amazon) -- Maybe the best-written rock song ever. Big statement? Whatever. From where I sit, it is a true statement.
"Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" from "Prince" (iTunes | Amazon) -- Listen to this song all the way to the end. The guitar and bass solo are utterly ridiculous. Dude was only about 18 years old when he laid this stuff down.
"The Cross" from "Sign O' The Times" (iTunes | Amazon) -- Two chords and the truth. Period. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/thelife/music/news/story?id=7374362
